The Sydney Opera House and Royal Botanic Gardens combine for an unforgettable day of sightseeing, but The Opera House to the Botanic Gardens Walk itself constitutes an important part of both attractions' appeal. You have a handful of options for how to take this stroll, but the 1.5-km (0.9-mi) route tracing Farm Cove is one of the most popular choices.

  • These gardens are sublime it is impossible to visit Sydney without going there! I highly recommend they're beautiful and they offer splendid views of the bridge and the Opera House for some great photos. It's quiet soothing is a paradisiacal place of Sydney with many plants and trees for lovers of plants and nature is really great!
