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.

You’ll discover sculptures all the way from Mrs Macquarie’s Chair to that other great modern work of art: the Sydney Opera House.

For anyone who love nature should cross this park which has a somewhat oriental air, and at the end of the park you will find the opera house of Sydney. Sydney opera we also recommend visiting at night for good pictures!
