Alexandra Gardens

The Alexandra Gardens are set out on five hectares of land off St Kilda Road, at the foot of Princes Bridge between the Yarra River and Alexandra Avenue. They are close to the banks of the Yarra River. This area became the traditional setting for the annual Henley on the Yarra rowing regatta, and boathouses used by rowing clubs are visible to one side of the gardens.

The garden's main feature is a star-shaped flowerbed. Another feature is the Henley Lawn, which is surrounded by Canary Island palms. Also within the gardens are numerous walking paths, ornamental gardens with palms and shrubs borders, large areas of parklands with mature trees, barbeque faciltiies and bicycle hire.
