This park is lovely as a quick shortcut in the day on your way through to Vic Markets or CBD. However this place really comes alive at night with its abundance of Possoms - they are actually really tame and take food from the night...More

I have many trips to the Melbourne Central Business District. These gardens are awesome. Sun filled with great lawns and tree covered shade. A great place for a break or just to contemplate.

the gardens are superbly well kept. friendly possums prance around these cute, furry and comical creatures prance around the garden and peeps out from the trees at the many passer bys. worth a nice stroll if you are headed to queen victoria market.

Daytime provides a welcome break from work/sightseeing but evening is enchanted, with the squirrels coming out to play. Take some crusts and feed the little critters right there in Latrobe Street. Magical.

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
