Celebrate the Duke and Duchess’ visit at Melbourne Gardens
This Thursday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will visit Government House.
To celebrate, Melbourne Gardens has a number of regal and rousing activities so that visitors can live it up like a royal.
Walk the corgis like a royal
Grab your pooch and come along to the Gardens for a royal meander. Melbourne Gardens is dog friendly, and in the beautiful surrounds you could be forgiven for thinking that you are touring your own royal estate.
Dine like a royal – High Tea at The Terrace
Sit back and sip a cup of tea in fine china, while dining on petite sandwiches, hot savouries and sweet treats at High Tea at The Terrace. Just $55 each, sessions run at 11am or 1pm.
Bookings are essential, visit The Terrace or call 9820 9590.
Take a free Royal Tree Walk
This Thursday 18 October, Melbourne Gardens is offering a special Royal Tree Walk. This tour visits the many special trees planted by royals who have previously visited the Gardens, including Queen Elizabeth II.
Meet at the Visitor Centre for a 10.30am departure.
Glide like a royal
Pick a pleasure punt from just outside The Terrace tearooms, close your eyes, lie back and enjoy the ride. You could be a Duchess or Duke on the lake at Balmoral Castle, while your humble punter shunts you along in your private elegant wooden boat.
To book: visit Punting on the Lake or call 0481 455 410.
