Start off your walk from the south side of the Yarra and slowly work your way down through the beautiful park. Pack a blanket and some good food and park yourself down near Lake Royal. There is a little cafe near to where the gondolas are but it is very expensive so save your buck and pack your own food. Great for dates, with friends or with the kids, just pack a frisbee or a footy ball and hang out in the sun. On your way out of the garden swing by the Shrine of Remembrance for some great views of the city.
