We wandered here after the Botanic Gardens and weren't disappointed. Lovely and peaceful. Fountains and benches aplenty. Close to St. Mary's Cathedral. Various 'zones' of different planting/features makes for interest.

We enjoyed walking through this park near St. Mary's cathedral. Everything is clean (as is all of Sydney). On one of our tours we heard that Hyde Park was one of the first parks established in Sydney.

It's a very nice place to relax in the heart of Sydney. It's huge and has lots of chairs to sit on and large area of greenery to take a nap on. BUT be prepared - there are soooooooooooo many flies!!!!! Sorry to say that but I just cannot allow myself to sleep with flies and eat with flies...... I... More

My husband and I walked through this park twice and could have gone many more times....even went on a rainy day...beautifully cared for with good attractions, think it actually leads down to the Opera House.

Forget about the shopping districts nearby for the time being and the busy bustling city with high vehicle and human traffic. A walk around the Hyde Park is a de-stressing exercise as one will be able to enjoy some peace and tranquility with lots of greenery (trees, grasses, flowers, plants) all over the place. One can sit at the benches,... 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.
