Unbelievably beautiful and almost fairytale like garden. It's a great place to get away from the busy city life. There are also many beautiful birds and interesting plants to look at. No tickets are needed for this place and it is free to enter. So if you are travelling Melbourne on a budget you should definitely consider this!👍

Fall is perhaps not the prettiest time of the year in terms of floral scenes but at such a carefully manicured botanical garden there is something to offer at any time of the year. I took a morning walk in the pleasant pathways there, and took some special time in its Gardens House and Observatory, both of which are heritage sites. The scenery was very pleasant in the crisp autumn air of Melbourne. I do highly recommend the Royal Botanic Gardens to be a nice detour from the usual city activities. The War Shrine is also nearby.

The garden is amazing. Many smaller thematic gardens with well maintain paths. There are plenty of benches to rest, you can also take a boat and have a nice ride along the lake. Definitely recommend!

Absolutely beautiful place. There are so many different trees from all over the world. We went on a weekend and the parking was an issue, we had to drive around twice before we found a parking spot. Will definitely go back

The Royal Botanic Gardens were one of my favorite spots in Melbourne. Such a beautiful oasis of greenery amidst the city – just perfect. The gardens are impeccably maintained and beautifully landscaped. It's the ideal place to get lost among the foliage, have a picnic, take a leisurely stroll – you name it. The gardens are vast, and you could easily spend the whole day there. A must-visit if you're in Melbourne.
