Bask in Beauty

Among Melbourne's many attractions is one of the world's most respected botanical gardens, nourished by the city's temperate plant-friendly climate. Forged out of raw swampland back in the 1840s, the Royal Botanic Gardens today dazzle the eye, the nose, and the aesthetic sensibilities with nearly 100 acres of wildly varied greenery. Better than 8,500 species of trees, shrubs, and other plants call the place home. Highlights include the cacti, agaves, and other dryland delights of the Arid Garden, the impossibly lush Fern Gully, and the verdant rainforest display of the Tropical Glasshouse.
