Situated by the Royal Botanical Gardens this is another example of an oasis of peace and tranquility in a busy city. The flora offers welcome shade in the heat of the Melbourne summers and the variety of plants is stunning. Well worth a gentle stroll...More

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.

As far as I can tell, this is another part of the Royal Botanic Gardens and you have to walk further in from the Alexander Gardens. The difference seems to be that there is a lot more activity because there are plenty of statues to...More
