“Lovely Gardens, great cafe”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

The botanic gardens are free, and very peaceful even though they are so close to the hussle and bustle of Syndey Centre

“Attractive spot”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

Grab a map & follow the signs posted throughout. Brilliant array of various gardens. Hive of activity from people playing football to lazing around reading a book to having a picnic in the park.

“Lovely garden!”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

The garden is very nice, especially when you like to see some special birds. The birds are extremely social eating from your hand. Great for children!

“Lovely Park-like Setting”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

Loved the overall feel of this botanic garden as much giant park with labeled specimens as rigid, structured gardens; I came here 3 times in a 7 day stay. I was 10-15 minutes from my hotel and so pleasurable I just kept going back. You may be disappointed if looking for one of those gardens with overly structured spaces and labels. While I found most of the areas I visited well labeled, there was a fair amount of plants left unlabeled. If you freak out easily, beware the fruit bat colony that likes to roost in the trees near the gift shop. For the uninitiated, they are a bit much - albeit completely harmless.
