I live close by and have done this walk often. There's always something different to see, whether in the garden or the harbour. Seasons and weather play their part, but it's always beautiful. Worth foing.

After visiting the Opera House we strolled along the front towards the botanic gardens, some brilliant scenery on a warm autumn day

We walk 5 days a week. Rest on weekends. With Spring just around the corner the Botanic Gardens will burst into the most colourful scene. Full blooms everywhere. Many great statues. Unbelievable views of Sydney Harbour. Great lakes. Bird life all over. Magnificent city views. A flat walk except for the Queen Elizabeth Steps but you can bypass them if... More

We found this to be a pleasant walk along the harbor. With a different view of the Opera House, And Bridge. You have the Royal Botanic Gardens on one side of the walkway and the Sydney Harbor on the other.Great to take a nice walk and take some pictures.

My boyfriend & I were vacationing, in Sydney, Australia, in May 2016. We decided to get up very early one Saturday morning and walk, from our hotel, to the Sydney Opera House then onto The Botanical Gardens before all the other tourists were out and about. I am so glad we did because it was beautiful and so tranquil! It... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
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 or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
