Of course, The Central Park in NY has very special place in my heart, but I also loved the time I spend in this botanic Garden and surrounding as well. You can see the high-rise buildings but when you walk around this gorgeous place you...More

Our favourite walk was from the Royal Botanic Garden. That way you get to enjoy different perspectives of the opera, from far to near. The walk is pleasant and offers many beautiful photo spots.

You get fantastic views of the Opera, Harbour bridge and CBD along this walk. Plus some lovely trees from the Botanic gardens.

I did both opera house and botanical garden walking tour my last afternoon in Sydney. Fun exercise, it's a big botanical garden. Not sure how far I walked but considerable distance. Walking around the opera house and then through the gardens is a moderate hike...More

The walk is not too long, and there's great views of the Opera House, harbor, and botanic gardens. Make sure to make it all the way from the Opera House to Mrs. Macquarie's Chair in the botanic gardens.

Great view of the opera house, bridge and harbour as you walk. Just watch the time the gates close as you need to get out of the botanical gardens before closing time!

We enjoyed a peaceful and scenic walk from the Opera House steps along the harbours edge to the Botanic Gardens. It was an easy walk and not strenuous. We plan to return and take the grand children.

You should be able to do all that in the morning. There are tours of the opera house you might not have time for if you want to wander around the gardens longer - but they are all right in the same place, so if you have an... More

April in Sydney is Autumn : it's warm but not as hot as in the summer months. Very nice for walking about. Expect daytime temperatures around 20°C (68°F) cooling down at night to 15°C (58°F) .
