This walk provides amazings views on Opera house, Harbour bridge and skyline of Sydney. TiP: don't forget to visit "Mrs Macquarie’s Chair" after passing by the "Royal Botanic Garden".

Along the waterfront, through the gardens, reading about the trees and shrubs. Fabulous colours and aromas. Sea on your left, flora on your right. Opposite when you come back! Perfect hours walking.

We had plenty of time and actually did this walk twice because the Gardens were wonderful and the final destination (Opera House) was certainly worth it. Even though it was a bit windy and cold the Botanic Gardens were so good that you could just leisurely take your time and look at everything they had to offer and you always... More

Great way to enjoy the best of Sydney. Very relaxing as the walk is away from traffic and city noises. Perfect way to fill in an hour or 2.

The walk from the Opera House to the Botanic Gardens is pleasant and should you so wish, you can immediately walk into the gardens, however we decided to walk on along the sea front and then into the gardens. The walk along the sea front is nothing spectacular as the sea is on your left and the gardens on your... More

If you have time to just take a light walk with someone or by yourself. You can see some ice looking plants and flowers. Great first date spot

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.
