Botanical Gardens Picnic

Planning a Botanical Gardens Picnic in Sydney?

Sydney’s Royal Botanical Gardens is the perfect location to hold a picnic. Why not get some help with the planning to ensure a hassle-free occasion for everyone. Whether you would like to have a romantic picnic for two or hold a special occasion with your family and friends, the Botanical gardens has picnics covered.

Set on Sydney’s foreshore with views across the city like no other, this would have to be one of the most picturesque picnic spots to be found.

If you are planning the perfect picnic for two, then consider having one of our unique picnic hampers delivered to you in the gardens. They come packed with all that you will require for your picnic. This included a tasty 3 course menu, sparkling wine, tumbler, cutlery, plates, a picnic rug and your very own folding hamper. All of our food boxes are biodegradable and 100% compostable. Once you’ve finished simply pack up your hamper and you can take your reusable picnic ware home with you. The Royal Botanical Gardens is the perfect location for a romantic picnic for 2 or a small group of friends wanting to relax and take in one of Sydney’s most iconic locations.

If you would like to organise a team building picnic or a birthday picnic with a group of your friends, then let one of our picnic planner’s help with selecting a site. Most bookable picnic locations will have a fee attached to your booking and there a few small details to consider regarding this. The Botanical gardens picnic sites allow for some small equipment to be brought into the park and we can advise you of what is considered suitable.

If you like the idea of adding some ball games or other outdoor team entertainment, then you should consider holding your picnic event in the Domain. Here more robust equipment and games are permitted to take place and the Domain sits within the Botanical gardens precinct itself.


Picnics at the Botanical gardens in Sydney are always such perfect occasions, be sure to consult with the Royal Botanic Gardens Trust for detailed booking procedures and feel free to consult with our team for assistance.

There are some picnic spots that have covered rotundas and shade structures available within the Botanical gardens. These are great options for more formal occasions and are also available for booking 6 weeks prior to your occasion.
