The Friends of Victoria Gardens was formed in 1987. We are a group interested in the history, plants and landscape design of the Victoria Gardens. Our activities include supporting Stonnington Council in the restoration and management of the historic gardens, advocacy to ensure the protection of the historic gardens, garden walks and participation in the annual Spring into Gardening event.
The Victoria Gardens were designed in 1885 by William Sangster, a well known gardener and nurseryman of the firm Taylor and Sangster and are named after the wife of the Mayor, George W Taylor. On Friday 7 August 1885 the Victoria Gardens were named and formally dedicated for public use by Lady Loch, wife of the Governor of Victoria. In 1888 Cr Taylor presented to the City a Fountain, Statue of Victory, and vases in terracotta, which were imported from Europe for £300.
Located on High Street in Prahran 3181, between Lewisham road North & Trinian street. The Gardens are open to all.
