view web site ›'s insider take:

Established in 1846, the Royal Botanic Gardens encompasses 87 acres of meandering paths, sweeping lawns, and lily-littered ornamental lakes. Plants are displayed in major groupings and include a shady rain-forest walk, rose and cactus gardens, fern gullies, a tropical glasshouse, and a delightful children's garden that's also fun for adults (who isn't wowed by gigantic vegetables?). Guided garden tours, including an Aboriginal Heritage Walk, leave from the visitor center near Observatory Gate, which also serves café-style meals, if you haven't packed a picnic.
