Royal Botanic Gardens
This green oasis in the heart of the city is one of the finest examples of Victorian-era landscaped gardens in the world. Stroll through the 38 hectares of diverse plant collections and tranquil lakes, and spot native wildlife like black swans, cockatoos and kookaburras. The popular Aboriginal Heritage Walk shows you the land through the eyes of the area's indigenous people, while other highlights include the Tropical Glasshouse and the Guilfoyle’s Volcano water reservoir.

Great Place for a Picnic
The Royal Botanic Gardens are beautiful and easy to get to. It's an easy escape from the city, where you'll be surrounded by beautiful trees and plants as well as birds. A great place to relax and soak it up—with or without the picnic.
