  • The Park stopped in Melbourne. Very nice Park Lawn, tree spacing, alignment, so there is a metropolitan city and a dignified remembrance, and this beautiful park view! Tram station, easy access. From the Flinders tried Station South to walk about 15 minutes!

  • It is a park that stretches North to the South-East side across the Yarra River in the center of the city. Including the Royal Botanical Gardens on the East side is located on the South side of Queen Victoria Garden, almost unable to break, all walked. Best walking course is kept very clean and, if the weather is good.

  • Be sure to take a stroll here, here in Melbourne. Without expectations that bicycles can be visited if you visit remember better times.

  • Not as pretty as Botanical gardens it is regardless Great park to walk or run around the tan. Easy access to public transport and toilets and gazebos or benches to sit in shade
  • Beautifully maintained gardens that provide an appropriately peaceful buffer around the Shrine of Remembrance.
  • A great spot to get away from the city and go for a walk or run around the tan track at just over 3.8 km. A number of toilets located within and easy access to public transport. Plenty of events happen either in the botanical gardens or at Sydney Myer's music bowl so it is well worth a visit.
  • Place is awesome. Fresh air and nature is out there to grab and take
  • Even on a cold Melbourne Autumn day it's still a beautiful place to visit

Where to stay in Melbourne

The hub of tourist and commercial activity, the center of Melbourne remains the best place to stay if you're looking to splurge and enjoy every possible modern amenity during your visit. Travelers on a limited budget can search for cozy yet less expensive rooms in the seaside suburb of St Kilda or the bohemian neighborhood of Fitzroy. Though the city center offers more than a fair share of mid-range lodging options, you'll also find plenty of rooms in this price bracket in the quieter suburbs.
