A beautiful garden to wander in and take in the views. Lots of different places within the park to wander in . Nice clean cafes too. Great to run around in the early morning if you are a Runner!

If you love trees and want to see some big ones, I recommend a visit here. The trees are fabulous and there are lots of other plants to see as well. It is a great place to pass an afternoon or two.

We took a stroll through the gardens and marvelled at the layout and fantatstic plants and local bird life. It was all the more interesting because of the city skyline behind in complete contrast to the gardens.

Very pleasant gardens, and an opportunity to hear some interesting history about Australia's beginnings, what we really appreciated were the sweeping views. Pick a day with good visibility.

Nature in the city center. Walking through the "rainforest", watching the birds walk by. Looking at the flying dogs. Never was in such park.

Apart from the perfectly manicured gardens, apart from the facilities and easy walking paths, the Royal Botanic Gardens borders Sydney Harbour with fantastic vistas which include The Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House. Well worth an easy walk through/

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
