The Botanical gardens sit right next to the Sydney Opera House. Circular Quay, Sydney’s main transport station, is the best way to get there via train, bus, boat or ferry. There are also some other wharves if you’re approaching from the east.
If you’re spending a day at the Royal Botanical Gardens, there’s plenty to keep you entertained during the day with seventeen themed gardens, eateries, a music venue and an open-air cinema in the grounds. Finished soaking up the beauty of the Gardens? You’re right in the centre of Sydney so you won’t have to go far in any direction to find something to do. The world-famous Opera House is a short amble away. There’s also the Sydney Observatory, a multitude of museums and art galleries and the Sydney Tower Eye very nearby. Not to mention all the shops, bars and restaurants of the CBD.
