A lovely place for a wander. I really like a bit of green space in a built up area & this certainly delivers that. Well maintained & if you wander along the waterside you get some lovely views of the high rise buildings & the...More

We took a large group of students from Hong Kong through the Gardens recently and they had a marvellous time indeed. The springlike winter weather sparkled and photo opportunities abounded. Large fruit bats hung suspended elegantly from the trees and the students particularly loved the...More

We often walk to the Botanic Garden at weekends. There is a lot of variety. I love theme places, especially cactus one. Ponds are very nice as well. And you can spend hours sitting or laying on the loans.

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
