The Best Picnic Spots in Melbourne

Posted by Adam McDonald on

Melbourne Picnic

Being from NSW, I love it when I get to visit Victoria as there are s many cool pockets to explore, especially around Melbourne, where there are endless number of places to enjoy a picnic with friends and family.

I think the thing I enjoy the most about Melbourne, being from a coastal area, is the amount of amazing parks and gardens which make a nice change from the beach picnic that I am accustomed to.

Melbourne Picnic Spots

Below are a list of must see picnic spots in and around Melbourne that are definitely worth a visit. I have ranked them in postcodes to make it easier to plan a visit around your greater plans and when the family and I hit the road fr out big picnic lap next year, I will be sure to review as many of these picnic spots and update this blog to add my thoughts on each.
