Hello, I created this blog because Melbourne is my city and I want people to see what a beautiful place it is. So come with me on a journey of discovery as we traverse the dining precincts, the culture, the laneways and hidden gems that make Melbourne marvellous.

Cockington Green



See the world at Cockington Green Gardens
This beautiful Tudor Cottage is the setting of one of the lovelest gardens with meticulously crafted miniature buildings of many famous places around the world. Set in landscaped gardens, with bridges and hedges, you could easily spend a happy half a day here as you step into another world.

See the blue domed St. Andrig church, a famous Ukrainian landmark which stands high above the Podil district of Kyiv,or the Borodudur Temple of Indonesia, or Groote Constantia from South Africa. Marvel at the mysteries of Stonehenge, be captured by the Traki Castle from Lithuania, built by the Grand Duke Vytautas Magnus in 1405, and stand at the Lahore Gate - the Red Fort of Agra. In this international section of the gardens, there are 31 buildings, castles and monuments to feast your eyes upon.

And after seeing these wonderful buildings, pop into the "Parsons Nose Garden Café" for a nice hot cup of tea and some tasty scones or sandwiches.

Looks like a truly great way to spend a Saturday or Sunday afternoon with the family. And finish with a tea and scone or two ...
