Good place to stroll around and have some quite time. Go there in the evenings and feed the possums. They are mostly tame.

So many great gardens to visit around Melbourne. Too many to list and such little time to see them all. The great thing is they're free! Love this city

The busy city of Melbourne is beautified by gorgeous gardens everywhere. It is possible to walk for miles through beautiful greenery dotted with lakes, statues and flowering plants. That is - if you can drag yourself away from the shops!

The City of Melbourne is surrounded by Gardens in every direction, with the Ocean on the south side. There are the Carlton Gardens, Fitzroy Gardens, Treasury Gardens, Botanical Gardens and the Flagstaff Gardens. Great areas to explore and walk through. Always full of people and tourist enjoying the atmosphere and fresh air with all the magnificent trees and Flora.

Wonderful gardens are the icing on the cake for Melbourne's CBD. Vast expanses of grass and shady trees make exploring Melbourne a real pleasure. They make a lovely backdrop to some of the historic buildings such as the Treasury and Cooks Cottage and more.
