5 Of The Best Picnic Spots In Melbourne


The sun’s Summer rays are beaming, so pack a basket and head out to a gorgeous location with family and friends for a fun-filled picnic. Keep it healthy and pack plenty of water, chopped up fruits and veggie sticks for smart snacking options.

St Kilda Botanical Gardens

This stunning 150 year old park is well kept and will dazzle even the biggest city slickers out there with its green goodness. Why? Well it’s a much more than an ordinary park. Boasting a giant chess board (yes, we said giant), flying foxes, and plenty of shelters these gardens will bring you much joy. For all the nature-lovers, the Eco centre holds informative sustainability classes.

Edinburgh Gardens

Pack some delicious food and head off on your bicycles to enjoy a magical day on these fabulous bike paths. A skate park and table tennis mean your day will be anything but bland. There’s plenty of shade, so throw down your cute picnic rug and you’re set.

Fairfield Boathouse

Boasting an oval, pavilion and bright green soft grass, this stunning wonderland is your adult playground for the day. Looking for more than just a picturesque picnic spot? Simply hire a 19th century, British-style boat and enjoy a smooth sailing weekend picnic. We bet you haven’t done that before.

Moonlight Creek Picnic Ground

Only a 90 minute drive from East Melbourne, this romantic spot is one of cupid’s favourites. Nestled between tall forest and tree ferns, this tranquil location will set your lover’s heart on fire. Enjoy the luscious green grass and view of the creek whilst feeding that special someone romantic treats (we recommend dark chocolate coated strawberries!).

Getting to that special point in your relationship? It might be time to get down on one knee and pop the question, and this is the perfect place to do just that. With a piece of jewellery to melt to their heart and this most beautiful of locations, you’ve created a romantic concoction they won’t be able to turn down.

One Tree Hill Picnic Ground

This massive picnic area rests above the 1,000 step walk in Ferntree Gully. Don’t let the name fool you, there is an abundance of trees on display and you can take all sorts of artistic shots to boast on your Insta page later.

Going on a relaxing picnic with those close to your heart is one way you can relax your mind. But, when it comes to de-stressing your body, don’t forget eating well is key.
