Unless you really know your trees and plants, absolutely go on one of the free guided 1 hr walks offered by the Gardens. We had a very knowledgeable understated guide who brought the Gardens to life for us.

A really love the botanic gardens; they exist as the perfect running escape, close to the city and a million miles from anywhere; but with truly exquisite harbour views. Escape the humdrum of the city and discover the relaxed environment of these wonderful gardens.

Great place to explore for a walk on green grass, while enjoying the excellent view of the bay, listening to the song of birds and taking the fresh air among the trees. As of nature you may encounter smells of birds' poo, but it is...More

The gardens was realy nice and a lovely place to take a rest in a busy leisure trip. The Macquarrie's seat offers an incredible view on the bay.

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
