Sydney is such an interesting city to visit, with iconic landmarks and tourist attractions, amazing dining and nightlife, along with a beautiful setting on the harbour. Sydney is, however, a big city, and like all big cities, the busy traffic, noise and crowds of people can be a bit much at times.
It is good to be able to find a nice quiet spot to just relax for a few moments, to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and be with your own thoughts. If you’re visiting, a luxurious Sydney hotel can be a good place to go and relax, but there are also lots of wonderful quiet places to relax around the city, from parks to beaches and quiet buildings. Here are some quiet places to relax in Sydney.
Royal Botanic Gardens
Visiting one of Sydney’s picturesque greenspaces is a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. The Royal Botanic Gardens is one of Sydney’s oldest parklands and the oldest botanic garden in Australia. It stretches from the harbour, southeast of the Sydney Opera House, to connect with The Domain, next to St Mary’s Cathedral. The Royal Botanic Gardens is a haven for a diverse range of flora from all over the world, with a focus on plants from Australia and the South Pacific, all displayed in perfectly manicured gardens.
There are many interesting parts to the garden and you are sure to find the perfect spot to relax, whether it is sitting on a quiet bench, taking a nap on one of the green lawns or watching the boats go by along the harbour. You can also relax with stunning views of the city, the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge.
