The Royal Botanic Gardens
When you need a break from all the laneways and urbanscapes, skip over to the sprawling Royal Botanic Gardens. 38 hectares of landscaped gardens feature more than 10,000 species of native and exotic flora species. On sunny days locals tend to gather on the grassy slopes that surround the ornamental lake, or trot around The Tan (a 3.8km walking track that goes around the Gardens and past the striking Shrine of Remembrance). But, if you are a first-time visitor, be sure to explore the Australian Forest area, Trigg Point Lookout, and the Rockpool Waterway. Families will also love the interactive Children’s Garden.
