After a very very long flight from Seoul to Sydney, it was fabulous being out in this beautiful park, with spectacular views. It wasn't too crowded either, during winter.

A fabulous way of seeing the opera house and harbour bridge from a different perspective. Avoid the crowds and see an icon from a more peaceful perspective!

Pick up a sandwich and walk over to the Botanic Gardens near the opera house. The green lawns are just begging you to sit and relax awhile. Take time to relax and enjoy the view.

It would be a great shame to visit the Opera House and miss out on the walk through the Botanic Gardens. Even if you're not interested in what's growing there, wandering through this green space with the harbour on one side and the towering skyscrapers of downtown on the other is a sublime experience.

I always enjoy a walk through the botanic garden when in Sydney, the walk from the opera house to Chair is a pleasure in spring with so much to see in this well kept garden.

I walked from the Art Gallery of New South Wales to the Opera House through the Royal Botanical Gardens. What a beautiful--and, thankfully, flat--walk on paved paths through gorgeous plants and trees. Well labeled and well sign posted. Could have spent hours. Picturesque scenes of Aussies at exercise. (You also glimpse Government House, where Wills, Kate and George stayed.) I... More

OMG first time in Sydney and i finally saw the Opera House! The structure is very beautiful and so huge! I was not expecting the Opera House to be so huge.... something to know: it was designed to looks like clouds of the sky, not sails. Botanic Garden is huuuge.. beautiful and very relaxing.
