The Sydney Opera House and Royal Botanic Gardens combine for an unforgettable day of sightseeing, but The Opera House to the Botanic Gardens Walk itself constitutes an important part of both attractions' appeal. You have a handful of options for how to take this stroll, but the 1.5-km (0.9-mi) route tracing Farm Cove is one of the most popular choices. When you reach the other side of the cove, turn around and take a photo of the Sydney Opera House across the blue water with the Sydney Harbour Bridge and city skyline in the background.

  • One of the best walks you can do in Sydney - it’s a must see area (of course!) but perhaps a little unknown. And if you are a local and you haven’t done it - shame on you!! Get out there now .....  more »
  • Looking for the perfect shot of the Sydney Opera House minus the crowds...go no further. Just a couple minutes walk from the Opera House and a good way to enter the Botanical Gardens.  more »
