The bright and sunny, albeit a little chilly, weather we've been experiencing in Melbourne beckoned me to get out and look at one of the first public gardens opened in Melbourne.

[ADVERT]From the first steps through the heavy, decorative iron gates of Williamstown Botanic Gardens I was entranced. The carefully maintained beds were a filled with a delightful mix of plants which showcase the types of plants that grow well in our climate.

I was particularly impressed with the elegant palm avenue leading through the park and out to the Parker Reserve Pinetum, a collection of stately pine trees, and also the pond that has recently been restored to original condition.

Semi-secluded copses amongst the shrubs and open, grassy areas all cry out for a picnic rug to be spread out for people to enjoy a bit of nature so close to the city.
