Having an hour to kill I decided a walk was in order. Melbourne was putting on its famous autumnal weather and the gardens were nearby. My last visit was a school excursion so not very exiting as a kid.
However, as an adult there is much to recommend about a leisurely stroll around the park.

It is a magnificent Victorian era garden that demonstrates the young states wealth and vision of our founders. Nicely preserved, lined with Elms, it is a tranquil place that is so close to the city. Prefect for your morning walk and coffee.

Well with the time and letting the world pass you by.

Melbourne is blessed with brilliant parks and this is no exception. We thoroughly enjoyed a walk here after a very busy day. The little Tudor village is worth a look and will delight young children. Very peaceful and well maintained park.

Well manicured and looked after gardens slightly out of city centre but well worth a look... very quiet and peaceful with some interesting sites.

We crossed busy Lansdowne Street from Treasury Gardens to visit the much-bigger Fitzroy Gardens, which sprawl over 64 acres. We ambled through the Southwest quadrant of this space en route to yet another garden. Tall trees and big grassy areas make a major contribution to this area. Many visitors sat under the trees to get relief from the blazing afternoon sun or sprawled on the grass to soak up the rays.

As an architecture buff, I liked the adobe-colored Conservatory building here because of its Spanish-mission style. It also features beautiful flowers inside. The well-crafted statue that decorates the fountain at the front entrance depicts Diana and the hounds.

Further along the paved path, we came to Cooks' Cottage, billed as the oldest building in Australia and a tourist attraction. It initially went up in the 1600s in England. A magnificent Moreton Bay fig tree towers at one side of the cottage, and a visitor center, where we got useful information, stands across from the cottage about a 1-minute walk away. It has merchandise for sale and offers details about the gardens and Melbourne. A cafe shares this building's space.

For garden enthusiasts, who would like to explore the entire acreage, a map on-line shows the location of recommended stops. The gardens can be reached in about 20 minutes on foot from Federation Square and are near the Melbourne Cricket Club.

Beautiful grounds and a great way to spend an afternoon. Sunny and shady spots available. This would be a good place to take a Christmas Card photo!
