A lovely, well-kept place, with an amazing flora/fauna. Feeding the birds was one of the best-kept souvenirs we have of sydney!

For such an iconic city I expected far more than we experienced. Maybe it was the time of year that we went but it all looked a bit 'tired' and unloved' in places. Some parts were well kept and tidy but these only managed to show up the more 'neglected' areas. Even the Palm House failed to impress. Sorry Sydney! However, on a sunny afternoon it is a pleasant place to stroll.

It is a beautiful garden with stunning views. There is so much to see - I particularly love the succulent garden. It is a beautiful place for a picnic. You could spend hours watching the world pass by in this stunning location.

Lovely to walk through the gardens, meet up with friends for a picnic or just lie reading a book.
The gardens are lovely, the eatery there is excellent.
Great place to go & chill out & enjoy the sunshine & of course the plants & trees.

No matter what path, you'll end up somewhere with an amazing view. I went for a run around and ended up forcing myself to do another lap it was that good! On a morning with sun out in Summer, not sure it gets much better than this.
