Royal Botanic Gardens

Great escape from the city
The Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney are a massive area right on the water- perfect for picnics, tag football, or just sitting under a tree and reading a great book. We walked around the gardens for over an hour, admiring the different and unique trees and plants that we had never seen before.

Ibis Watching
I love a stroll through the Royal Botanical Gardens in the city center of Sydney. It's a great way to spend an afternoon. I meandor about taking in all the variety of wonderful plantlife in the park, but, it's the ibis that tend to catch my attention. These very large, black and white, prehistoric looking birds are friendly, curious and seem to well populate the park. LA offers the typical, sparrow and crow, but ibis,.....NO. I find them interesting, entertaining and good for a photo op.
