located close to Jolimont rail station. A nice place to relax, (close to downtown). If you need to chill, here is the place.

Other attractions in the Gardens include Captain James Cook's Cottage, the Fairies' Tree, James Sinclair Cottage, a miniature Tudor village, many statues and fountains, walkways, Pavilion Cafe, and of course...

These gardens are beautifully green, with groves of trees, shrubs and ferns, water features and quaint features such as the carved tree trunk known as the Faerie Tree. My favourite spot is the Conservatory. It is not a big conservatory by international standards, but it presents some really pretty and unusual plants that have been painstakingly tended. Good for visitors... More

My friends and I were actually wanted to visit the Cook's Cottage which is located inside the garden. But as soon as we step into the garden, we all just sit down and relax because the garden is so peaceful. We just sat there and chit-chat and finally we reached the Cook's Cottage. And to our surprise, the Cook's Cottage... More

Beautiful garden, large and peaceful. The greenery is astonishing, numerous paths around the park and the Cook`s Cottage being a major attraction.

I have not visited these gardens since my childhood. It brought back so many memories: Big sheltering trees, wide expanses of lawn, great flowerbeds, wide walking paths, Captain Cook's Cottage, The Faerie Tree and the miniature Tudor Cottage. What a magic place to spend a sunny Friday afternoon!

It is surrounded by a hospital, hotel and houses. It is the lungs of East Melbourne especially for the workers during the day. The greenery is therapeudic and restful to the eyes. The shades provided by the trees are much needed in this hot weather and the declining green open spaces.

We went to the Old Bandstand for a family wedding in all the party was around seventy people. The weather was good, always a plus for an outdoor wedding, and the park looked good on the day. I think we got some good wedding photos with the city skyline in the background with the bandstand and the park looking green... More
