st kilda botanical gardens, st kilda

There are so many adventures waiting to be had at these idyllic gardens. From the conservatory with it's ponds and pathways, the rose garden and huge hedges and of course the playground with old school play equipment bringing Mamma back to her childhood days.  You could easily spend the whole day here with some rest and picnic time thrown in.

Mamma's special mention: For a sugary before-or-after-play treat head down Blessington to nearby Acland Street and to it's famous old cake shops like Monarchs Cakes, Europa and Le Bon. C'EST YUM!
