If you’re lucky enough to live in Sydney, you may have already been to the Royal Botanic Gardens or nearby Mrs Macquarie’s chair for a wander. This time, why don’t you take a blanket, a packed lunch, some bubbly, some great friends and you've got the perfect Sydney afternoon! The Royal Botanic Gardens is a stunning place to enjoy some down time with your loved ones; all with a drink in hand and the sun in the sky! Last time I was there with my friends, we lay down on the grass and watched the puffy clouds go by. There are plenty of plants to view if that’s your thing, or just watch the fitness fanatics run past while you devour cheese and crackers! It really is a special day in the sunshine in fabulous Farm Cove, only a stone’s throw from the iconic Sydney Opera House.
