We had a relaxing walk taking in some great views as we walked to the gardens. It is a very spacious area and it is a relaxing walk

My first glimpse of the Opera House came from the walkway near MacQuarie Point. A nice wide walk-way with stunning sights of the harbour and the Opera House. Each curve of the walk-way offered another angle of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge.

We really had a good day for our walk along there foreshore. The sun shone, the harbour waters sparkled and the flowers bobbed jauntily from their beds. It was fantastic doing this with a large tour group of Hong Kong students!

Omg, what a view on Sydney along the boardwalk..and what an ending - the botanical gardens, such an oasis of peace and rest. Perfect hangout on a good day with family and friends!

I loved the route - ran it a few times - so much to see along this stretch of coast and the gardens were well maintained and beautiful. Some sections in the gardens have hills but the majority of the route was flat.

You should be able to do all that in the morning. There are tours of the opera house you might not have time for if you want to wander around the gardens longer - but they are all right in the same place, so if you have an... More

April in Sydney is Autumn : it's warm but not as hot as in the summer months. Very nice for walking about. Expect daytime temperatures around 20°C (68°F) cooling down at night to 15°C (58°F) .
