Amazing place, with big amount of plants and birds. A real oasis in the big city
The Royal Botanic Gardens are an awesome place to go to get away from the craziness of the city! Great place to visit with family or friends
This is a very large Botanical Garden in Sydney, right next to the Opera House. It is said that it was the Governor's back garden. The scenery here is very pleasant, beside the Sydney Opera House, you can see not only the Sydney Bridge, but also the whole Sydney Harbour, where there are many exotic flowers and plants, all kinds of plants can be seen here, and even a greenhouse is very good. It is suggested to start from the New South Wales Museum of Art and run directly from the front door to the back door to the opera house. This is a classic journey, and there is no turning back all the way.
The Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney was established in 1816 under the chairmanship of Macquarie, then Governor. It occupied 24 hectares. It was the first farm in Australia. It was close to the Sydney Opera House and the Central Business District. It was separated from the Sydney Opera House by a narrow bay. Its unique geographical location made the Royal Botanical Garden a must-visit place for tourists. A large number of tropical and subtropical plants, many of which were introduced from abroad during the colonial period, were collected and displayed in the garden. In the park, along the way, I saw all kinds of exotic plants, stepping on the soft and fluffy grassland, the scent of grass is attractive, and the sun shines on everyone's face, which is like the prototype of Utopia. From the Royal Botanical Garden there is the best location for the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. To the north end of the botanical garden is Mrs. Macaulay's stone chair. This is the best place to look at the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge, because here, the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge are lined up, and many postcards are taken there. Sure enough, the sunset is like a beautiful postcard.
The Palace Garden was originally a large Victorian Garden Palace. It was the venue of the 1879-1880 International Exposition held in Sydney. After burning down in 1882, the site became part of the Botanical Garden. The garden features a fountain and a sunken garden, the former for Governor Philip, the latter built in 1938 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the European colonies. In the center is a statue of a Garden Palace that survived, and the surrounding flower beds are planted with various kinds of grass and flowers. The Palm Grove, built in 1851, is one of the most distinctive and historic botanical gardens. More than 140 species of palm plants, including Livistona australis, the most common species in Australia, are collected and displayed. Their young shoots are edible and their leaves can be made into straw hats. Spring is the best season for ornamentation. In addition, you can also see some towering ancient trees, which began to grow from seeds collected by botanists in the field in the 1920s and 1950s. Agathis robusta, planted in 1853, is the largest plant in the botanical garden. Other ancient trees include tea, Ceylon cinnamon and so on. The Fernery is adjacent to the Palm Garden, formerly the Governor's family garden. The tropical, subtropical and temperate ferns native to Australia and around the world are artistically arranged for educational purposes. The recently reformed fine steel structure shading system provides better conditions for growth. The first farm was the area where the first crops of colonial times were cultivated. Now it is divided into 14 parallel planting beds, part of which is still showing the style of the farm at that time, part of which is planted with plants arranged according to families, and the Rhododendron and Begonia are also collected here. The Lower Garden is a reclamation and reclamation area of the 19th century Farm Cove. It formed a series of falls and lakes by damming small streams in the park. Mexican fir and banyan trees were planted on the lakeside. The Tropical Center consists of two very modern buildings, with towers showing tropical plants in Australia and arc-shaped buildings collecting tropical plants outside Australia. The National Herbarium of South Wales is one of the two major Australian Herbarium collections. It mainly collects Australian plants. It has about 1 million specimens, including some collected by Joseph Banks in 1770.
The Royal Botanical Garden of Sydney was built in 1816 and covers an area of 30 hectares. There are 4,000 kinds of plants planted here. It is full of lush flowers all the year round. But this is not the most attractive part of the park, but Mrs. Macaulay's chair on the east side of the park is the place that attracts tourists all over the world, because this place can take a picture of the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge at the same time. When I walked along the Bay and was blocked by the closed notice and barrier, the frustration was self-evident, so the mountain-climbing detour finally took place. Come to this wonderful excitement just want to jump. This was the favorite place of the Governor's wife during the colonial period. For this reason, people cut stones here to make a bench. Now people do not remember the name of the bay, because Mrs. Macaulay's chair has replaced it. (The last photo is Mrs. Macaulay's chair)
I heard that the Royal Botanical Garden of Sydney was originally the first farm in Australia. It was built by the Governor at that time. It was a visionary Governor. I think many of them are tropical and subtropical plants. Plant signs provide historical information collected by plants, and the distinctive gardens are a portrayal of the history of botanical gardens. After visiting the palace gardens and fern botanical areas in the garden, we drank coffee in the coffee shop in front of a lake in the park. The leisure time was very intoxicating.
Greenland stubble, entrance in the west of a small circular island, the gate is not too obvious, after entering a small square similar to the door ball, you will see students playing, there are large local trees, basically nothing to play, you can always lie on the lawn reading or sleeping, forget how many distant there are a few free-range parrots. It attracts local people and tourists to rest in the park. It is only a narrow bay away from the Sydney Opera House. The Sydney City Government is also in the Botanical Garden. Mrs. Macaulay's stone chair is located in the bay of the park. It is the best place to see the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge.
The Royal Botanical Garden of Sydney is located in the northwest corner of downtown Sydney. It can take a bus to the park directly. The famous Mrs. Macaulay's chair is in the corner of the park. It is the best view to see the Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House at the same time. The whole botanical garden is very green and suitable for walking. Many local people come to run and ride, full of vitality. There's also a boot swimming club at the entrance to the park. This free park is a must for Sydney.
