This is a wonderful garden in Sydney. Various plants and thematic areas. It's a fine place to relax, take a stroll on a sunny day. There are these stunning, big, white southern gardenias that smell incredible, in summer.

Beautiful gardens overlooking Sydney Harbour. If you have time take the free guided walking tour or to save your legs jump on the tram for a small fee.

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
