Eden in Melbourne.

Take in the original architecture of Guilfoyle's Volcano and picnic on the banks of the ornamental lake. One feels like a tropical explorer amid the luxurious plant life in the tropical greenhouses. Other points of interest include the National Herbarium and the Melbourne Observatory.
