And My Favorite Place in Melbourne is…

The Carlton Gardens.

My place of peace in the city. I’ve noticed myself drawn here almost every day since I first discovered these gardens a little over a week ago when I first arrived.

Back in San Diego, my favorite spot was Black’s Cliffs, with views of the calming ocean tides below and the freeing paragliders above.


After spending just over a week exploring the nooks and crannies of Melbourne, I can say without a doubt that my favorite place is the Carlton Gardens.

I come here to find my happy place, to read, to write, to sit and be inspired by the simple things in life.

I like the fact that I’m surrounded by lush greenery, and a feeling of peace amidst the skyscrapers and busy pace of the city outside my little bubble in the gardens.







My oasis is the Carlton Gardens.
