Spread over 30 hectares next to Circular quay, there is no better place to spend a sunny day than in the Royal Botanical Gardens.
With photo-perfect views of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, this green sanctuary among the city skyscrapers, accessorised with spectacular flora, beautiful water features, and an impossibly picturesque harbour backdrop is the ultimate spot for a picnic.
With plenty of open lawn, large tree canopy for shade, nearby facilities and easy transport, this is where friends and families come to unfurl a blanket, open up the Tupperware, pour refreshing drinks, and enjoy one of Sydney’s treasures.
