“Probably the wrong time to visit...”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

What garden? There was practically nothing there when I went and it could have passed for a standard park. In fact, other Sydney parks were "better" with more greenery and flowers.

“A HAPPY WALK HOME”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

We had spent a long time at the Chinese Gardens and the Rocks, so the walk home was potentially tiring, but going through the gardens was calming and lovely. The options for photography were great, so the photographer in our group has a lovely collection.

“Stunning!”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

One of the best botanical gardens that we have ever visited. Well laid out, well signposted, with Aboriginal cultural artefacts, and Government House adjacent.
Free to visit.
Busy, excellent coffee shop.
