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

  • It's really worth to walk a few hours or even to spend the day. There are hundreds of trees and flowers listed in a beautiful setting.

  • 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.
  • Beautiful green gardens on the city edge - stroll along the river, wander through the Botanical gardens, visit the Shrine, just sit on the grass. Melbourne city has some beautiful green gardens to the North, East and South: Flagstaff, Fitzroy and Kings Domain - precious !
  • A beautiful park right next to the city. It also holds the botanical gardens. If you feel for a walk or want to take a rest from the CBD, it's a nice place to escape for a while.
  • Nice place for walking around, exercising or just relaxing. Just, no free parking till later
  • A lovely tranquil place to send an hour or two.
