When Melbourne is sunny this is a lovely place to have a walk, jog or simply read a book. Saw people having a picnic here. A great idea. A well maintained garden with some lovely garden features.

It was cold when we got there, colder than usual but was winter after all. Lovely garden and very well kept.

Amazing Gardens where you have food stalls and benches to relax. It also has library with huge collection of books. Amazing experience.

Sometimes I take my dog into the city and we walk for many kilometres through Melbourne’s parks. There are plenty of off leash areas (there are,after all, so many city living dogs) and cafes which welcome dogs at tables outside.

Even on a cloudy day Treasury Gardens: so peaceful, the JFK memorial is worth the visit. Clean toilets as well

If you are already tired from the usual tour, you can relax in the garden and be one with nature :) The peaceful ambiance and beautiful flowers in the garden are just great!
