Somewhere I read this is a hidden pearl in the middle of Sydney. I could not agree more, it was so lovely to walk through the tranquil gardens. We visited at opening time of 9.30 as nothing else was open. We enjoyed our walk through,...More

Went to visit the gardens in Darling Harbour on the last day of my trip to Sydney before checking out of my hotel. Arrived at 9.30am when then had just opened and was a great time to see the gardens as hardly any people around...More

The entry area and courtyard, cafe area is accessible by wheelchair. Beyond this area there are steps, stepping stones and small hilly sections. The back section is visible from the entry so you could view all the areas, but access only the front section.

I do not think they allow that, but not sure. There is a little spot with tables and chairs, so perhaps they do allow bringing in food, but did not see anyone eating anything there. No places to eat in the gardens... More
I do not think they allow that, but not sure. There is a little spot with tables and chairs, so perhaps they do allow bringing in food, but did not see anyone eating anything there. No places to eat in the gardens themselves, as only a few concrete benches scattered throughout the gardens. There are many restaurants nearby and a huge lawn area outside the gardens.
