Royal Botanic Gardens
Back to nature
The gardens are superb for picnics, but there’s so much more on offer here. Attractions include the Wollemi pine, one of the world’s rarest plants. Visit the glass pyramid Tropical Centre, for an extra cost (budget), to see, smell and touch exotic plants, and don’t miss the sensory fountain and sundial at the aromatic Herb Garden.
