Royal Botanic Gardens
The Royal Botanic Gardens a veritable oasis of greenery boasts breathtaking views of Sydney Harbour and the city skyline. The gardens were the first area of cultivated land on the Australian continent and are home to The Sydney Tropical Centre with the Pyramid Glasshouse, the Herb Garden, The Fernery, the Rose Garden, a walled Cactus and Succulent Garden and the Oriental Garden. The harbor side of the main pond offers a splendid view that will stay with you forever. This is a great place for picnics or sunbathing, and for spotting an ibis or cockatoo. Hours vary seasonally. Call for further details.
Fasinaging trees here. Had picnic lunch with my our little group including my 78 year old father-in-law underneath a tree with at least an 80 foot spread. We were on one of the higher levels and could see most of Sydney harbor with its myrid of ferry, yacht and boat traffic. Beautiful plants everywhere. AND IT IS ALL FREE!
Make sure to find time for a walk through the Royal Botanic Gardens. No matter what season, he harbour views and native wildlife are well worth the trip. Located next to the heart of the CBD, there is no reason to pass this up.
