Why locals love it

Its roots were laid in ye olde Sydney town; the chlorophyll wonderland was a shock absorber, separating the Governor's house from the hoi polloi of the colony. But they found a way in - rebellious bunch! And even today, when arriving for a picnic or show, there's a feeling of bravado; it's as if you've broken into the grounds of a nobleman's palace

Why you should visit it

It's the city's backyard, covering thirty hectares of prime, waterfront real estate with plants from all corners of the globe. And it's as diverse as the city itself - a series of interconnected gardens rather than one homogeneous whole. So bring a picnic, a frisbee, a book or a bike: the gardens are for everyone.

Special tip

The gardens are open later in the summer months. Check the website for details. For the botany nerds, don't miss the rare and threatened plants.
