One of the first thing I fell in love with in Melbourne is the abundance of green parks and gardens scattered throughout the city. It seems they just pop up around every corner. It's so lovely to sit under the big old trees and feel a million miles away, lying on the grass daydreaming.... (I always feel like I'm in Ferngully....remember that cartoon?)
My favorites are the treasury gardens and the fitzroy gardens. I love the big old trees just begging to be climbed, and I love being able to see the tops of the buildings poking out through the leaves.
