About St Kilda Botanical Gardens, Melbourne

St Kilda Botanical Gardens are a botanical garden located in the suburb St Kilda, Victoria, Australia. Located on the former site of a gravel pit and rubbish dump, they were formally gazetted on 28 September 1859 and opened in 1861. In October 2010 City of Port Phillip provided funds for the design of four distinctive new gates, to celebrate the Gardens 150th anniversary. The gates were installed on Tennyson, Dickens and Herbert Streets. They were designed and sculpted by designer/blacksmith David Wood of Bent Metal. In 1948 the Alister Clark Memorial Rose Garden was opened; in 1985 it was redesigned in its current style. At one time the Alister Clark garden contained a large selection of roses bred by him, but only a few remain, crowded out by David Austin ones. This garden should not be confused with the comprehensive Alister Clark Memorial Rose Garden at Bulla, north of Melbourne. The ornamental pond near the sub-tropical rainforest conservatory is being refurbished. At the same time, St Kilda Rain Man, designed by Corey Thomas and Ken Arnold and installed in 2005 will be repaired. Rain Man fountain is solar powered and uses recycled water from the pond below.

St Kilda Botanical Gardens, Melbourne Reviews - Write a Review

  • Lovely park to stop and smell the roses (especially since there is a whole garden full). Great for kids. Pets welcome (leashed). Nice and quite for a short stroll (hardly any traffic noise). Perfect for a picnic.

  • Excellent! Very intersting place to explore, enjoy and relax. The rose garden and various garden beds can be quite spectacular at the right time of the year. Great park infrastructure and very well set out. There is a rainforest conservatory if you want a short experience detour. As you walk around you feel your moving from one park type to another.

  • This place can be easily underrated, especially when St Kilda is well known for its beaches. The garden is actually a great place to relax on the Saturday afternoon. Although it's smaller than some gardens near the CBD, there's still plenty of trees and other plants, as well as a mini rose garden

  • I love this quaint little garden. Makes me miss living near by it :( Definitely something to check out tho and enjoy with friends over a picnic or walk.

  • I have to say it's one of the melbournes jewels and part of why it wins most livable city.great for walks and the serenity but also such effort to care for these gardens. Make sure you find the waterfalls and ponds. Often hosts outdoor films etc.
