To reach the Royal Botanic Gardens from Coogee Beach there are a few options. One of the quicker involves a two minute walk to Randwick Rugby Club, followed by the 374 Bus, which passes through the Museum of Sydney on Phillip street. From there the gardens are a short five minute walk. If you are time poor we recommend taking an uber, which will take approximately fifteen minutes from the hotel.
