    Stunning views

    This is one of the best places in Sydney for a stunning view of the harbour, particularly on a sunny day! Located near the Royal Botanical Gardens, this is an amazing site for a picnic or a walk!

Introduction

Mrs. Macquarie's Chair is a rock cut into the shape of a bench by artisans in memory of Mrs. Macquarie, located in the north of Sydney's Royal Botanic Gardens. Mrs. Macquarie's Chair is separated from the Sydney Opera House by just a narrow bay, which houses an observation deck that is a prime spot for a view of two gems of modern architecture, Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge. Standing at Mrs. Macquarie's Chair, visitors can snap a panoramic image of the opera house, skyline and Sydney Harbour Bridge.
