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 - Write a Review

  • Breathtakingly beautiful! I love this garden and always look forward for a quick stroll. You get engulfed in natural beauty and at times forget that you are so near to the city. Lovely place and not to be missed!

  • Had a wonderful day in the gardens, so many unusual trees and plants to see. The only negative comment I have is that almost all the interesting trees that I saw, I could only wonder how old they were as there were no plaques on them to say when they were planted. I would have loved to know more about them

  • Large and varied gardens. Lots of variety. Easy to spend an afternoon or even a full day here. Plenty of scenic walks. You can for a boat ride if you wish. Toilet facilities. Good signage generally though it is possible to get a little lost.

  • Indeed a “Royal” Park... if you want to spend beautiful time with friends and family amidst the nature this is the perfect place in Melbourne. FYIP...I felt the temperature was -5 degree Celsius less than the outside temperature...that’s really cool in summer 😄👍🏻

  • A must see place in Melbourne. It's nature everywhere spread with Trees, variety of plants and Amazing beautiful flowers. There id a pond with Ducks and fishes. Fern gardens and plenty. We could see variety of bitds.
