We planned to do this walk on our first day in Sydney. But the weather wasn't friendly that day, so we postponed until the day after. We were quite lucky that the weather was fine that morning. We started the walk from Opera House, and looping around it. We could see this majestic structure from many different angles. Then we... More

If you enjoy walking or strolling, this is a wonderful walk to take. It goes along the harbor, but you can also stray off the path to check out the plant life, sit on a bench and watch people.

As a born & bred Sydneysider I've done this walk more times than I can count. It is an easy flat walk that takes in some of the most iconic Sydney sights. Take a camera and hat - in summer it is hot and lots of the walk offers no sun protection. Avoid eating around Circular Quay - lots of... More

Feel healthy and alive as you walk this beautiful path from the Opera House to the Botanical Gardens. Easy, flat and paved, surrounded by beautiful gardens on one side and the magnificent Sydney harbour on the other. Walk alone to clear your mind and observe the beauty, walk with a friend or put on your joggers and join the multitudes... More

Many visitors to Sydney, Australia are not aware and never visit the beautiful Botanical Gardens. There are numerous exotic and native species set on acres of cultured lawns right next to the Sydney Opera House and CBD. If you stand on the Opera House steps the Gardens are right behind you or when facing the Sydney Harbour bridge at Circular... More

This walk although not long, is a beautiful meander with Farm Cove right at the north of you, Sydney city to the south, the Opera House to the west and the Botanical Gardens in the middle. I noted much bird life as well in the Gardens. Whilst I have been to other gardens which are very good, I cannot recall... More
