About Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, Melbourne

It’s going to be impossible for you to cover everything this place has to offer unless you plan on spending all day here… there’s just too much to see. In 38 hectares, the Gardens offer a mini-forest of early 10000 individual species of plants; most of which are not native to Australia. It’s an easy distance from the city centre, making it a very convenient spot to escape the city’s scorching summer heat, like a convenient oasis. There’s an ornamental lake on the grounds that is a beautiful picnic spot. A coffee shop sells food and ice creams for those looking to top up after hours of wandering. By far one of the most popular features here is The Tan, a running track heavily frequented by locals, tourists and sports celebrities. A full day out in the Garden would be a day well spent.

Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, Melbourne Reviews

  • The Botanic Gardens are an amazing place to visit and to enjoy a family trip. This attraction is available all year round and all seasons too! I went in Summer and the weather was simply just beautiful! If you would like to go, then you can look up at the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria page, where there is more information. Overall, it is a great place to go and chill, and especially to see the beautiful variations of plants! Definitely a trip that's worth going!

  • A magical place of design from 150years prior. A hilly get away in the heart of Melbourne. Great as a place to chill and relax. Place to see plants and trees and birds from around different lands. Bring kids. Or date spot. Picnic by the lake? Romance? Family outing? A place to just relax. Maybe a book and a glass of wine. I think this is a magical place.

  • Very nice place where you can enjoy Forrest air, you can listen small birds singing, enjoy smell of Grass... You also cam find many many kind of trees in the world here. I will come back again in near future with my family

  • We came on perfect day. Beautiful weather, warm with a slight breeze. There are a lot of children today but the flowers, plants and trees are beautiful. Absolutely wonderful place for a walk.

  • Beautiful garden with lots of variety of trees, plants flowers of all kinds. It is a serene place. I have seen a couple of weddings happening here in the summer of 2018
