What's not to love about the Botanical Gardens? Melbourne’s Botanic Gardens was established in 1846 by Lieutenant Governor Charles La Trobe. Over the next 60 years this swampy site was transformed into the much loved landscape we know today. Everyone seems to have a memory of the gardens, from feeding the ducks (and occasional eel) in the lakes, enjoying the gorgeous panoramic views, or sitting under a big oak tree for a family picnic.
On this walk, we will walk on the track around the outside of the Botanic Gardens, or in more familiar terms, we will do'a lap of the tan'. The circuit is 3.8km. Dogs must be on a leash at all times during this walk. Please bring plenty of water (and a drinking bowl) for you and your dog. BYO poo bags too of course. After our walk, we will reward ourselves with a coffee at the Observatory Café.
Meet on the corner of Birdwood Avenue and Dallas Brooks Drive.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
Kate and Harry (woof!)
