    A gorgeous place with distinctive kinds of plants. You can escape the heat in summer by resting in the shade of the trees. Be sure to check out the Ornamental Lake, where you can see swans and birds.

    You can easily spend an entire day here. There is so much to see and learn. There is also some very good coffee by the front entrance.

    Can't miss in Melbourne, this was one of the best botanic gardens I've been to. Plus, it's free! Come when it's sunny and work in your tan in one of the many lawns.

    This is the home of the Titan Arum, largest unbranched cluster of flowers. About 2m tall, blossoms for 2-3 days before collapsing. Also known as the corpse flower due to its rotting smell when bloom.
