Located on a bustling main street in one of Sydney's inner city suburbs, is a green oasis that also feels like you're stepping back in time.
The Paddington Reservoir Gardens is a state heritage-listed site that opened in 2009, and has since won design awards in Australia and internationally. Built in 1866, the Paddington Reservoir used to supply water from Botany Bay, in south Sydney.
Today, the landscaped gardens are a peaceful way to enjoy well-preserved nineteenth century Sydney architecture, whilst basking in the warm glow of sun as it filters through this unique urban park.
