Williamstown Botanic Gardens

Cnr Osborne & Giffard Streets, Williamstown
Open 24 hours daily


Williamstown Botanic Gardens remain, along with Hamilton, Ballarat and St Kilda gardens, as a reminder of the smaller Victorian era civic gardens. Like many gardens of that time, it included enclosures for animals and birds. Unusually for today, it retains its aviary. It is no surprise that they share some aspects with the Fitzroy Gardens as they were both designed by the same man, Edward Latrobe Bateman. The gardens were established in 1860.

An unusual aspect for a garden in Victoria is the formal planting of Moreton Bay fig trees.
