The best picnic spots in Melbourne

Harper's Bazaar Australia has listed their Top 7 places to enjoy a picnic in the warmer months.

Topping the list (naturally) is the Royal Botanic Gardens, a hugely popular choice with locals and tourists alike. Coming in a close second is the St Kilda Botanical Gardens with its rose garden and greenhouse adding to the appeal. Ex-monastery Abbotsford Convent also made the cut, along with well-known city green space Treasury Gardens and the lush Carlton Gardens, just 5 minutes north of the CBD.

Other popular picnic spots include the stunning manicured gardens of Werribee Park and the expansive Como Gardens in South Yarra.
