Picnic Spots in Sydney


Spring's just around the corner and we know everyone loves outdoor activities! What a better way to welcome the warm weather than with a picnic.

Here are some random picnic spots around Sydney where you can sit, grab a bite and relax.

Hyde Park

One of Sydney's favourite tourist spots, Hyde Park is the oldest parkland in Australia. It's very big so you have many spot options to choose from. You can also visit St Mary's Cathedral and the ANZAC Memorial.



Mrs. Macquarie's Chair

It's the best place to watch the Opera House. Right next to the Royal Botanical Gardens, and walking distance from Circular Quay.


Bradfield Park

This spot is right under the Harbour Bridge and has great views from the eastern and western side of Sydney. You can walk all the way from Circular Quay and have a rest at this beautiful spot.


Bondi Beach

Either you pick the sand or the grass, you can appreciate the scenic sea views that Bondi Beach has to offer. There's also a skate park and a lot of small shops in the pavilion.


Dudley Page Reserve

Not a lot of people know about this small picnic area, but it's a great one! You can have a look at Sydney's stunning skyline and enjoy the sunset with a quiet and relaxing picnic.
