Beautiful expanse of green all around combined with the awe-inspiring views of the Sydney Harbour, Harbour Bridge & Sydney Opera House. Best place to get your selfies with the Opera house in the background. Loved the herb gardens. Perfect picnic spot on a sunny day...More

A tranquil escape from busy city centre. Great for a wander. Especially nice in summer when occasionally pop up bars open at the far end - worth checking if a nice day.

We went to see Calyx, the beautiful floral wall within the gardens which was wonderful but also loved wandering through this tranquil place in Sydney CBD.

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
