We spent the last morning in Sydney to walk Royal Botanic Garden. We walked from from the side of Opera House & back to Hyde Park. A nice, big, quiet & safe garden. We missed the chance to visit the Government House due to too...More

Took the kids scootering through Royal Botanic Gardens during the school holidays (although technically I don't think you supposed to). It's a gem that you know is there, but every now and then you have to drag yourself through the gardens to realise how good...More

One of my favorite spots in Sydney. They have beatiful planta and flowers. You can go for a walk, stop to see the view or for a picnic. During summer they also have an open cinema. Beautiful place.

After a walk around the rocks to the opera house, exiting the area via the Botanical Gardens was appealing, heading towards Hyde Park. Slightly undulating, otherwise an easy and enjoyable walk

Close to the city and a very easy stroll for people of all ages. There are amazing plants with an array of colors. We certainly enjoyed ourselves and would recommend the Botanical Gardens for anyone wanting to have a relaxing time and to get away...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
