This place is very sweet to walk around, we loved checking out all the new birds that we would not see in the UK, however the only problem is that they have a tendency to dive bomb your food if your not vigilante.

Visited with my partner for a stroll and coffee/cake on a lovely warm afternoon. Sat around and watched the ducks then went and had a coffee and cake at the local cafe there. Nice spot!

If you have kids or just want to stroll great place to visit. Check local guides for shows and entertainment in the park.

This is a must see place in Melbourne. Lovely walk and very interesting, close to the city centre and a very therapeutic way to spend a few hours

within minutes of the bustling streets of the city are the historic and most importantly quiet botanical gardens. every corner reveals a new and interesting view.

Bigger than you realise. A bit of quiet in the hustle and bustle of Melbourne. Recommend going at sunrise or sunset

Had a bit of a walk round first, stopped at the cafe whilst waiting for a guided tour with a volunteer guide. Some very interesting plants.

A great place to visit in a sunny day. Pack a picnic and spend the day there. Around the park is The Tan, Melbourne's most popular running track.
