Great gardens, perfectly located, enjoyed all of the palms, florals, and sculptured gardens. Easy to access from several major roadways. Within easy walk of harbour.

“Great park to relax and it's free!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

Found this great park just next to the Opera House. My first intentions were to visit the Opera House, but this park was far more interesting! Do come early as it get's bit crowded in the afternoon. Encounter many exotic trees, have your lunch on the grass, feed the lovely birds, have a nice view of the towers next to it, and do some sports!

“stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

A most beautiful walk, stunning scenery, the harbour at its best and the grass is enought to make you want to lay on it.

“Beautiful Gardens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

The Royal Botanic Gardens are lovely. You could easily spend all day wandering around and is perfect for a picnic or afternoon nap. They even have signs posted inviting you to take off your shoes, walk in the grass, etc.

“Beautiful grounds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

The RBG is a beautiful park/garden in the center of many tourist attractions which makes it a nice "escape" in the city. It is easy to access and right near the Opera House. It is a great place to people watch, wander, or maybe even have a picnic. I found the signs indicating the layout of various parts of the garden somewhat confusing to follow, which made it difficult to navigate for a first-time visitor.
