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.Wikipedia

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.
Superbly maintained, always, and truly botanical in the sense that it has so many different trees, shrubs and flowers, this is one place I'm happy to pay council rates for. It has so many different corners and views of the park, whether you're after a shady or a full-sun spot. A local oasis that is getting a little too well know outside St Kilda.
Excellent suburban gardens run by the council, not the state government like the one near the Yarra. It's not obviously impressive like others, but look closer, you will find unusual botanical gems. We were impressed with size & layout of the rose garden (even in winter). Would definitely come back in spring for the display. Includes a conservatory for tropical plants and a pond. This garden also has community involvement that you will see with the nursery glass house. Since you are nearby; Blessington st, on the northern edge, has some architectural wonders as well. The paths need to be sealed, a note for the council, please.
Lovely gardens the Rose garden is specially nice. A great place to sit for a few hours .
Cool little botanical gardens. Very little information about the Flora, though. And that's what I've come to know, love, and expect from botanical gardens.
