This delightful garden on Sydney Harbour contains sculptures from historical statues to modern works by Bronwyn Oliver, Paul Selwood, and Denmark’s Keld Moseholm. Don’t miss the stunning ‘Time and Tide’ by May Barrie: a monolithic rock carved in such a natural way that many people think it’s just a rock. It’s one of my favourite stone sculptures in the world. It’s handy to park your car on Mrs Macquaries Road and then walk through the gardens. You’ll discover sculptures all the way from Mrs Macquarie’s Chair to that other great modern work of art: the Sydney Opera House.
Sydney's stunning botanic gardens are a great way to reach the Opera House and provide great views of both the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

“A great place to see specific exhibitions or the general collection, the Art Gallery of NSW is a great place to visit if you are an art lover.”
“If modern art is your bag, see this museum. You can walk there in 40 minutes or if you want to do a gallery day, it’s a 20 minutes walk to the Art Gallery of NSW in the morning and a further 20 minutes’ walk to MCA in the afternoon. Afterwards you might have a drink at one of the many watering holes in The Rocks.”
“Australia’s oldest park is also one of its most well-known. Hyde Park offers 16 hectares of wide open space in the heart of central Sydney.”
