There are many different walks and pathways here to suit the casual or serious walker. Beautifully maintained gardens with a lake area, rainforest walk, children's area, grass areas, sculptured plants, cactus gardens, etc. So close to town and easily accessed. Tram stop (Domain interchange) is directly across the road. Shrine or Remembrance is also here and well worth a visit.

You could easily spent hours at this oasis in the city. Enjoying afternoon tea with scones and fresh jam by the lake, you could just sit and absorb the natures... so relaxing! The volcano at the top with succulents and cactus are my favorite spot. Gorgeous!

Spent many good times enjoying the gardens as a child with my family. Took these wonderful experiences and shared them with my own children and still do so. A must for all to enjoy!!

Loved the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne. So many flowers and plants. Some flowers I'd never seen anywhere else (Angel's Trumpet). Great place to walk, jog or bike about.

The Botanic Gardens are a wonderful feature in Melbourne. They are located beside the Yarra River which provides a beautiful backdrop. The gardens were organized into themes and a wonderful way to spend a sunny afternoon.
