This Botanic Garden is all you would expect- and more. Take advantage of a free guided tour by a volunteer. I turned up without knowing that this service was about to start: 10.30 and it really enhanced the experience: full of the history and beginnings...More

We visited St Mary's Cathedral then on to Royal Botanic Gardens. Great place for a walk or jog and a picnic. We came over the weekend, tons of people around.

Wandered through the gardens on a sunny Friday late in June. Very pleasant walk, full of bird life and very well kept gardens. A great place to while away a few hours out of the hussle and bussle of the City. Something for everyone.

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
