Living just a mere 2 minute walk from this place is the best! I walk through it daily to get to work and it's the type of place that puts you at rest and in touch with mother nature. Possibly the best free experience in Melbourne.

A wonderful haven in the centre of Melbourne. If you want to just relax and get away from the noice of a city this is the place to be.

What a gem in this centre of town. Beautifully kept gardens and lawns including wonderful old trees proving shade for family picnics in the summertime. There are also many seats dotted around the grassed areas. The lake is gorgous, choc full of eels that you can see swimming around. Black swans were gliding on the lake basking in the winter...

These gardens are fantastic... They're enormous; well maintained and a place of relaxation and incredible beauty. They are definitely worth visiting when in Melbourne.
