The Royal Botanic Gardens
The Royal Botanic Gardens are located south of the Sydney Harbour, just a short walk east from the Sydney Opera House. There are three major botanical gardens open to the public in Sydney of which the Royal Gardens are most centrally located. Australia’s oldest scientific institution was established in 1816 at the site of Australia’s first vegetable patch. It features over a million specimens, spread over more than 30 hectares in area, arranged in theme collections. Within the gardens visitors will find the Herb Garden, the Fernery, a formal Rose Garden, Succulent Garden, as well as an Oriental Garden and a special section with rare and threatened plants of the world. The gardens are also a home to the Sydney Tropical Centre. The gardens offer guided walks every day at 10.30am, except on public holidays, as well as a scenic tour by trackless train. Wheelchair access is provided, except along steep paths and in stepped areas. Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney are open to the public at 6.30 am throughout the year, except on Christmas Day and Good Friday. Entry to the gardens is free.
The Rocks is the name given to the oldest area of Sydney which is located at the Sydney end of the Harbour Bridge between the bridge and Circular Quay. It was once the area inhabited by poor dock-workers and ex-convicts and has been transformed into an area filled with bars, restaurants, markets and shops and has become one of the most-visited parts of the city. It is considered to be Sydney's oldest preserved colonial district . In addition to the retail and dining options, attractions include the Sydney Visitor Centre, the Museum of Contemporary Art, The Merchants House, The Susannah Place Museum (a row of old terraced houses restored to their original state), the Discovery Museum and the oldest building in the city, Cadman's Cottage.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of the world's most iconic bridges and a significant feat of engineering. It was opened in 1932 after more than 8 years of construction work although planning of the bridge had begun as early as 1912. The bridge is known locally by the affectionate nick-name of 'The Coathanger' due to its unusual shape. At it's tallest point, the bridge stands 134m high and has a total length of 503m. With a breadth of 49m, the bridge is the widest single-span bridge in the world. The bridge has 8 lanes for vehicles, a further two train lines and a pedestrian footway as well as a cycle path. For those who wish to cross the bridge 'the hard way' bridge climbs are also available. The bridge connects Sydney's CBD area with the area known as the North Shore and is just across the water from the Sydney Opera House in one direction and the Luna Park amusement park in the other. The Harbour Bridge is always a key focal point of any national celebrations such as New Year's Eve when it is lit up with a major firework display.
