Royal Botanic Gardens

Royal Botanic Gardens is an oasis of 30 hectares in the heart of the city. Established in 1816, it is the oldest scientific institution in the country and home to an outstanding collection of plants from Australia and overseas. The gardens occupy one of Sydney's most spectacular locations, affording beautiful views of the harbor and of the Sydney Opera House.

In addition to flowers, trees, and broad lawns to relax in while enjoying the view, the gardens also play host to a number of local Australian birds, as well as a large colony of housecat-sized flying foxes.

Getting there

From Circular Quay station, walk toward the Sydney Opera House. You can cut through the stairway about halfway along the row of cafes, or walk all the way to the opera house and then continue another couple minutes along the shoreline.
