Though I didn’t spend very long in Melbourne, I did do a lot of walking around and exploring and I really enjoyed discovering some of the Melbourne parks and gardens. I especially came across two that stood out – the huge Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, a real delight, lots of walking paths, lakes, open cinema, cafes, etc. A bit further down south at the outskirts of Melbourne were the St Kilda Botanical Gardens which I visited after the lovely St Kilda beach, and there was a nice hippie vibe to that whole area which was also reflected in the communal gardens.
