It extends across 36 hectares that slope to the river with trees, garden beds, lakes and lawns

The Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne has free admission and is located near the city centre. The gardens are internationally renowned with over 10,000 individual species. If you like nature and gardens, the Royal Botanic Gardens is worth a couple of hours stroll on your visit to Melbourne.

If you visit the gardens in summer and go onto the forest walks please keep your eyes on the path. Yep…snakes.

Only put Coffee Cups in the recycle if it's 100% cardboard. Most coffee cups have a plastic ring on the top of the cup so please look out. There have been a lot of coffee cups sent the wrong way through our waste systems.
