“Invigorating Walk On The Wild Side”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

The Botanic Gardens are a serene oasis in a bustling city .There are many attractions ,the Cacti Garden , The Green house ,The Tropical Centre and of course towering trees ,indiginous plants ,rare plant specimens ,a gorgeous lake with assorted aquatic animals and plants .The setting is magical with paths meandering along the water,s edge and gorgeous views across the Harbour and grassy areas perfect for alfresco dining . If you are travelling with children there is a cute miniature train that takes you all around the gardens , it is a lot of fun !

“My favourite botanic gardens!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Situated on Farm Cove, these gardens are unlike others you've visited. Walking from the Opera House gives you the best aspect of them.

I love it. From the arboretum to the cactus garden, the fern house to the cafe on the ponds. Prairie garden to tropical pyramid. It's just beautiful.

I challenge you to find all the fountains.

“A pleasant stroll when the weather fine”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is a great vantage point to see a great deal of the inner reaches of Sydney Harbour. There are great views of the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge. The Botanical Gardens, the Domain and surrounds are a great place to feel the breeze in your face and get some fresh air - only a short step from the middle of the CBD.

Reviewed April 15, 2014

If you have free time, go for a walk beween the opera and the botanical garden especially in the early evening and watch the colors of the sky till the night. The cafe and restaurants are very good ,all have the nicest view
