Just across the road from the National Art Gallery, sits the Queen Victoria Gardens and The Floral Clock. A colourful display, The Floral Clock is one of Melbourne City’s most popular landmarks — gifted to the city in 1966 by a group of Swiss watchmakers.
Although not commonly used for wedding ceremonies due to the close proximity of traffic, this location is used for photography opportunities. The city landscape makes for an interesting and unique wedding photo backdrop. Though well maintained throughout the year, the gardens are most colourful in the warmer months.
Pathways help with wheelchair access, and public toilets can be found at the National Art Gallery. There are no accessible toilets within the actual gardens. Parking is available on St Kilda Road, Alexandra Avenue, or Linlithgow Avenue — though parking fees may apply.
