Melbourne is lucky to have gardens at all four corners of the central business district. Each has their own character and unique features to discover. Flagstaff gardens in the west was once a cemetery for the first settlers, guided into the city by the flagpole on the small mound that was here. Carlton Gardens to the north is Heritage Listed...

The Melbourne' s garden is just gorgeous, it is a very nice place to go and see a beautiful landscape. It is free, you can get the tram (which is also free) and go around the cdb to enjoy the gardens.

Plenty to see in this beautiful garden. If this is your first visit, join one of the free guided tours. Or simply follow your nose. You won't be disappointed. My favourite sections are the children's gardens, the volcano, the herb garden and the recently discovered bamboo groves. Spend a few hours or a whole day there. There's a fabulous restaurant...

I have visited the Melbourne Gardens several times and so close to the Flinders Railway Station just around the corner. Lots of different paths to take and plenty to see.

How fantastic are the gardens of Melbourne. They truly are a testament to the quality of planning of an earlier age. Yarra, Fiztroy, Alexander, Treasury, Edinburgh, Flagstaff the're all magnificent.

Melbourne is filled with some wonderful parks, each with their own distinct character and location. It is worth finding time to visit and relax in them all.
