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.

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.
We only explored the NE portion, with the lakes, but were impressed. Lots of interesting plant varieties to see. When we were there around 10, on a weekday, it was surprisingly quiet. Even more so than Adelaide's one, a much smaller city. You can go punting on the lake. We had the popular fruit salad in a glass, a chicken wrap, 2 coffees; $33. Pricey, but well laid out dining area near the lake. Wonderful views. We met Fergus the Golden Retriever with his lady owner. All the parks staff knew Fergus as a regular guest. The photos below include an incredible Cypress. A heritage listed oak near the gate. Also, a Caucasian Fir, that reminds of Turkey.
We visit the gardens many times throughout the year. Great place to go for walks and a picnic with the kids. Free and plenty of places to explore. Love the Ian Potter Children's Garden in the summer. The water fountains & mini river are a big hit.
This place is amazing. A gem in the heart of Melbourne. One of my favourite places. A national heritage really. Must visit.
Probably the best botanical gardens that I've ever been to. A great mix of historical and informational signs, walk paths, places to sit and chill, range of plants, and so on.
