Alexandra Gardens

Alexandra Gardens

Alexandra Gardens are set out on five hectares of land off St Kilda Road, at the foot of Princes Bridge between the Yarra River and Alexandra Avenue.

On the south bank of the Yarra River, the Alexandra Gardens connect to Kings Domain, the Domain parklands and the landscaped Royal Botanic Gardens.

First laid out in 1904, the gardens' most notable feature is the line of historic rowing boathouses lining the Yarra River.

The gardens' palm trees, ornamental shrubs and tree-lined avenues merge with the Royal Botanic Gardens, and its star-shaped garden bed is designed to represent the Federation of Australia.

Get in early to nab one of the gardens' riverfront barbecues, popular venues for alfresco office Christmas parties and Moomba celebrations.

Alexandra Gardens are part of a larger group of parklands directly south-east of the city, between St. Kilda Road and the Yarra River known as the Domain Parklands, which includes;

Royal Botanic Gardens
Kings Domain

Alexandra Gardens
Queen Victoria Gardens

Melbourne is well known for the Boathouses in Alexandra Gardens that can be viewed from across the Yarra River.
