Kings Domain Gardens Tours

1 Review
The Kings Domain Gardens are a free, soothing retreat from the whirling energy of the nearby city centre.

Within Melbourne’s Domain Parklands, the Kings Domain is well placed to take a relaxing wander through hectares of natural peace. Visitors can enjoy lush lawns perfect for napping upon, spread picnics beneath mature trees, and wander into a fern gully of serene green.
 
The Kings Domain Gardens border onto the Royal Botanical Gardens, and there are multiple gardens within the Kings Domain area. The Queen Victoria Garden features roses, manicured flower beds and a statue of the monarch after which is it named. The Alexandra Gardens skirts the Yarra River and Alexandra Avenue, and features some barbecue areas with impressive city line views.  

Practical Info:

The Kings Domain is located just off St Kilda Road, and is about 20 minutes walking from either Southbank or Flinders Street Station. You can also drive and park in time-restricted street parking, or reach the Kings Domain area by taking a five minute tram ride from the Flinders Street Station to the Domain Interchange (routes 3, 5, 8, 16, 64, 67 will get you there).

Although the King’s Domain Gardens offer a natural wonderland of its own, visitors can also take advantage of neighbouring attractions, including the Royal Botanic Gardens, Shrine of Remembrance, Government House, the Observatory, La Trobe’s Cottage and Sidney Myer Music Bowl.
