when you take a stroll alongside the Yarra river from the city centre you soon come to a beautiful botanic garden which is really worth a visit.

Great historic gardens with lots of seating and shade. Hosting a wedding with a beautiful rotunda in case of rain. The Melbourne city skyline in the background How could it be better!

The most beautiful park in all of Melbourne. I love it any time of the year. Have coffee or lunch at Tea Roms by Ornamental Lake and you may be lucky to hear a harp.

Tranquility in the centre of this amazing city. Nicely busy at all hours of the day and evening. Nicely challenging uphill section on the circuit which is just long enough to hurt!

A range of plants, water features and walking paths. A fantastic bit of serenity in a bustling city. Make sure you visit Gulifoyles volcano while you are there.

Not far from the city you will find the royal botanic gardens, sometimes it is nice to escape the concrete, steel & glasses jungle and wander amongst things growing, lie on the grass, watch swans and ducks glide and paddle across the water.
