Visited on Friday 23rd February. We walked through these gardens when we visited The Shrine of Remembrance and The Sydney Myer Music Bowl. A relaxing area away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

These are large gardens that run down St Kilda Road and border the Royal Botanic Gardens and are quite beautiful in their own right with a number of interesting places to walk and some interesting statues and fountains. Pick a nice sunny day.

We walked through the King's Domain Gardens on our way to the Government House. Nice greenery to walk through - and very clean. The Botanic Gardens (which are further south from the King's Domain) had more flowers. Kings Domain was mainly greenery.
