Gardens are kept really well, lots of information can be found explaining what is going on there. Lots of varied birds, lots of varied sized joggers too...we were in there at lunchtime!

The garden was a huge place with the Government House. Visited the Calyx and there was a pretty indoor exhibition.

The location of the gardens is awesome, there's lots to see and some great views along the way. The Gardens also contain lots of old trees plants and historical items. A network of paths crisscross the gardens and signs mean you can easily find your way round. This is a free activity and theres places to eat and drink within the gardens or just on the outskirts. Highly recommended

The Government House building is stunning with amazing architecture. The tours only run on certain days, but even if the house is closed it is still absolutely worth walking around these beautiful gardens,

This is one of the best garden, I have ever seen, well maintained, A lot of varieties of trees and birds to watch. Very quite and peaceful place and anyone can spare few hours time in reading. One can jog and do cycling in this park as well. the view of Opera House,Harbour bridge & Sydney Tower is amazing in the morning time.
