“An Oasis in a Metropolis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2013

This is a great activity whether you have just stepped off the plane and need to begin fighting jet-lag, or if you need a break from the pressures of the downtown area. My only advice is don't rush it. Take some time to practice your photography skills, as you'll be pressed to find greater beauty in the area.

“A nice walk before your show starts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2013

Its a fair distance between the Circular Quay central area to the Opera House, it's quite nice to take the time to walk to the Botanics Garden and have a walk around. We went there in between time before our show starts in the evening, quite a nice view and a few attractions to notice in the Botanics Garden.

One thing to note is the gate for the garden closes quite early though, they shuts off at around 5.30pm, so do go there a little earlier, I think once you are in, you are able to stay in there a little after the gate closing time, the exit gate should be open all the time, just that the gate to enter has a time limit (we didn't try though, so.. no guarantee =P, well we didn't see any staff of management the whole time there)

“Fantastic venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2013

We were lucky enough to be able to see Mandy Patinkin and Nathan Gunn perform in the Opera House. What a marvelous venue (and a great performance).

“Where else in the World!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

One can witness grandeur in building and botanic architecture in 1 hour of a stroll. Where else in the world could one enjoy the splendor of Sydney harbor together with brilliant human creativity?
