The Opera House to the Botanic Gardens Walk, Sydney

(4.9/5 based on 5,000+ reviews on the web)
The Sydney Opera House and Royal Botanic Gardens combine for an unforgettable day of sightseeing, but The Opera House to the Botanic Gardens Walk itself constitutes an important part of both attractions' appeal. You have a handful of options for how to take this stroll, but the 1.5-km (0.9-mi) route tracing Farm Cove is one of the most popular choices. When you reach the other side of the cove, turn around and take a photo of the Sydney Opera House across the blue water with the Sydney Harbour Bridge and city skyline in the background. Put The Opera House to the Botanic Gardens Walk and other Sydney attractions into our Sydney itinerary builder, and watch your holiday take shape.
