This is a great, somewhat large park in the middle of Melbourne. We went as tourists from a cruise ship on a beautiful, warm Summer's day and the jacaranda trees were in bloom. It is a little oasis from the hustle and bustle of central...More

Passed by this beautiful garden on my way to Queen Victoria market from my hotel. I visited Melbourne in spring and there were lots of gorgeous, colourful flowers in this garden. A nice place to relax as there were plenty of benches.

Nice spot on a nice day if you are at that end of the city. There are also coffee places in the area during the week. Not as wide a choice if it is a weekend.

Just across the road from Flagstaff Metro station, it is well treed and grassed, with gardens, toilets, a bowling green and views towards the old docks. On a hot day you can lay down on the grass under the large trees and rest. A real...More

A park connected to Melbourne's very early history, near Queen Victoria markets. Large shady trees, grassy areas, wide paths and pleasant city-scape views. A memorial to some of Melbourne's original settlers who were buried within the park grounds. A nearby relocated Anglican church originally built...More

This park is lovely as a quick shortcut in the day on your way through to Vic Markets or CBD. However this place really comes alive at night with its abundance of Possoms - they are actually really tame and take food from the night...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
