Bloomin' Botanic Gardens Sydney - Time to get lost down the garden path..

Escape the hustle and bustle of the city with this trail set in the spectacular Sydney Botanic gardens.

This self-guided cryptic adventure meanders through the gardens and takes you past the best hidden gems and ultimate view-points. Starting at the fountain gates you will try to find the beating drum of the South Pacific and “go troppo” in the tropics.

Watch out for the Devils Tongue sitting quietly next to the menacing looking Snake Palm and get to see one of the world’s rarest trees. Once you’ve solved several clues you have the option to enjoy a drink at one of the relaxing recommended garden stop offs.

Then continue your journey as you take in one of the most iconic views in Sydney, pay a visit to new world succulents and learn about the curious plant named after Lady Gaga.

You will finish near the Art Gallery of New South Wales and upon completion we’ll provide you with your stats and more detailed information of all the places you visited.

Clue hunters agree that The Bloomin Botanic trail is a great way to spend a few hours or make a day of it with your friends and family. What’s not to like? Get your team together, put on those walking shoes and head to the jungle today – It’ll be bloomin’ marvellous!
