Start at the harbour. Explore the Opera House and then keep going round the bay to the botanic garden. Great views as you walk and the gardens are great.

The views, the flora, the fauna, and the people. What a great way to spend a morning or afternoon (a bit toasty during mid-day).

Right along the Harbour: well traveled pathways. Gardens are well done; could use a bit more maintenance and labeling of trees and plants .

Enjoyed a beautiful day in Sydney causally strolling around the botanical gardens. The paths are clearly marked to get to the Opera house, the different exhibits that are on and Mrs. Macquarie's chair.

Great scenic views for a walk and to enjoy the sunshine while sitting in the park. The walk itself along the river is romantic in the evenings and couples should avail of this opportunity while in Sydney.

Beautiful location. Beautiful views. Large waterfront park in great location. Close to everything. Watch the ferries, yachts and people. People friendly and very clean. You can walk for miles. The day we were there we watched a wedding in the park.

If you go on the Opera house web site it will give you all the shows that are currently on. If you are staying in a hotel the reception or concierge will be able to help you.

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) .
