The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney - Sculpture Trail
The Sydney Botanic Garden (not yet Royal) was founded in 1816 by Governor Lachlan Macquarie and his wife Elizabeth who had arrived in the rough and ready penal colony six years earlier with a Neo- classical pattern book. The Garden and its amazing location-harbour side next door to the Governor’s house- was part of a dream of transplanting the best of ‘Old World’ Civilisation in ‘New World’ soil.
Today the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, is an idyllic landscape in the heart of a glimmering city of concrete, steel and glass. The swaling lawns and huge rooty fig trees wrapped around a blue cove feel like a world the city is dreaming, the timeless calm deepened by the daily bustle around it.
This booklet lets you explore the variety of sculptures and monuments throughout the garden at your own pace, with detailed information about each of the pieces. The centrefold of the booklet is a map with a suggested walk to make sure you don’t miss any of the sculptures.
