Uncover the Royal Botanic Gardens
Gifted the title ‘Royal’ from Queen Elizabeth II, the Royal Botanic Gardens has a rich history dating back to 1846. As time has gone on, the gardens’ vision has been to showcase horticulturally significant collections from Australia and abroad, provide entertainment in the gardens’ grounds, and get the local community involved in projects.
Housing over 50,000 plants (almost too many to count!), calling the gardens impressive would be an understatement. From the Southern China, Viburnum, Victorian Rare and Threatened, Southern Africa and Bamboo Collections to the Herb, California, and Arid Gardens, this is certainly a botanist’s paradise!
So much more than a garden
Whether you head along to the gardens to revel in the science of nature or to entertain the kids for an afternoon at the Children’s Garden, the Royal Botanic Gardens has something for everyone. This is also true for the night owls among us, with the Melbourne Observatory nestled in the gardens you have no excuse not to visit at night…it may even bring stars to your eyes!
For something a little extra, we recommend timing your visit during one of the many events that the gardens hosts. Once you are tired out from stargazing, science, nature and entertainment, head back to Grand Chancellor Melbourne for dinner at our on-site restaurant, Encore, or if you want a bit of privacy – why not indulge in room service?
We look forward to seeing you soon.
