How to see the Royal Botanic Gardens the easy way
Our holiday in New South Wales
The Royal Botanic Gardens in the heart of Sydney are quite extensive. These beautiful gardens are an excellent place to visit for a relaxing walk or picnic while in Sydney. The gardens cover about 30 hectares and for those who tire easily there is a great service. You can take a tour through the gardens on the trackless train (see photo above). These run every twenty minutes from the Opera House and cover a large part of the gardens. It stops several times along the way. There is a charge for this service.
Guided walks, however, are free. These are conducted daily (currently 10:30am). The restaurant and cafe is an excellent place to buy food and drinks and recover from all that walking. The Gardens Shop has an excellent range of plant related items for sale.
