JANE’S WALKS: FOR THE LOVE OF TREES
Treasury Gardens, corner of Lansdowne Street and Wellington Parade.
2-18, 2-18 Spring St, East Melbourne VIC 3002, Australia
Trees are gorgeous nurturing features of our cities, and often under-appreciated until we really stop to enjoy them, or miss them when they are gone. I have always loved trees, but as time goes on I value and appreciate them more and more. On this walk whilst taking people past some of my favourite trees, I will share information about Melbourne’s beautiful urban canopy, how the urban forest team in Melbourne are managing trees and green space, and let people know how they could get involved.
Meander from Treasury Gardens to Birragang Marr taking in some wonderful Melbourne treasures and vistas.
Take the opportunity to explore Fitzroy Gardens and Treasury Gardens before Jane's Walk. There is a cafe and visitors centre near Cooks' Cottage. The walk is suitable for people of all ages, including with strollers, dogs on lead etc, noting that there are some gravel surfaces along the river.
Check the weather forecast and come prepared.
