The Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens with stunning Harbour Views.

Set on the foreshores of Sydney's majestic Harbour lie the beautifully presented Royal Botanic Gardens, where native Australian and tropical flora set the backdrop of your garden wedding.

The Botanic Gardens of Sydney were founded on this site by Governor Macquarie in 1816 as part of the Governor's Domain. The first Colonial Botanist, Charles Fraser, was appointed in 1817, establishing the Gardens as the oldest scientific institution in Australia. In 1959, the title "Royal" was added to the gardens title.

Today, the Sydney Gardens cover 30 hectares in a spectacular setting on the shores of Sydney Harbour, with 10,960 examples of plants, trees and flowers from Australia and overseas on display.

The Gardens First Fleet Steps are the point where Queen Elizabeth II first set foot on Australian soil, and a commemorative wall marks the event. The site offers stunning views of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge.

The nearby Mrs Macquaries Point Chair marks one of the popular photographic spots in Sydney with views across the Harbour to the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. The Governor's wife had the chair fashioned out of the rock so she could relax and watch the passing ships.

For your wedding at the Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens, we have selected the best and most picturesque locations overlooking the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, to make the most of your wedding photo and DVD memories.
