Victoria Esplanade

Lonely Planet review

Victoria Esplanade is a riverbank park. Mooch around the adventure playground, aviary, conservatory, bike trails, walkways, the Esplanade Scenic Railway or just chill out on the lawns. The Dugald MacKenzie Rose Garden , once voted among the world’s top five loveliest gardens, brings tears of pride to local eyes, and there’s a permanent orienteering course here too. Pick up a map from the park cafe or i-SITE.
