Brunswick Street on a busy Saturday afternoon and you’re shopping until you drop.
Give yourself a break – feed your soul for a moment? Duck into the Fitzroy Nursery – The Artists Gardens at 390 Brunswick Street.
Listen to the fountains playing, gaze at the lush plants, take in the garden art and find a spot to linger. It’s a haven from the vibrant life on the street and the art is fun.
The garden art on display is sourced locally but some comes from further a field. The animal sculptures are from New Zealand. They’re made of all-weather re-cycled corrugated iron.
If you come from the land of The Long White Cloud you may want to add one of these to your household. They all have their own unique personality and there is nothing like a touch of nostalgia for corrugated iron.
Fitzroy Nursery is at 390 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy. Take the no 112 Tram from the CBD.
If you are coming from St Kilda stay on the 96 tram and get off along Nicholson Street at Rose Street and wander along Rose Street to Brunswick Street.
