If the thought of endless walking and sightseeing on foot doesn't appeal to you, why not put your feet up altogether and take a cruise around the picturesque Ornamental Lake in Melbourne’s stunning Royal Botanic Gardens...in a gondola!! Well actually, in a 'punt' not a gondola, but close enough that if you squint your eyes a bit its almost the same thing! But Melbourne has one up on Venice, on your cruise you'll be able to take in the stunning landscape and natural beauty of...trees! Lots of them in fact, and your punter will tell you all about them and the history of the gardens on your half-hour cruise, you wont get that in Venice!
