• Melbourne Botanic Garden

    4th November 2014Places to VisitStephanie Donaldson

    We paid a brief visit to the botanic garden in central Melbourne which is much more traditional in style and features many non-native plants. This is hardly surprising as it was established at a time when many of Melbourne’s residents wanted to be reminded of where they had come from, rather than where they now lived. There was a wonderfully weird mixture of plants with aeoniums and strelitzia in full flower cheek by jowl with daffodils and camellias!
