The Botanic Gardens are magnificently positioned at the end of Art Gallery Road and abutting the Sydney Opera House. Take a lovely easy stroll around the paths or just lay on the grass under a tree and read a book or watch the beautiful harbour

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
