The sheer pleasure of nature

We entered the gardens via the Lych gate, well signposted back across the river from the Finders station street entrance and walking through the recreational area alongside the River Yarra. Although this is not the first time we have visited these extensive parkland gardens, it...

My favourite botanical garden in the world

The place is stunning. You can get lost in it, it is so photogenic, you can still learn heaps about plants and you can attend events in it. Much more than a botanical garden.

Fabulous, must see

What an absolute joy to walk in these gardens. Terrific backdrop of the Melbourne centre. Lots of useful information with well tended tracks. I'm not really a "plant" person but really enjoyed this.

Calm and relaxing place

The gardens are beautiful. The old trees and the lovely walkways. A great place to come and relax. Next time I would bring a picnic.

Visiting the highlights of Melbourne

Our stay in Melbourne we enjoyed the gardens , the weather was perfect ... how beautiful they are totally worth the visit to leisurely walk around with a coffee

A lovely garden close the the centre of Melbourne. We took a wander round and just sat there - very pretty and tranquil even its proximity to the centre. Worth looking round Cooks Cottage.

A delightful little respite that should be included in your Melbourne meandering! Take time to sit, stroll and embrace the beauty of this inner city park.

nice large park with several interesting historical monuments & attractive flowerbeds. great place to relax in, you can see the city but the hum just fades away. does need more toilets though

Scenic Gardens in the City Centre

The Queen Victoria Gardens are well located in Melbourne's CBD and are well maintained, etc. Even though it was raining this afternoon, my friend and I enjoyed our walk through the gardens. Serene and peaceful, the QVG are a real landmark in this city.

Creative artwork in a pleasant garden

We love walking through this garden, with the different vegies, and especially the clever sculptures and ornamental artworks. Many are fascinating to see,with some clever ideas for what would otherwise be junk. We visit it every time we are in St. KIlda

Great area to relax

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.

Magnificent Gardens

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.

Nice to walk through and sit and have a picnic

Nice little park kept neat and tidy. Great for a picnic and it has a nice park for the children. Sometimes there is also pony rides there. Toilets could be kept a bit cleaner and appealing to use.

Well maintained park on St Kilda's beachfront.

Visited on Friday 23rd February. I have often walked along this part of St Kilda's beachfront and these particular gardens are always well maintained. Todays visit was no different.

one of my favourite gardens in Melbourne

As a St Kilda local I go to Catani often with my dog. Instead of going to the beach and getting all sandy I come here with my towel and relax. The massive palm trees are my favourite.

Summer day hangs.

Great place to relax with friends for a picnic with some music or a game of soccer on a summers day. The public toilets need more regular maintenance though.

Daughters Wedding

Our Daughter and her fiancee were married at the City of Melbourne Bowling Club in the beautiful surrounds of Flagstaff Gardens. An ideal setting.

Chill out here.

I have many trips to the Melbourne Central Business District. These gardens are awesome. Sun filled with great lawns and tree covered shade. A great place for a break or just to contemplate.

Great spot to have a picnic.

Daytime provides a welcome break from work/sightseeing but evening is enchanted, with the squirrels coming out to play. Take some crusts and feed the little critters right there in Latrobe Street. Magical.

Great History Tour

It was a great way to enjoy 2-3 hours. Cafe in the stables and a great garden to stroll around the tour was highly informative and was just long enough. I would recommend this to anyone interested in Melbourne or colonial history.

Fortunate enough to visit during the Paris to Provence Fair

It has been many, many years (+ 30) since this writer visited. The Paris to Provence Fair coincided with City2Sea event last weekend and ever so pleased to have visited. The house is fascinating (check out the old kitchen and be grateful for modern appliances

Oasis in South Yarra

A little bit of country in the city. The gardens here provide a lovely retreat just a short walk from the wonderful shopping strip of Torak.

Mansion from a more gacious time

When the truly rich built houses to match their wealth, they built mansions like Como. Como has a view over the river flats to the Yarra River. The rich lived grandly. The notion that the young women should do housework was abhorrent. T

A great zoo to visit! Lots of animals and very varied spaces. Large zoo which mean crowds were spread out which is great, always got a good view of the animals. Recommend the expert talks as these very very informative and interesting

Good day out

Loved the zoo. Well set out and planned you don’t backtrack at all. Good that there are more than one place to get something to eat though would be expensive for families. You got to see most of the animals

Always a favourite

Easy access car & public transport. Great place for picnic meeting friends. Dino Park Good. Best is orang-utans & gorillas.

A great day at the zoo

The zoo has changed vastly since I last attended. Really impressed with the development of enclosures. More realistic habitats that really amazed my daughter.

Melbourne has some beautiful gardens. Botanical and the annual Garden Festival in Carlton Gardens is worth seeing.

A Special Place

Barkly Gardens, so handy for us to visit, have been kept in excellent condition by City of Yarra for a long, long time. The planting of new trees, landscaping of the central area and the general quality of the maintenance is outstanding,

The Playground has recently been upgraded and great for primary aged kids. Good BBQs and very close to the yarra river bike trail.

Old style gardens with modern playground

Great garden hidden away in backstreet of Richmond down by yarra river. Quite a large garden with beautiful old trees. Also close to the Yarra trail

One of Melbourne's inner suburban parks- an attractive option

Melbourne is full of small and medium sized parks that are one of the best features of the city. Barkly Gardens is one of these in the increasingly popular and now very trendy suburb of Richmond. There is nothing particularly special about this little park

Dame Nellie Melba Memorial Park

Address: Coppin StreetRichmond, Yarra, Victoria 3121, Australia

Not bad, but there are better options nearby

A cute little park, and I'm sure a handy location for locals to sit and reflect, however if you've got a canine companion, there are far superior dog friendly parks not so far away.

'Local hangout'

This is a wonderful little park, which during the summer many of the locals catch up in. It's well maintained and a very pleasant spot to sit in the grass and relax on a sunny day. The road is a little busy but never-the-less quite

Celebrating a Richmond super-star

Dame Nellie Melba is said to be the world's first super-star. This celebrated grand diva was the toast of the operatic world at the turn of the 20th century. She was a Richmond native, as this park attests.The park is neat and well kept, 

Great place to bring the kiddies on a sunny day

Lovely park off church st that the kids will love. If you someone who loves laying in the sun reading a book than this park is for you.
