“One of the best short walks in the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Love this beautifula nd iconic part of Sydney.
It starts with the worlds most recognisable building, a work of art that is spectacular in real life and moves through to exquisite nature in particular the wide lawns, ancient trees and lovely ponds with birdlife. All the while hugging the gorgeous Sydney harbour and watching the boats and ferries glide by.

Go all the way through the gardens to Lady Macquaries chair, take a picnic or stop by at the Botanical Gardens cafe.

This is one of the nicest things to do in Sydney. You get a view of the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge in 1 go.

“Nice and Relaxing walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

This is a lovely walk to do away from the City and the traffic. Take a stroll from The Opera House through The Batanic Gardens, have lunch at the nice Cafe or get something from the take away cafe, there is plenty of space for everyone to relax and enjoy the gardens and theView of the Harbour.I feel we are so lucky to live in Sydney as there is always something to do in and around the City. Regards, Marion.

“WOW - its even better in person”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

I have seen postcards of The Opera House. Now I have ferried past it, walked around it and inside it. It is amazing. It is so big, well laid out. Heaps of helpful staff, and food places to eat. If you visit Sydney you should visit the Sydney Opera House
