“One of Sydney's Famour Landmarks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

You can get stunning views from with both the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge from a great vantage point in the Botanical Gardens (I believe it is called Mrs Macquaries Point).

It is a landmark of the city and something everyone should see when visiting Sydney.

“Sydney Harbour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

Center of action, beautiful views, near to many attractions, restaurants, ferries. You can't be in Sydney without spending some time around the harbour area.
