Owner description: Located by the Royal Botanic Gardens, the bench known as Mrs. Macquarie's Chair was carved out of sandstone in the early 1800s for Govenor Lachlan Macquarie's wife, Elizabeth. It became her favorite spot to look upon the harbour and serves that same purpose today for visitors who take a moment to rest there.

“Fantastic views of sydney harbour, Opera House, and Bridge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

It's the best spot for appreciating the harbour and how the city interfaces with it. So close to the city and yet a place of quiet contemplation
