Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney
Our holiday in New South Wales
The Royal Botanic Gardens in the heart of Sydney are a mere ten minute walk from the CBD (depending on where you start your walk of course). They are extremely accessible from the city. As a consequence many people come to the gardens to relax from the hustle of the city. The large artificial ponds in the middle of the park are ideal for a time of relaxation, whether that is for five minutes or an hour or more.
During our recent visit my wife spent a little extra time in the Gardens Shop. During this time I wandered down past the Restaurant and Cafe to the small lakes. I wanted to see if there were any birds worth photographing there. I was drawn instead to the relaxing scene shown in these photos.
