Alexandra Gardens (Central Melbourne)




On the south bank of the Yarra River, the Alexandra Gardens connect to Kings Domain, the Domain parklands and the landscaped Royal Botanic Gardens.

First laid out in 1904, the gardens’ most notable feature is the line of historic rowing boathouses lining the Yarra River.

The gardens’ palm trees, ornamental shrubs and tree-lined avenues merge with the Royal Botanic Gardens, and its star-shaped garden bed is designed to represent the Federation of Australia.

Get in early to nab one of the gardens' popular riverfront barbecues.

Review:


A nice area to wander about which is close to Federation Square. There are areas of lawn, palm trees and gardens plus the boatsheds often offer lots of activity at certain times of the day. You can often peep through a doorway into the boat sheds and see the very long, thin boats. At the far end is a Skate Park where it can be nice to while away some time watching the skaters doing tricks of varying difficulty.
