Make sure you have drinking water with you as the heat will get to you even in the shade. The The park is as expected full of greenery, easy walking paths and quite relaxing considering you are in the midle of a busy city.

We wandered here after the Botanic Gardens and weren't disappointed. Lovely and peaceful. Fountains and benches aplenty. Close to St. Mary's Cathedral. Various 'zones' of different planting/features makes for interest.

We enjoyed walking through this park near St. Mary's cathedral. Everything is clean (as is all of Sydney). On one of our tours we heard that Hyde Park was one of the first parks established in Sydney.

It's a very nice place to relax in the heart of Sydney. It's huge and has lots of chairs to sit on and large area of greenery to take a nap on.

My husband and I walked through this park twice and could have gone many more times....even went on a rainy day...beautifully cared for with good attractions, think it actually leads down to the Opera House.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
