We had the pleasure of exploring the Treasury Gardens, the Botanic Gardens, Flagstaff Gardens and other little gardens scattered throughout the city area. Melbourne is lucky to have all these close to the city. They were all well maintained and clean. Well worth a visit to find a relaxing and welcoming oasis in the city.

A haven from the traffic, clean and always beautifully landscaped and maintained, Melbourne's gardens are a spot to walk, sit, lie down and read a book, or enjoy a coffee. You can also learn a bit about native vegetation along the way.

Came for a walk around here one afternoon pretty much by mistake. Ended up spending hours just walking around taking it all in. Highly recommend

So nice to have a garden to escape the crowds and city rush. Melbourne has quite a few to offer around it's edges. Take advantage of them.

Any visitor to Melbourne should take the time to stroll through Melbourne's beautiful parks and gardens. They are all lovingly tended by the local Councils and it is a joy to spend time wandering through, particularly in spring when all the annuals are in bloom

Melbourne has many gardens to see. Kings Domain, Queen Victoria, Flagstaff, Royal Botanical are just a few. The green areas in urban Melbourne are well kept and worth a visit any time of the year. In winter be sure to rug up and keep warm.

Spectacular colours delight as you walk through the many gardens in Melbourne. Add the perfect blue sky and who needs a gallery! Thank-you Melbourne patriarchs who planned and cared for these truly magnificent spaces. Year round they are beautiful but autumn has to be one of my favourite times to enjoy them...go!
