Hyde Park was as good as ever during our recent visit to Sydney. It was fairly mild winter weather and ideal for perambulation. The ibises were out in force scouring the rubbish bins as well as exhibiting more attractive behavioural traits.

This park is centrally located near the Royal Botanic Gardens, Circular Quay, and many other sites. It's nice to walk or run through and is very clean. There are cool monuments/statutes and fountains to take pictures in front of. Bring a picnic or just walk...More

One of best attributes is size, alongside CBD so very accessible but large enough to enjoy a park atmosphere of trees and gardens and just relax

It was actually better looking at this park from above (meaning the Observation Deck of the Sydney Tower Eye just about a 10-minute walk away) than seeing it on the ground which "mostly" is just a tree-lined pathway with a fountain at about halfway (a...More

One of the most serene and cleanest park we've visited. The greenery was lush, park was well maintained and lies right at the heart of the city. Good attraction for all esp for first timers. We even saw people playing with life-sized chess pieces. The...More

All of the parks in Sydney are absolutely beautiful. They are manicured immaculately with great eye appeal. The foliage is breathtaking. People are running, jogging, walking, on the lawn having lunch (picnic style), or just taking in the beauty of the surroundings. Actually I enjoyed...More

Right across the street from our hotel, we enjoyed a stroll in this oasis of green space. Uncrowded on a mid afternoon sunny late winter day.

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
