“Toured Governor's House/Botanic Gardens and jogging/walking trail around to Opera House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

What a lovely couple of hours to spend. We didn't go inside the Governor's house because we would've had to wait another 30 minutes. But we looked around outside and of course the Botanical Gardens surrounding it. There's a nice trail that goes entirely around the harbor. From the botanical gardens, walk left on the trail and it takes you to the back side of the Opera House and the Quay beyond that. Lovely!

“Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Nice walk, although there is a lot of construction right now which sort of ruins the views etc. Double check the hours of the botanical garden if you are planning an early morning or evening walk.

“One of the best ways to see the Harbour.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Aside from the Manly Ferry, this walk is probably the other best way to see the iconic Harbour Bridge and Opera House. Walking from Mrs Macquaries Chair to the Opera House offers sweeping views of Circular Quay amongst the atmosphere of the lovely Botanic Gardens. An easy flat walk. We were hurrying for the ferry and did it in under 20 mins.
