Well worth a visit and although you pay for the train, entrance to The Gardens is free. Make sure you walk to Mrs Macquaries chair.

When you are in this garden, you feel you're in paradise, especially when it coincides with some wedding couples taking photos.

One of the things I love about Australia is that most major capitol cities have parks within easy access of the CBD, and Sydney is no exception. With the Royal Botanic Gardens occupying some prime harbourside real estate it offers the visitors some great vantage...More

75 acres of trees, plants, flowers, etc, etc. The gardens have a multitude of walks bur you'd never see the whole garden in one day. We decided to take the choochoo express which is a small train that takes you around some of the gardens...More

Lovely manicured gardens. Lot's of flowers and fountains and just hiddenaway quiet spots where you can breathe some fresh air and enjoy the silence.

I was surprised to find the limited amount of animals to view. Perhaps the product of the number of animals on the endangered list. Staff very friendly and helpful. Views of the opera house and bridge spectacular.

Lovely gardens, no entrance fee. Plenty of places to sit and relax with some excellent views, not only of the gardens and wildlife, but also of Sydney itself. Look out for the eels in the pond- some are huge. Good cafe.

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
