For a relaxing meal or coffee inside the gardens there is the Botanic Gardens Restaurant which overlooks the gardens at Palm Grove. Free guided tours run every morning at 10:30 for 45 minutes. Tours meet at the park entrance, which is the Visitors Centre on Mrs Macquarie's Road. Address:Mrs Macquaries Road, Sydney, NSW, 2000.
