Flagstaff Gardens

Originally known as Burial Hill – many of Melbourne’s early settlers ended up here – Flagstaff Gardens were Melbourne’s first public gardens and once served as a signalling station for ships arriving from Britain. With open lawns, mature trees (including several lovely Moreton Bay fig trees and avenues of elms), a rose garden, public barbecues and tennis/netball/handball/volleyball courts, it is a lovely space in which to enjoy some time out from the city bustle. Bounded by William, Latrobe, King and Dudley sts; (03) 9658 9658 or for sports bookings (03) 9663 5888.
