Royal botanic garden is located in Melbourne city along the Yarra river. There is no entrance fee and open 365 days a year.
There are some public transport or shuttle to the botanic garden, however, I choose to walk to the garden enjoying the nice cooling weather. You can easily spend half a day in the garden with your families member or loved one. The garden is pretty big with lakes, trees, and flower. There is also a section with cactus too.
I came in the right season where flowers were blooming, throughout the garden and birds are singing in the air.
