CONSERVATORY, FITZROY GARDENS

One of Melbourne's favourite tourist attractions, the Conservatory opened on the 13th of March 1930, over 80 years of providing spectacular floral displays. 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.

  3. I was a bit worried about Spanish mission architecture in Melbourne, but it turned out well. And the five separate displays each year are stunning.
