“Garden Walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014

The plants are beautiful and had nice manicured pathways. Their collection of plants and display and landscaping was nice. The restaurant / cafe in the garden had good food and drinks. Good place to get away from city living.

when living in Melbourne i used to frequent the botanic gardens and it was great to revisit this last trip. brought back many memories. The place is still looked after so well.

“A cool place to spend a sunny afternoon or go for a run”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014

The Gardens are really close to the city centre, and on your way there you can see other interesting places too. It's a pretty cool place to have a picnic, walk around or even go for a run! The lakes were my favourite bit, with the gondolas

Went there on Australia Day. Big crowds but plenty of space for everyone. Lovely grounds well laid out and beautifully kept.

“Peaceful, beautiful, relaxing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

I was quite impressed with the Royal botanic Gardens of Melbourne. After walking through the botanical Gardens in Sydney I did not expect much. I really enjoyed these Gardens. I felt it was set up and much more beautiful than the ones in Sydney.

It was a tranquil quiet place in a very loud and busy city. The grounds were well-maintained and cared for.

I would recommend anyone visiting Melbourne to visit these Gardens
