Feel miles away in the middle of Sydney’s bustling city
Sometimes it can be hard to find things to do in Sydney that are a little different. The city offers a number of great shopping venues, restaurants and world-class architecture - but what about the natural attractions? You don’t have to travel out of the city to find a slice of the native Australian environment. Hidden away in the heart of the city are gardens filled with native plants and animals you won’t find anywhere else in Sydney. Sydney’s Botanical Gardens first opened in the early 1800s and has since grown to become one of the most beautiful and historical Sydney attractions.
Surround yourself with some of the oldest natural landscape in all of Sydney and feel miles away. Overlooking the Opera House and Sydney Harbour, you’ll find yourself in the heart of Sydney’s major attractions. Sydney is one of the busiest cities in the world but you can’t tell from within the peaceful serenity of the gardens. Relax on your picnic blanket and sip on delicious wine with your date. Enjoy the privacy of the garden and the company of your date amidst Sydney’s beautiful nature.
Return to nature without ever leaving the city
Pack your picnic food and picnic blanket and head outdoors for a romantic lunch date with your partner. The botanic gardens restaurant and cafe kiosk is available for those of you who don’t want the burden of packing your own lunch. Enjoy wholesome and tasty treats made fresh at the restaurant daily or try something sweet and special at the cafe. Come for the food and stay for the views of the garden’s parks.
Retreat to nature and enjoy your lunch with views of the harbour’s infamous water, bush covered headlands, ponds and natural gardens blooming with some of the most beautiful flowers in the city. Watch the water as ferries make their way across from Circular Quay to Manly, spot a glimpse of Taronga Zoo across the water and marvel at the view of Kirribilli House. It will be easy to lose yourself in the peaceful surroundings of the gardens.
Accessible via every mode of transport in the city, including ferries, Sydney’s Botanical Gardens are a great place to escape to from the madness of the city. Try something different and relax by the waterside while you and your partner get cosy on the picnic blanket.
The gardens are open late in Spring and Summer, head over to catch the sun set across the harbour in the evening and enjoy your picnic meal in twilight.
