Recently visited Sydney and stayed within a 5 minute walk from the Opera House and Botanical Gardens. Lovely places to while away the hours with magnificent views of the Sydney skyline and Harbour.

Start at the Opera House and take the train to the gardens to get a vast panoramic view of the gardens with numerous stopping points. Its virtually impossible to do this all by foot.

After visiting the Opera House the walk to the gardens is very pleasant. It is easy for all fitness levels and gives you a chance to see other aspects of Sydney Harbour.

You leave the magnificent building that is the Sydney Opera house and you follow the path that borders the harbour. There is much to see with ferries scurrying to and fro , the Naval dockyard and of course the magnificent Botanic gardens . A great way to get fresh air
