I would recommend this tour to everyone visiting Sydney short or long term. The guides provide excellent insights on the life at the harbourside before and after colonisation. The gardens are beautiful and the explanation about the trees, plants and flowers very interesting! The guides...More

The Botanic Gardens are magnificently positioned at the end of Art Gallery Road and abutting the Sydney Opera House. Take a lovely easy stroll around the paths or just lay on the grass under a tree and read a book or watch the beautiful harbour

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
