Melbourne is part of the Garden State for a reason – green spaces, floral displays, sandy beaches and the banks of the river are a big part of daily life. The Royal Botanic Gardens are a stone’s throw from the tennis action at Melbourne Park, and a calm, verdant space for between-match meandering. Relax on the banks of the Yarra River as swans and rowing teams glide by, or spend a while soaking up the atmosphere from Federation Square.
Take a deep breath and relax in the beating green heart of Melbourne. The gardens are a treasured part of Melbourne life with 38 hectares of landscaped gardens blooming and abundant with native and exotic vegetation.
