Sydney’s botanic gardens

Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens boast an exceptional location: east of the Opera House and overlooking the Harbour Bridge. The gardens offer a beautiful nature setting. Nearby you will also find Farm Cove, the first farm on Australian soil. This is a wonderful spot for a relaxing outing and to learn more about Australian flora.

Locals love to walk and picnic in these gardens. A large network of walking trails and lawns offer plenty of room for these activities. Daily guided tours inform visitors about the large variety of species and the importance of these plants for Australia’s ecosystems. One part of the garden is dedicated to rare and endangered plant species from around the world. One of the species on display is the recently rediscovered Wollemi-pine. A rich history and growing collection of art make the gardens a wonderful attraction. The path that runs along the spectacular Sydney Harbour (in the direction of Mrs Macquarie's Chair) is particularly beautiful around sunset for the best views across the water.
