Must go after visiting the Opera House.

Very easy walk and the scenic view is along the coastline to Mrs Macquaries Chair is cool. Return duration will take you about an hour ( speed dependent of course )

Great view of the sunset too if you're going in the evening.

TIP :
Just take note that closing hours.

If you missed this, the park will be closed and you have to walk at the outer perimeter of the park and it's quite a distance to get back to Circular Quay. maybe 15mins more.

“A relaxing afternoon of people watching”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

In April the flowers are in full bloom, and the area is just relaxing and wonderful. Grab a coffee in the coffee shop, and sit on a bench and enjoy the view of the harbor, the joggers, and people relaxing on their lunch hour. You can spend all day in the botanical gardens walking around and this walk is worth the exercise.

“Explore thoroughly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Beautiful if you explore the full gardens. The first time I went I only explored the waterfront, but you need to fully walk in to the gardens to get the full effect. There was a flower garden in spring I particularly liked

“Great stroll for taking in the sights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

This walk is gentle and gradually takes you to a vantage point at Mrs Macquaries Chair where you can take in views of the Opera House and Harbour. The Botanic Gardens itself is a great place for children to run around and let off steam. Fun for all!

“very nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

very nice walk nive café At the end of the tour, they shouldn't charge $40 for a touchedup photo they took at the beginning of it. This is worth it $10 max, together with a 3 mins video cd, etc. They could make more money because everybody could buy it and the price would be honest
