From the south banks of the Yarra River, these extensive gardens spread for about 900 acres and feature about 10,000 species of plants from around the world. Of course there are roses and other flowers, but the gardens also include many Australian landscapes—a fern gully, forest walk, and arid garden among them. Other highlights include boating on the Ornamental Lake and the fascinating Aboriginal Heritage Walk.
