This large garden is close to the free tram transport. The Garden is divided into several different parts and all are worth visiting.

We walked around the gardens they are so tranquil and beautifully laid out and kept they ate amazing.
The glasshouses were quite old but again well kept and we ended up going into the cafe by the lake for some tea/coffee and cake.
A great way to spend a day enjoy

This amazing garden is definitely my favourite place in melbourne!
Beautiful and tranquil with so many hidden spots. I love to go for long walks here on my own or bring the family for an outing.
A must visit

take the trolley or bus and go for a walk; free entry. beautiful and free. Cool weather is a plus. Ask at the visitor center for what is blooming but the fern gully walk and the lake are a good choice.
