The Flagstaff Gardens have been reserved as parklands since 1862, and today the stretches of lawn are the lunch spot of choice for local office workers.

Along with those popular lawns, the gardens feature eucalypts and Moreton Bay figs, avenues of elm trees, a bowling lawn, rose beds, tennis courts, sculptures and electric barbecues.

The park is named for the flagstaff erected on this hilly location in 1840, part of a signalling system between the burgeoning town of Melbourne and ships sailing into port.
