Top ways to experience The Opera House to the Botanic Gardens Walk and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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 or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
How to get there

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a fantastic walk for anyone who wants to see the top attractions but also have a lovely walk. Lots of toilets/cafes/food kiosks on the way. And plenty of benches to rest on.

Had a wonderful walk today. Took this journey on my own and cannot say enough about it. Beautiful scenery, best photo opportunities and lots of greenery. Sea breeze and plenty of places to sit and rest and take photos. Then around the last bend there it is Sydney opera house and bridge. Don’t miss this.

Nice walk from round the bridge and the rocks to circular quay onto the opera house and into the gardens you see the best bits of Sydney in one walk

if you can make only one walk in Sydney, this is the one to do! Great views of the bridge and opera house, trailing along the harbor, and entering into the Royal Botanic Garden with its huge trees and relaxing greenspaces.

We walk on the path beside the waters, taking us about 10mins to reach a viewpoint facing opera house with harbour bridge behind. Nice spot to take photos of 2 Iconic landmarks of Sydney. Botanic garden very nice to walk and great to see people sitting around to enjoy the serenity.

This walk ticks all the boxes for an enjoyable walk of the harbour, peaceful, scenic, and plenty of room, and only walkers, no bikes permitted in the gardens. Allow plenty of time.

The Botanic Gardens are an absolute must visit. Beautiful, serene, fantastic specimens. You will love walking around and enjoying the location by the harbour and Opera House. It is an oasis in the city.

Easy walk with awesome views and beautiful gardens. The gardens are a lovely place to take time out of the busy city. The cafe at the gardens is expensive for what's offered.

We did the walk from the Botanical Gardens to the Opera House as part of a much longer trek starting in Kings Cross and walking down to the military harbour in Jerremon Bay, past the ships and Finger Wharf (worth a visit inside), then up to Mrs Macquarie's road and the headland by Sydney Harbour and Wooloomooloo Bay. You walk past Mrs Macquarie's chair and get the views of the Opera House, Bridge and Sydney from Farm Cove as you walk back round from the Botanical Gardens. It's a good long 5 miles and we did it in the rain. Brilliant way to see some great views though.
