  • Highly recommended esp. when the weather is sunny and cool. Gorgeous garden by the water with great view of the opera house and harbour bridge. Walk a bit east of the gardens and you come face to face with an aircraft carrier. How cool is that? I esp. enjoyed the succulent gardens. Many wild cockatoos live there so that’s a bonus sight for me.
  • What a pleasure to see the water view sights of Sydney from this spectacular location! The scenic garden paths appear endless, and it is a beautiful educational tour with excellent signage at every corner of this well-maintained national treasure. Whether you want to watch the water traffic, admire the Sydney Harbour and Opera House, laze in the sun reading a book on the grass, or watch flocks of cockatoos, it is all there. Some cafes and special exhibitions are scattered around the gardens, creating a relaxing oasis near a bustling city.
