Spring Sydney Walks We Cannot Wait For

As winter departs (thank goodness this winter has been snappy) and Spring creeps closer, there are a few walks we Sydneysiders cannot wait for! 

When wattle starts blooming, bees come out in force, and city flowers bloom – we know it’s Spring! Below are some breathtaking Sydney walks and places you can take your friends and family and enjoy Spring! 

1. Royal Botanic Gardens Walk

The Royal Botanic Gardens is beautiful and green throughout the year; however, it is at its best in Spring! The garden has a swarm of flower arrangements, floral lined walkways, roses, lilies, camellia trees, and wisteria trees in full blossom. 

The garden is of no shortage of lush and beautiful—one of Sydney’s best attractions and one of the most amazing botanic gardens in the world. As a bonus, you also get views of Sydney Harbour, The Opera House, and Woolloomooloo docks, which is a sight on its own. 

Royal Botanic Gardens also houses Calyx, home to one of the most extensive green walls in the southern hemisphere, a cafe, shopping, and an exciting range of events and workshops. 

Located within the heart of the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, The Calyx (pron. Kal-is) is defined as ‘the sepals of a flower, typically forming a whorl that encloses the petals and forms a protective layer around a flower bud.’

Calyx will inspire you to propagate and start arranging your plants – even if you are no green thumb. 

The only thing to remember is that the gardens are very extensive, so if you have little ones with you, 100% bring a pram and some chalk/toys to entertain the kids as there are no playgrounds in the vicinity. 

2. Royal Botanic to Barangaroo Walk (through Circular Quay & Rocks)

Royal Botanic to Barangaroo Walk is one of the most rewarding walks, in my opinion. You can tick off some iconic landmarks, including The Opera House, Circular Quay, and Bradfield park, while making your way to Barangaroo – a character-packed destination sure not to be missed! Rocks house some of the oldest pubs in Sydney, so it’s a great vibe if you want to stop for a swig. 

No major playgrounds on this walk, but your little one can use their imagination and engage in their environment. 

It’s usually busy around the Circular Quay; except for this, the rest of the walk is generally peaceful. 

3. Tumbalong Park and Darling Harbour Walk

Gathered around the sparkling harbor waters, you’ll find Tumbalong Park and Darling Harbour Walk. This neighborhood enjoys proximity to the priceless Sydney Harbour waterfront, the fun of Tumbalong Park, and the six hectares of open green space, so we cannot wait to enjoy it as the weather gets warmer. 

Your little ones will enjoy Tumbalong Park’s extensive playground and water features. Tumbalong Park playground houses a big spread-out garden with many fun activities, from the giant slide to the flying fox to the water play area!

Remember that this place tends to get extremely crowded, so it is recommended to go there during the week and avoid weekends or school holidays! 

Sydney is a fantastic place to live, work and raise a family all year round. If you’re thinking of buying, selling, renting, or investing, get in touch with our friendly team today.
