“Great activity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Spent the morning walking the grounds of the Royal Botanic Gardens - incredible views, interesting plants, lots of walk ways. That Australian's devote prime retail land to beautiful parks says a lot about what they value!

“Wonderful place to chill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

If you want to relax on the grass and at the same time have a beautiful view of the harbour and the Sydney Opera House, that's the place to be.

“Right in the heart of the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

The one thing the Australians are not short of is space, as demonstrated by this wonderful park adjacent to the Central Business District. Strolling round here for a couple of hours is simply a joy

“A wonderful place to relax.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Views spectacular, gardens well kept and beautiful, plenty of areas to just sit and think about nothing. These gardens are a must for any overseas visitor and somewhere I always take friends coming to Sydney.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Gardens were very nice and well maintained. We walked around for about an hour and a half in the Gardens. I think we only saw a small portion of what is actually there but what we did see was lovely. Recommend it to anyone visiting Sydney.
