We actually walk from the garden to the opera house. The walk is short and enjoyable. You can get a nice view of the harbour.

In a city of beauty this may be the greatest of all its attractions. The gardens pathways are perfect for a jog or walk down to the picturesque Sdney Harbor.

Love this walk so easy and so much to see. Very relaxing, go as far as you want. We went all the way to Woolloomooloo and back around into the gardens. Not strenuous, very enjoyable.

When the weather is nice, this would be a very nice walk. The road was not very busy and although it was quite a short walk, the scenery along the way was enough to keep you pleasantly entertained.

This is a very impressive location and a great place to see. It is in a very nice location and the building is a very high class building. Please put that on your list to see.

Lovely gardens to walk through, if you have young children there is a cute little road train you can go on for a few dollars, nice view over the bay too.

Anyone visiting Sydney will be visiting the Opera House for sure. But don't forget to also visit the Botanic Gardens. When you are outside of the Opera House entrance, walk down the long set of steps and bear left and you will quickly come to...More

If you go on the Opera house web site it will give you all the shows that are currently on. If you are staying in a hotel the reception or concierge will be able to help you.

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) .
