Summer in Sydney has a golden ticket evening event that Sydney offers on the harbour. Memorable iconic scenes that will remain in your memory, -memories that you will live off. Even if you are a local, the shiny diamond in the summertime crown is the St George Cinema. The stage is set... a big screen raises from above the harbour,... More

You simply put your best foot forward and the Opera House to the Botanic Gardens Walk will do the rest! Wheelchair and baby pusher friendly (no bikes/skates or skateboards allowed in the Botanic Gardens). Grab your camera; there is a lust worthy image with every step on this mainly flat (hhmm - there are a couple of inclines but these... More

There is nothing better than strolling through the Botanic Gradens from the Opera House in summer...there is always something on - either a Wind in the Willows production or the Open Air Cinema at Mrs Macquarie's Chair or just bring a picnic and enjoy the view.

Walking around past the Opera House and on to the Botanical Gardens is a walk that shouldn't be missed. Give yourself enough time to loiter around the Opera House (lots of great places to eat or enjoy coffee/glass of wine), and then stroll around Farm Cove through the lower section of the Botanical Gardens and around to Mrs Macquarie's Chair....

Stroll from the Opera House round to the botanic gardens with the harbour and bay on your left and you get a perfect impression of all that is good about Sydney. Located in the middle if the city the harbour sparkles on your left and to your right the gardens stretch up to the CBD with an extensive show of... More

We walked this path the last morning we were in Sydney, which made it all the more difficult to leave! GORGEOUS views and path. Soak in the harbour, gardens and views, a fabulous overview. I am amazed how relatively pristine Sydney has kept it's harbour and the surroundings. Wonderful.

Easy, level, wide paths take you from the Opera House and Circular Quay around to the Botanic Gardens. All of it stunning and the walk allows you to take it in at your leisure. Wheelchair and buggy friendly too. The Gardens are great. Not as much as Melbourne's but still very good indeed.

Not usually one to spend hours exploring gardens on holiday but really enjoyed these. We took a ride on the miniature train - the Choo Choo Express. This then highlighted the best places to go back and explore further on foot.

The Opera House and the Botanical Gardens are attractions worth visiting in their own right, so it's perfect that you can enjoy this walk between them. A tip: if you walk all the way out to Mrs Macquarie's Chair, you can head back 'inland' and you'll find yourself at the Art Gallery of New South Wales - which is free... More

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.
