Great variety and constant upgrade of Gardens happening. Wonderful walking paths with graceful aged trees. I particularly liked the mare & foal sculpture down by the harbour donated by the Art Gallery of NSW. Train & free guided tours a bonus.

Open spaces, formal gardens, shady trees and interesting paths make the gardens a tranquil place to visit. Volunteers are available if you need to know about the fauna. Chill out in a peaceful environment overlooking the harbor. Its proximity to the city makes it a...More

This garden is huge. We took the mini train called the Chou Chou express. I recommend it as they take you to different parts of the park that would take really long to walk to. They also let you hop off and back on throughout...More

Very large garden and well maintained . The pollination exhibit in the Calyx was the highlight . And yes the little train ride was fun. The attendant on my two rides had somewhat different versions but both were entertaining!

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
