The Governor's Wife's Perch

The little peninsula called Mrs Macquaries Point juts into Sydney Harbour between Farm Cove and Woolloomooloo Bay. Part of the open space called the Domain adjoining Sydney's Royal Botanic Gardens, the peninsula includes a sandstone-carved bench known as Mrs Macquarie's Chair: a rock-cut vantage created for the pleasure of Governor Lachlan Macquarie's wife, Elizabeth, in 1810.

Today, you can enjoy the same view Mrs Macquaries savored back then: a stunning vista out over the harbor that encompasses the iconic profile of the Sydney Opera House. It's easily one of the nicest panoramas in Sydney.
