They have built it up nicely and have maintained it very clean and tidy. But I find it just another Botanic garden having travelled half of the world.

I love walking around the botanic gardens then sit looking at the views over the water and of the city. You can also catch a little train around to get a good look at the whole place. It is also very close to the museum,...More

One of the coolest places to visit while you are in Sydney. This is a great place to eat lunch or just kick back and take in all the plants and trees.

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
