Welcome to Melbourne Uni paradise! (System Garden)

So much greenery!

This is one of the reasons why I LOVE going to Melbourne Uni.

System Garden: Perhaps THE most beautiful spot on campus. It’s perfectly concealed and hidden away from the public eye, and I always hide here when things get too crazy at uni.

Not only it is ‘pretty’, it also serves a greater function in the scientific community as the plants are planted according to their evolutionary system of classification. Therefore getting it’s name, System Garden!

It’s the perfect place for a get together with friends, to do your readings, sleep etc.

There are benches around, bins available, and those blue help phone just in case anything happens. But the grass is LOVELY to sit on :)

DID YOU KNOW that “The System Garden was designed by the University’s first Professor of Natural History, Frederick McCoy in concert with architect Edward Latrobe Bateman in 1856” (Source: Science Matters)

How does one venture to the System Garden?

Basically, if you haven’t been to the System Garden, you haven’t really experienced what it’s like to be a true MU kid. So HEAD DOWN! It is absolutely beautiful there. You will not regret it, I guarantee!
