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.
