St Kilda Botanical Gardens
The site of the St Kilda Botanical Gardens were established in the 1800's. The municipal council petitioned the Department of Lands and Survey to make this segment of land bordered by Dickens Street, Tennyson Street and Blessington Street a Botanic Garden.
The gardens were formally established in 1859 when a boundary fence was erected. By 1907 significant donations of money and plant material had led to the establishment of a rosary, extensive flower beds and a nursery. Exotic forest trees were planted during the 1870s and Australian species were included in 1932.
Friends and Volunteers
The gardens have a dedicated friends group, whose aim is to support and volunteer to work in the gardens.
For further information on the Friends of St Kilda Botanical Gardens meetings, events, newsletter, joining and volunteering visit their website.
Between sunrise and sunset seven days a week and the conservatory is open between 10.30am and 3.30pm week days and from dawn to dusk Saturday to Sunday and public holidays.
