Royal Botanic Gardens
The Royal Botanic Gardens, a veritable oasis of greenery, boasts breath-taking views of Sydney Harbour and the city skyline. The gardens were the first area of cultivated land on the Australian continent and are home to The Sydney Tropical Centre with the Pyramid Glasshouse, the Herb Garden, The Fernery, the Rose Garden, a walled Cactus and Succulent Garden and, the latest addition, the Oriental Garden. This is a great place for picnics or sunbathing, and for spotting an ibis or cockatoo.
The Botanical Gardens are beautiful. The green trees and soft grass make this stroll magical. There are plenty of benches where you can rest, enjoy the views and steal a kiss from your loved one.
Do not miss a romantic stroll in the gardens.
The fruit bats are an incredible sight.**Don't forget to look up.
From the signs that invite you to walk on the grass, to the absolute joy of sitting under a tree having a picnic while watching the harbor activity, this is a must see. All of this natural beauty made available to the world for free is amazing.
The greatest thing about the RBG was the quiet and peace one felt while walking the grounds. There is so much going on in Sydney, and anyone will tell you of the laid back attitude of the Sydneysiders. That is why the RBG belongs in Sydney - they are a quiet and calm in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the downtown lifestyle.
I LOVED EVERY MOMENT OF IT, IT WAS A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE AND I CANT WAIT TO GO BACK TO MY SMALL TOWN OF GLADSTONE AND TELL ALL OF MY FRIENDS ABOU IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
P.S. YOU HAVE TO GO TO THE BOTANIC GARDENS!!!!!!!!!!
The RBG had the best views of the harbor and Opera House. It was so beautiful I went back two mornings in a row! I esp. enjoyed the rainforest walk and the Wollemi pine. The Tropical House was under refurbishment when we went so we only got to see a small part but the orchids and carnivorous plants we did see were great.
I loved the comfortable atmosphere, it did not feel like you were in a big city. I recommend bringing your own water on a hot day and a blanket or towel to sit on to enjoy the views and rest while walking the enormous park. We were there in the heat, so water was a must, but hard to find once in the park. Suggest sitting near the pavillion, the fox bats just hang out, and that is a sight to see!
This was a great place to see beautiful gardens and some wildlife such as birds and bats. The flowers, plants, fountains, and lake were beautiful also. It's fairly large, so if you want to see it all, allow for plenty of time.
I first went there when i was 20 with a group of friends and our boyfriends. MY boyfriend and I had a pinic there where he proposed to me there.
Two years later we got married there and on the exact same day he proposed to me two years later.
Now My husband and I and a group of friends go back there every year at the same time and on the 17th of may each year my boyfriend and I go to the gardens and have a pinic as we did 3 years earlier where he proposed.
