Large free garden with tons of places to get good exercise/jog/bike in gorgeous scenery.

Lots of huge trees that remind me of the trees in the movie, "Lord of the Rings". Has a Cactus Garden and a Rose Garden. Playgrounds for children are there but difficult to find (near the walkway between the Botanic Gardens and the Opera House along the ocean).

Greenhouse was not open.

You definitely can spend at least 2-3 hours exploring. I didn't even realize that the Botanic Gardens stretched all the way to the sea until I took the Walkway between the Opera House and the Botanic Gardens.

Tons of places to take pictures with great views and FREE!

The gardens are great. One of my favorite parts was seeing all the flying foxes hanging in the trees. It was full of beauty and a really pretty walk.

An excellent display in superb surroundings , but , given the climate it should not be a problem . There were a lot of Cranes present , which , for some reason are presenting a problem?

Love the sprawling lawns and soaring trees and countless picnic spots... Laid-back, effortless, picture-perfect Sydney.

Just the most relaxingly beautiful stroll I've had in a long time. Lush green, blue sky shining, perfect backdrop. I love you Sydney!
