Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, Melbourne Gardens

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Attracting over 1,900,000 visitors annually, Melbourne Gardens is a treasured part of cultural life and a valuable asset to the heritage rich city. With its stunning vistas, tranquil lakes and diverse plant collections, the Gardens are a place of continual discovery and delight.

Enjoy the Aboriginal Heritage Walk, a Free Guided Walk, a ride on The Explorer electric bus or Punting on the tranquil Ornamental Lake, all set against a beautiful backdrop and just moments from the city.

These beautiful Gardens are home to amazing and diverse plant collections such as camellias, rainforest flora, succulents and cacti, roses, Californian species, herbs, perennials, cycads and plants from Southern China. Guilfoyle’s Volcano offers visitors a fabulous precinct to explore. The Gardens are also a natural sanctuary for native wildlife.

The Children’s Garden has everything that children could want to help them discover the natural world, with plant tunnels that they can crawl through, rocks that they can climb and a bamboo forest in which they can hide.

Visitors can unwind at one of two cafés, The Terrace or Jardin Tan. Or find botanical-inspired souvenirs and gifts at the Gardens Shop.

During summer, the lawns come alive with outdoor cinema, theatre performances and exhibitions.
