Choo Choo Express

Relax and enjoy the scenic wonders of the Royal Botanic Garden on the Choo Choo Express.

Your guide will offer fascinating facts about the history of the Garden, discuss the plants and point out the landmarks around Sydney's spectacular harbour.

Hop on, hop off – it's the tour that lets you decide when to take a break

One of the best things about the Choo Choo Express is that you can hop on and off at any of the four stops scattered throughout the Garden.

Take some time to smell the roses 

If roses and tropical plants are your passion, disembarking at Stop 1 will satisfy your heart's desire.

Explore the Domain 

If a visit to the Domain or Art Gallery of NSW is part of your plans for the day, the Woolloomooloo Gate at Stop 2 is the one for you.

Visit the Garden Shop and café

If you're feeling famished or in need of a coffee, hop off at Stop 3 – the Botanic Gardens Restaurant and Cafe. The Garden Shop and visitor information centre are also at this stop – learn more about the free guided walks that leave from here. 

Enjoy iconic harbour views from Mrs Macquarie's Chair

Mrs Macquarie's Point at Stop 4 offers fabulous views of Sydney's iconic harbour, it's a great place to take photos to share with your friends and family.

We'd love to see your pics on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram – don't forget to tag us #RBGSydney.
