The Royal Botanic Gardens are located very close to the Sydney Opera House. It’s amazing because the gardens are filling an area of land between the Harbour and the eastern part of the central business area.

You can come across a great diversity of plants – from huge trees, putting aside a wonderful shade to palms, roses and ferns. There’s a gorgeous view of the Harbour from the top of the hill, so you can go there and enjoy it.

The Gardens can be accessed by bus, train or ferry. You can see people walking around the Harbourfront at the lower part of the gardens during lunchtime or jogging in the mornings as this place is full of people daily till sunset when it closes. Walking through the gardens and along the seawall is a great way to relax in Sydney.
