Domain Parklands history

Domain Parklands history: heritage, horticulture and society

Our city is reshaping and demands on the Domain Parklands and its assets are growing and changing. As the City of Melbourne is about to review its Domain Parklands Master Plan it’s time to celebrate the rich history, look to the future and hear what you have to say.

Join our panel of experts as they take you from the earliest days through to recent times and discuss aspects of history, horticulture, plantings and garden design.  Learn how the landscape was civilised and discover the nature of evolving civil and civic functions. Historian Professor Andrew May from the University of Melbourne will lead the panel to unpack the past.  Keep in touch for an update on panellists.
