Amongst Sydney’s world-class theatres and venues, famous attractions, and shopping centres are a number of scenic parks for couples to enjoy a relaxing change of pace, stroll, and soak up the atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle. During your stay at our Darling Harbour self contained accommodation, make sure to visit these famous parks that Sydney has to offer.

Hyde Park
At the heart of the Sydney CBD is Hyde Park, and just like London’s Hyde Park and New York’s Central Park, Hyde Park in Sydney is an oasis for locals and tourists amongst the hustle and bustle of the city. Hyde Park is famous for being Australia’s oldest park, and the perfect spot to relax after a few hours of wandering Sydney’s shopping centres, museums, and attractions. Inside the park are a number of monuments to see, including the ANZAC War Memorial, Pool of Reflection, and Archibald Fountain. For both locals and tourists, Hyde Park is the perfect escape to be found in the heart of Sydney.

Royal Botanic Gardens
Located next to the harbour and rich with idyllic gardens, the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney is the ideal park for photographers, birdwatchers, yogis, walkers, and picnickers. This colourful park is home to both native flora and birds, offering lots to spot within. The Royal Botanic Gardens is also a fantastic spot to catch a view of the Sydney Opera House with the Sydney Harbour Bridge posing just behind it.

Centennial Park
Found just outside of the Sydney CBD is Centennial Park - Sydney’s largest park, which was opened in 1888. Being Sydney’s largest park, Centennial Park offers lots to explore within it, including several scenic ponds, shaded areas, and well-looked-after gardens. It’s the ideal park for joggers and cyclists, boasting around 360 hectares of land to roam and wander as you please.

Barangaroo Reserve
Barangaroo Reserve is a waterfront reserve found near Sydney Harbour Bridge and just moments away from The Rocks. Offering a picturesque waterfront path and clear views of Sydney Harbour Bridge, Barangaroo Reserve is a great spot to stroll after exploring The Rocks Markets. It’s also a great location to catch the sunset - which any local will confirm.
