  • Just fabulous to get out & about in Melbourne again & Kings Domain has easy access via public transport - trams, trains etc. I attended a recent Concert at Sidney Myer Music Bowl - just fantastic.
  • I recently visited Kings Domain Park in Melbourne, and was thoroughly impressed. The park was well-maintained and had an abundance of lush, green vegetation. I was especially taken with the wide range of plant life and trees, which created a peaceful atmosphere. Additionally, the park had plenty of benches and tables, making it an ideal spot for a picnic lunch. There were also plenty of activities, such as walking and jogging trails, a playground, and a lake with a bridge, which made for a pleasant afternoon. The park is conveniently located in the city and is easily accessible, making it a great spot for a casual stroll or a longer outing. Overall, I had a wonderful experience at Kings Domain Park and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful, beautiful place to spend some time.
