The Treasury Gardens is a public park located in the heart of Melbourne's central business district. Established in the mid-19th century, it is one of Victoria's oldest and most beautiful public gardens. It is also a part of the Spring Street government building precinct, making it easily accessible to visitors to Victoria's Parliament House.
The garden's landscape is adorned with pathways lined with mature trees, creating a unique "cathedral" or "tunnel" effect. The lush greenery is a mix of evergreen foliage from conifers, palms, and Moreton Bay Figs, contrasted by deciduous elms, oaks, and poplars.
In addition to its beautiful landscape, the gardens are also home to various landmarks, including a Robert Burns memorial, an ornamental pond with a monument to President John F Kennedy, and a memorial statue of Sir William Clarke. Visitors can also admire a large embankment adorned with statues of Victorian politicians.
The garden is perfect for a relaxing walk or picnic with friends and family, with plenty of open spaces and shaded areas to enjoy. It's a great place to unwind after a busy day exploring Melbourne's bustling city centre.
