If there’s anywhere you can escape the madness of the city CBD without actually leaving it, the Royal Botanic Gardens is the place. The expansive lawns have so many spots for picnicking, whether you're looking to do so in full sun or under a tree. One of our favourite spots is at Dog Flat, which overlooks the ornamental lake. If you can't be bothered to pack your lunch, you can also grab food from the Terrace café.
Dig out your tartan rug, it's time to go picnicking! There are loads of green pockets throughout Melbourne just perfect for a picnic. After all, there's just something about eating outdoors that makes food taste that much better. From inner city parks, to secluded riverbanks and even historic homesteads, these are some of the best places to picnic in Melbourne.
Or stretch your legs with one of Melbourne's best walks instead.
