“Beautiful Gardens!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

We walked from the Opera House to our hotel via the Botanic Gardens. The views are spectacular and the care given to these gardens is absolutely impeccable. Don't miss it if you enjoy peace and quiet in the midst of loud and busy!!

“Is it really that big of a walk?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

To be honest, I don't see how you can call this a walk since the Opera House is only like 100 meters away from the entrance to the Botanic Gardens?

However as the Opera House is fantastic and the Botanic Gardens are as well, I guess the tiny bit in between must be called perfect as well ;)

“Best of both”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

The Opera House is well worth a visit and afterwards, a stroll to the Botanic Gardens gives you the best of both. On a fine day, the harbour and city skyline are a beautiful backdrop to the gleaming white of the Opera House and the greenery and seclusion of the gardens. Those still feeling the need to walk can continue to the Art Gallery of New South Wales and then on to Hyde Park and St Mary's Cathedral, the gardens and parks all green oases in the busy city.
