Parks and Gardens
Sydney has a number of beautiful parks and gardens. The Botanical Gardens wrap around Sydney Harbour from Mrs Macquarie's Chair to the Opera House and afford beautiful views of both the city and harbour. Hyde Park is only a short walk from Town Hall station and is popular for lunchtime games of touch football and soccer.
The Domain is a park which joins Hyde Park and the Botanical Gardens and is often a venue for musical events and short film festivals, particularly in Summer. Directly opposite our campus, Belmore Park is a popular place for people to relax in the sun or have their lunch.
