The Opera House to the Botanic Gardens Walk
Ranked #6 of 487 things to do in Sydney
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed November 2, 2013

We enjoyed the walk - had to dodge the hordes of office-workers having work-outs and jogs and power-walks along the same route-and they are (mostly..) VERY rude Sydneysiders. We managed fantastic photos. Seen a great variety of birds, a possum and even a tree-kangaroo !. Views are to die for. The Botanical Garden with it's population of Bats is very interesting . I found the gardens needed some serious tending in places. Also some rubbish laying around. A good experience though. Try it !

I did this walk a couple of times when I stayed in Sydney on business earlier in the year. One morning was a pea soup fog and it almost obscured the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. The next day was fine. A great way to start the day!

Beautiful views and walk. Note that the Government House is only open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. It is free but they close, as we found out without notice for private events. The grounds stay open.

Two great sights next to each other. After the spectacular view of the opera house and lounging at the Opera Bar with a view of the Harbour Bridge, we made our way to the Royal Botanical Gardens,took around 5min. if you pass the side of the opera house.Such a great garden to chill in, lovely place to have a picture, to bring the kids or your pets. Interesting things to see here with a great view.

We walked from the CBD to the gardens, to Mrs. MacQuarrie's Chair and on the the Opera House and Circular Key. There are many great views.
