A tranquil oasis amid the hustle and bustle of the city, the Royal Botanic Garden lies a short and scenic stroll along the waterfront from the Sydney Opera House. The gardens were established in 1816 and encompass 30 hectares of themed gardens with towering trees, palm groves, orchids, ferns, and flocks of fruit bats. Visiting the gardens is one of the many wonderful things to do in Sydney for free. Among the highlights are the Palace Rose Garden, which includes some 1800 roses, and the Glasshouse Latitude 23 and Fernery, brimming with tropical foliage, begonias, and orchids. After exploring the gardens, you can relax at the café or restaurants, or enjoy a hillside picnic with beautiful harbor views. While you’re visiting the gardens, you can enjoy views of Government House, the official residence of the governor of New South Wales.
