St Kilda Botanical Gardens is an ideal spot for a picnic, day out with a touch of history. Great walking paths and plenty of spots to have a picnic. Take the camera. Free entry.

Lovely place for a walk. Although close to the beach and the bustle of St Kilda, it is quiet, relaxing with lots of shady places to sit. Loved the Rainman fountain! Usual lack of recycling bins though. Melbourne and Victoria in general is really bad...More
