An Oasis in the city - a place for all to enjoy
When I first came to Sydney, I wanted to be able to find places to visit that were close by, but also offered something to do. The Royal Botanic Gardens is one of those places.

There is something for everyone here! The sprawling lawns are great for picnics and play; alcoves act as hidden partitions to sit in quiet; trees and gardens add pockets of colour and texture; and the whole landscape flows with the harbour foreshore, which is great for photos! It's a great spot for families and friends, or just to relax for an hour or two on your own, in your lunch break. There are plenty of walking paths, and you will often see joggers running through.

This is a beautiful spot to enjoy. There is much to see and there are many fixed gardens all year round to visit. If you are more interested in enjoying the view, you can even walk through the park through to Mrs Macquarie's Chair.

This is a great location for photographers as well!
