The Royal Botanic Gardens are close to the Sydney Opera House and Circular Quary - so right in the heart of the area very attractive to tourists. The gardens have interesting flowers, as well as hot houses and other display areas. Worth several hours of meandering around. Work your way to the Opera House, then around the corner to a coffee on the Quay.

The Royal Botanical Garden is an awesome place to relax your mind, be it with families or simply alone. On weekend especially you would see many many weddings there and kids running around as the Sydney siders jog around the park, Amazing place!

We wandered through the gardens one morning for 2 hours and it's well worth the visit. The fern garden and lower garden near the water are very nice, it's also a great route to walk to the opera house if you're in the Kings cross area

A great walk in the park with very interesting plants - and it's all free! Well worth the walk. Very interesting fern house.
