Love these gardens - beautiful for a stroll or picnic or just sitting on a bench breathing in the energised air 🌳 Love taking the weekend papers and a rug and sprawling out for a few hours with a snooze along the way !

These gardens have been a firm favourite of mine, ever since I could walk. I love the ambience; the old, spreading trees and flowers in carpet bedding. Also the memorial to the Boer War, which is quite unusual for Melbourne, and evidence of one of...More

Victorian manicured gardens that are surround by significant and consistent architectural Victorian mansions. The most expensive real estate in Melbourne.
