“working around the corner from them”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

Lovely to walk through on my way to work & when I m bored & need some fresh air. Or just to amuse myself when I have nothing better to do. Well kept.

“King's Domain”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

Walked through here on my way to the Shrine of Remembrance and Botanical Gardens- lovely walk with plenty to see. Lots of people around doing the same- plenty of locals jogging, walking dogs, out with families- really nice spot.

“Memorials a plenty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

The King's Domain is not only a beautiful green space right in the heart of Melbourne but contains numerous monuments to former monarchs and war heroes. The floral clock and flower bed in front of the statue of the first Governor-General of Australia are particularly pretty. Definitely have a wander through on your way to the Royal Botanic Gardens and the Shrine of Remembrance.

“A quiet and peaceful park so near the bustling center”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

If you want to get away from the busy center go here for a few hours, walk through this well planned park. Take a look at the Music Bowl (not much to see though if the gate is closed), visit the Shrine of Remembrance (great views from the top!), walk further trough the Botanical gardens (free entrance, very nice park, clean toilets), and walk back following the river. Relaxed and with fresh air and new energy you come back to the city center!

“Part of the charm of Melbourne”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Our city is well planned and our gardens surrounding our city are beautiful. I was born in Richmond and would often ride my push bike around this area. Always loved it and always will
