TREASURY GARDENS

The small and peaceful Treasury Gardens sit between Fitzroy Gardens and Spring Street in the Melbourne CBD, and are a popular venue for community events and rallies. The gardens are home to a multitude of brushtail possums that emerge from the trees to feed at dusk. Features include: The Robert Burns memorial; an ornamental pond with a monument to President John F. Kennedy; a memorial statue of Sir William Clarke; and a large embankment, home to various statues of Victorian politicians that offers views to the south.

  1. We take visitors from overseas to the Tresury Gardens at dusk with some fruit or bread so the can feed the possums. It's quite fun.

  8. My favourite photo is the mallard duck, and all the reflections surrounding her!!
    Reading your note at the beginning of the post, I had to wonder if the various Victorian politicians also come out at dusk to feed... (Sorry, but the image is just too funny)
