World heritage-listed Carlton Gardens are at the epicentre of this inner-city precinct.
This UNESCO World Heritage Site, with its sparkling fountains, sweeping lawns, ornamental lakes and stately trees, has a special place in Melbourne’s history. The Royal Exhibition Buildings were designed for the Melbourne International Exhibition in 1880 and were home to Australia’s first national parliament in 1901. The Melbourne Museum and IMAX cinema, with the world’s largest cinema screen, also call the Carlton Gardens home.
A tribute to the vision of our forefathers, Melbourne’s beautifully tended parks encircle the city with green.
This tranquil garden setting comes with a host of convenient city connections.
If you’re heading out to shop or dine, work or play, transport options are just a short stroll away. It’s an easy walk to Melbourne Central or Parliament train stations. Both are part of Melbourne’s underground loop, providing links to take you around or away from the city. The Victoria Street and Spring Street tram and bus stops are also close by.
CONSERVATORY’s location puts you within easy reach of Melbourne’s best dining experiences.
Seemingly endless choices pamper the palate with eateries lining unassuming laneways, cool bars, artsy cafes and fine dining in modern establishments.

This is a city that’s home to some of the world’s most celebrated chefs in the likes of Andrew McConnell (owner and chef of Cumulus Inc and Cutler & Co) and Shannon Bennett (head chef at Vue de Monde). You’ll be pampered by the best the culinary world has to offer.
