  • A nice and spaced out garden for a relaxing walk. Worth a visit after visiting the Opera House as they are just next to each other. Although nice, it felt like a huge park unlike the Botanic Gardens.....  more

  • I couldn't stop myself for coming here again and again. This garden have it's own charisma. In every corner you would found a little gem. Perfect place to breath and take a small gateway from city. You can smell the fresh breeze while enjoying sunset over Sydney Opera House. It so refreshing and calming.
  • Lovely botanical garden. It has a lot of native Australian plants and definitely well maintained. It is situated at a very conviennent location next to the circular quay, the art gallery of new south whales near the ferry and train station. It is big and lots of lovely locations to have a run, walk, a workout and picnic. They also have a nice cafe/restaurant inside the garden. Definitely recommend a visit.
  • Beautiful green lush gardens with nice views of the waterfront and skyline. There are a range of trails to walk on, a lot of open space to sit down on, and there are a couple of places to eat and drink in the complex. However I have to say, I think the botanic gardens in Melbourne are even better!
  • I attended a Bush Foods Morning tea, and cannot speak highly enough of the event. I felt privileged to receive such knowledge, and was impressed with how much our local flora has to offer us. The morning tea was tasty, generous and the tea extremely refreshing. I will be booking in again in the future.
  • Lovely gardens right in the middle of the city. But you wouldn't know it because you are in a world of your own amongst the plants and wildlife. Not many cities can say they have such a facility for the public to enjoy right at their doorstep. Come here for a relaxing day and just to escape the hustle and bustle of the city sounds.
