  • Great location to explore and find shade while running, not to mention the stunning views of the harbour with the Opera House just around the corner- so close!  more »
  • This is a lovely place to visit! Gorgeous plants and views. We have been twice and I'm still not sure we have seen everything! Great venue for NYE at the Calyx.  more »

  • What a beautiful place to visit! There were so many different places and gardens to visit. One visit is not enough. There were lots of people about enjoying themselves. The trail to the Sydney Opera house offered beautiful views of the harbor. Trails were clearly marked and provided estimated walking times. The grounds were well maintained and not a single piece of litter to be found anywhere.
  • Beautiful gardens in the most beautiful city in the world. Great for lunch time runs. The paths are wide enough for runners and walkers to share. Amazing harbour views as well as city views, water views and of course garden views. Shady areas and drinking fountains in the Summer. Open areas with sunlight in winter. Free to use for all.
