As soon as you venture into the Royal Botanic Gardens, you'll be instantly transported to a lush paradise where over 10,000 different species of plants flourish. Very quickly, you’ll see why this is considered Australia’s most comprehensive botanical library.
Amble through the various sections on your own (there's a garden for cacti, for Chinese species, for New Zealand plants and more) or take one of the guided tours across the forested grounds.
No matter which you choose, you'll be surrounded by cascading flowers, crystal lakes, and every color and texture imaginable. There's even a Children's Garden, complete with climbing rocks and a bamboo forest, along with plenty of places to picnic and grill out.
On a sunny summer day, you'll likely hear an outdoor concert or stumble across a theater performance on the grassy lawns. It’s hard to imagine a more perfect day.
