Leave the baggage of work and pressure behind you and see, feel and touch nature, in the carefree ambience of the iconic Royal Botanic Garden, situated in the heart of CBD.

With sprawling lush green gardens, a great number of grand trees, an array of colourful flowers and a glistening lake situated right in its centre, the Royal Botanic Gardens, certainly conjures up a picturesque view. Enjoy your day by taking a stroll in the park and bond with your family. You can also pack a basket of weekend breaky to satiate your taste buds while basking in the mild sunshine.

If you are a fitness freak then sweat it out on the Tan track, which is open for running, jogging and brisk walking till the midnight and enjoy working out in nature's lap. Studious ones can indulge in a bit of study and gain some practical knowledge amidst the indigenous plants and their scientific nomenclatures.

Located at stone's throw from the Royal Botanic Garden are famous landmarks of Melbourne city, such as the Shrine of Remembrance, Governor's house and Sidney Myer Musical Bowl.

Gain some insight of the history of Australia or experience a close rendezvous with nature all at absolutely no cost. If you are Inspired by the magnanimity of surroundings and yearn to whet the artist in you, then visiting the famous Art Centre, located couple of furlongs away from this garden, is a must for you.

The garden opens at 7:30 am every morning till sunset hours. Easily connected by city trams, this place offers an excellent entertainment for youth, kids and elderly people. Reconnect with nature or just a family outing – this is the most entrancing way to spend your weekend, especially when it weights not much on your pocket.
