“green space in the city”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

This is a great place to watch the people of Sydney never mind all the plants and trees. It is an excellent spot to take a picnic and relax in the centre of such a vibrant city

“Beautiful”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

These gardens are fantastic. I walked different parts of the gardens on different days. Be sure to take your camera - the view of the bridge and Opera House are spectacular in the morning. Lots of runners, too, on the path in the morning. Just gorgeous.

“BEAUTIFUL!!!!!”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

Easily one of the nicest botantical gardens I have visited. Easy walking distance from any city Hotel and situated right next to the iconic Opera House.

The gardens are very well maintained and well worth a visit!

“Royal botanical gardens”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

This is a lovely walk and a nice break from the city even though it is right in the city. There are many spaces to rest and many flowers to see. The different exhibits are all interesting but this space is just restful and a good place to slow down for a bit.
