Tan Track


Tan Track

No visit to Melbourne is complete without a walk, jog or run around Melbourne's iconic 'Tan Track', a 3.8km track around King's Domain and the Botanic Gardens.

Commonly and affectionately known locally as the TAN, it is officially termed the Tan Track. The TAN name (in dispute) comes from either.. a surface of TAN-coloured stone aggregate, because its around the boTANic gardens or it once was covered bv TAN bark.

The Tan was originally a horse track for Melbourne's well-heeled but today is one of Melbourne's most frequented locations. Locals, visitors and famous alike now share the space as its international reputation has grown.

Go the Tan


February | - The annual GO THE TAN run provides the opportunity for participants to run, jog or walk around the Tan and receive an official time.
All proceeds from Go The Tan will go to FARA – Friedreich Ataxia Research Association.

The quickest lap of the Tan is 10 minutes and 12 seconds, run by Craig Mottram in 2004.
