Royal Botanic Gardens :: First Look

Knowing that we had a show to watch at the Sydney Opera House around lunchtime made knowing what to do during the morning and especially, breakfast, easy. Since the Sydney Opera House is located north of the Royal Botanic Gardens, we took a leisurely stroll from our place through Hyde Park and through the gardens to have breakfast before catching the show with our friends.

The Royal Botanic Garden in Sydney opened back in 1816 and is one of the most important historic botanical institutions in the world. It is open every day of the year and is free to everybody. Its location alone on Sydney Harbour and being close to Sydney's CBD, the Sydney Opera House ensures that it is one of the most visited attractions in Sydney.

Below are some photos from our stroll through The Domain on Art Gallery Road, which turns into Mrs Macquaries Road as you cross the bridge into the Gardens.

After breakfast, we took a stroll to The Calyx, where they were having a free floral display until August 20th and just had enough time to walk from there to the opera house. More on The Calyx on another post for another day.
