"Circular Quay, Opera House, Botanic gardens" Walks Tip by SydneyGal

Walks, Sydney: 25 reviews and 29 photos


Favorite thing: Kill a couple of hours by taking a walk from Circular Quay, around the Opera House and the Botanic Gardens. Beautiful Gardens, great photo opportunities around here. You could lie in the gardens for a few hours and bask in the sun (as many people do). Walk all the way up to Mrs Macquaries Chair (pic left), a carved rock ledge seat where Elizabeth Macquarie, the Governor?s wife, liked to sit and watch the harbour. Harbour panorama from here.
