Melbourne: Edinburgh Gardens
Get There: Head up to Brunswick Street in Fitzroy North
Summers in Melbourne are short but sweet. If you get down to Edinburgh Gardens in these months, you’ll find people partying super hard in the park, with proper speaker systems, heaps of booze and perhaps even some illicit substances. In fact, it’s got a rep for getting pretty trashy at times. With its close proximity to Brunswick Street, Eddie Gardens is a ripe spot to pound afternoon drinks before a night out, similarly to Camperdown Park in Sydney (but any Melburnian can tell you that their park and city shit all over anything in Sydney).
The heart of Melbourne’s north side, Edinburgh gardens isn’t just a party, it’s also a great place to chill, read a book, play some Frisbee or have a picnic. It even has public ping-pong tables.
