    The aquarium organizes displays by habitats: Southern Rivers, Northern Rivers, Southern Oceans, Northern Ocean; but also has special sections on dugongs and crustaceans. It's also has a terrific section on the Great Barrier Reef, so you can see the reef fish without going up north to Queensland.

    Royal Botanic Gardens

    34 reviews

    I loved wandering the many trails of the botanic garden. You get great views, can delight in the plantings, and stretch out a bit. Warning: do not walk under the trees that are full of flying foxes. Trust me. The RBG is trying to evict them, but success is iffy.
