Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne
The trails either side of the Yarra follow the river for substantial distances upstream, featuring many early morning scullers, lovely riverside mansions, stately trees (with appalling quantities of plastic bags suspended on their lower limbs), some nice bridges with city backdrops and nearby noisy traffic.
Apart from the occasional over-enthusiastic tree roots, a fresh wind gusting through narrow sections and a lady of Indian descent who insisted on walking right in the middle of the narrow path it was a pleasant and uneventful experience.
Fondest memory: This shot was taken on the path I retuned on which happened to be on the other side of the river.
Visit the Royal Botanical Garden right at the heart of the city...its lovely and its free!
Fondest memory: When I was going around the Botanical Garden, there were setting it up for a live staging of Midsummer Night's Dream. It would have been a great event to go to, unfortunately, I didnt stay long enough to see it.
