Fantastic on a sunny Melbourne day. For two plant lovers a wonderful day out, so peaceful with brilliant vegetation.
Bring a comfy pair of walking shoes. The collection of trees and plants is astonishing. There is something for everyone--mom, dad, and the kids. And not to worry about getting hungry, the café is excellent with awesome food and great service. Rich in history and a hop to downtown, this is a must see for the nature enthusiast.
The gardens are beautiful with many scenic views. We enjoyed the views around the lake and the beautiful flowers. We also liked the cactus and succulents. The gardens are a great place to relax and enjoy nature in the city.
I have been to the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne several times in recent years, and each time have found something to delight. Easy walking distance from the central city, and complete with cafes and restaurants to suit most tastes, the gardens are a welcome retreat from the traffic or the shopping, whichever is most stressful.

Expansive views, small niche areas, expansive lawns, quiet cul de sacs, a large water area with peaceful swans and other bird life, plus a huge array of plants from around the world, all contribute to the soul enriching experience that is the Melbourne Botanic Gardens. Bring a snack, a picnic basket or buy a nibble or full meal on site... More
I've lived near the botanical Gardens for over 20 years. I always enjoy walking through the gardens, on my own or with family and friends. There are so many beautiful parts to visit, you could wander around for hours. The Children's garden is delightful and you can always get a good coffee at the observatory cafe.
I'm a local from Melbourne and the gardens are one of my favourite places in the city. Take a picnic rug, some nibbles, a book and a bottle of champagne and relax under a tree in these beautiful surroundings. Best to do this on a nice sunny day.
