We've divided the Garden into three zones to make it easy for you to find your way around.
Escape Sydney's CBD and spend some time in the tropics! The Latitude 23 glasshouse is brimming with tropical gems including orchids and bromeliads, many of which have never been on display to the public before. Our volunteer guides open the glasshouse on weekdays from 11 am – 2 pm.
Beat the winter blues and get away from it all in the Camellia Garden. The Garden's historic camellia plantings and rare tropical species light up winter with their abundance of flowers. If you're a tea lover, keep an eye out for the Camellia sinensis – it's the species tea is made from.
Marvel at the range of native plants in the rockery! Located near the Sydney Opera House, the Australian Native Rockery features iconic Australian plants such as Gymea lillies, banksias and grevilleas.
Immerse yourself in the Herb Garden's intoxicating aromas and relax in the sandstone pavilion. Children of all ages will love the Sensory Fountain and knowledge seekers will learn about the history and folklore surrounding herbs from around the world.
Surrender to the sensory pleasures of the Palace Rose Garden. Our horticulturalists and scientists have collaborated to care for the Rose Garden using sustainable practices.
Experience the grandeur of dramatic formal gardens and see trees planted by royalty! Please visit the Government House website to learn more about opening hours and accessibility.
Explore the Palace Gardens to experience the perfect combination of history and horticulture. You'll find the Horticultural Trial Beds just beside the Conservatorium of Music.
