No trip to Sydney is complete without visiting the Royal Botanical Gardens. With stunning views of the Opera House, Harbor Bridge, Fort Denison, and Wolloomooloo, you can walk the entire Farm Cove in a little under an hour. Kids will love to feed the wild Cockatoos, or visit the Poolside cafe and see the large navy vessels parked at the wharf. It is here that I discovered Sydney's fragrant smell comes from its abundant Fig trees. I have since tried several figs and while the dried ones are too sweet for my liking, the fresh ones are divine.
