What people are saying:

The Royal Botanic Garden of Sydney (Sydney'sRoyalBotanicGardens), an area of 30 hectares, was established in 1816 under the auspices of the then Governor Macquarie, next to the Sydney Opera House and the Central Business District. "The Royal Botanic Gardens, a major tourist attraction in Sydney, was a large Victorian garden palace with a more distinctive feature of memorial fountains and sinking gardens, and a statue of the garden palace surviving in the center." A variety of plants are grown in the surrounding flower beds. The fern area, adjacent to the palm garden, is artfully arranged for educational purposes for ferns native to Australia and the tropical, subtropical and temperate regions of the world. The recently revamped beautiful steel shading system provides better conditions for growth. It is divided into 14 parallel planting beds, part of which is still a display of the farm style, part of which is planted with family-appointed plants, and the azaleas and the autumn sea anemones are also collected here.
