The Tan, officially known as the Tan Track, circumambuates the Royal Botanic Gardens. It's a testing run, of around 2 1/2 miles (around 3.8 kms). Professional sportsmen run with part-time joggers. There's no pressure, set your own pace. The Gardens are just across Princes Bridge south of the city, it's an easy walk from the CBD, ask your concierge for details. There are many things to do in the Gardens, but the Tan is popular with runners..The current record is 10 minutes for men, 11 minutes for women.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this review. We are often told by many of our visitors that they come to simply relax and unwind. Next time you join us you might like to visit the Wellbeing Gardens, located within Fern Gully, which have been designed for small groups and individuals to visit and find a restful and restoring space (check for opening details due to COVID19 restrictions) .

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review of your experience with us. The gardens put on quite a floral display during the summertime with the Perennial Border in full bloom, Water Lillies on Nymphea Lake and the Lotus flowers on Ornamental Lake. We feel very fortunate every summer and would love to welcome you back during another season to experience a different garden highlight such as the colorful Oak Lawn in Autumn or the Southern China Collection in Winter when smells of the pink and white plum trees blossom - it is a real treat for your senses.

Although we visited during the early days and outbreak of covid19, it was really lovely and peaceful to walk around. Lovely views over Melbourne and stunning plants and scenery. Time to chill out from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Thank you so much for taking your time to leave us a positive review. The gardens really are peaceful and a great way to spend your time whilst in Melbourne. A visitor favorite is the views of Melbourne city from the highest point at Guilfoyle's Volcano. We would like to welcome you back anytime you are Melbourne.
