Lovely green oasis in Melbourne CBD. Just across the bridge is a lovely little garden with statues, lakes and tranquility. Great spot to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Backs on to other gardens too. Great place to visit.

Nestled between the Yarra River and Victoria Gardens is Alexandra Gardens. Not as large as the others but just as nice and well maintained. Along the side are a number of Melbourne’s rowing clubs. These seem to be rather busy early in the morning.

Many years ago, boatraces on the Yarra River were a crowd favourite. All that remains of the old boathouses, which are still in use. They are the most noted feature of Alexander Gardens. Alexandra Gardens are also connected to the Kings Domain and the Botanic Gardens. Best acces from the CBDs is via Princes Bridge.

If you cross Princes Bridge from the CBD going south, you can't miss the antiquated boatsheds on the Yarra's bank. The are still in use. The boatsheds are the most notable feature of Alexandra Gardens, on the Yarra's south bank. The park is also connected to the Kings Domain and the Royal Botanic Gardens. You can also access The Tan, a running track which circumambulates the Botanic Gardens.

Alexandra Gardens, Melbourne. These gardens run along the south bank of the Yarra River. They were developed in 1904. They connect you with King's Domain and the Royal Botanic Gardens. IYou are also connected with The Tan - a popular exercise track.

There are 2 paths one along the river and one further inland. You can walk along the path and watch the rowers come out of the historic rowing boat houses and row off along the river. There are plenty pf benches to sit on along the way and you can even see the Two Headed Angel sculpture on the other side of Birrarung Marr.

Most the pathways here are lined with palm trees and are a favourite spot for people to sit and watch Moomba water activities and have picnics in the warmer months [obviously pre-post current restrictions].

The stairs leading to the gardens are not steep and can be navigated with ease. There are also shared pedestrian / bike paths so that if you have mobility issues you can enter the gardens this way too. The paths themselves are mostly flat and nice for a stroll or exercise.

You can also get a nice side view of the city and a long view of the Yarra River both ways from this area. Get along to these gardens for exercise or a stroll with the allowed number of friends / family and remember to social distance.
