Dont miss this easy walk around the harbor to the Botanical Garden beautifully lush and colorful. Stop to watch the bats rustling in the trees, it's as unique as it is eerie.

This is a wonderful walk. We spent about two hours walking along the gardens and the water to the opera house. You can go at your own pace (just don't get trampled by all the runners!) and take in all the wonderful views. Take time to look up in the trees. We saw lots of different birds, some of which are very colorful! There are many different varieties of trees to look at as well. And of course the water, boats, and the opera house. And all the views are free!

The Botanic Gardens and Sydney Opera House walk. I usually walk from the Art Gallery of NSW through the Botanic Gardens to the Opera House. This is a beautiful walk. you can take your time strolling through the gardens, looking at the magnificent exotic trees, beautiful blooms, have a picnic on the grass (you are allowed to walk/play/picnic on the grass) or have a meal or snack in the restaurant/cafe and continue your stroll toward the waters edge and the fantastic views of a busy Sydney Harbour and the white sails of The Sydney Opera House. It doesn't get much better than that.

It's a delightful way to spend a Sunday afternoon, strolling along the foreshore, inhaling all the wonderful scents of the gardens in bloom.
