The gardens are in the middle of the city and right next to the ocean. When you walk to the end of the garden to Mrs. Macquaries point you can the best views of the Sydney harbor bridge and the Sydney opera house together.

Beautiful views of the harbour, lush gardens and scenery, a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

With many winding paths along lovely trees, plants, vegetation and the harbor, you can walk or run until you drop. There are also multiple benches to rest on and play areas for children to play. The views are varied and interesting. Very colorful flowers, the opera house, and the harbor bridge can be seen from the paths. Don't rush through this area. It is lovely.

A lovely gardens to while away half a day, they actually encourage you to touch the plants and trees, picnic on the grass and take in the views. Plenty of birds and the walkways are well signposted with toilets free water stops and great views of the city skyline and harbour, take a picnic and enjoy the gardens.
