SPRING IN THE CONSERVATORY

One of Melbourne's favourite tourist attractions, the Conservatory in the Fitzroy Gardens opened on the 13th of March 1930. For over 80 years now it has been providing spectacular floral displays, all year round.

The building copies the Spanish mission architectural style, measuring 30 x 15 metres and originally costing 4,000 pounds. The Conservatory is a vital part of the City's commitment to excellence in horticulture. There are five separate displays each year. It is visited by tourists, schools, families and anyone who wants to capture a moment of floral beauty.

Showing now are spectacular displays of Cineraria and Cyclamens.

  1. I have lived in Melbourne for 80% of my adult life and have never been to the Conservatory in the Fitzroy Gardens *hangs head in shame*. The front looks very different from other Melbourne buildings of the same age - really lovely!
