Fitzroy Gardens are full of surprises. The Heritage Listed park fits into a swathe of internationally acclaimed parks and gardens within a short walk of Melbourne’s CBD.
Historic Abbotsford Convent sits on a hill by a bend in the Yarra River. On a recent trip to Melbourne, we caught one of the frequent buses which pass this historic site. We could just as easily have caught a train from Flinders Station.
The Great Petition Sculpture in Burston Reserve, Melbourne, really impressed me. It commemorates the 100th anniversary (in 2008) of female suffrage in Victoria.
Melbourne public transport is truly amazing.
