Photographer's Note

A sequel to my posting Waiting for the off. People engaged in the climate change demonstration and march in Melbourne are now relaxing in Treasury Gardens waiting for the post-march speeches and entertainment to start.

The Treasury Gardens provide a tranquil green edge to Spring Street and make a picturesque transition to the larger Fitzroy Gardens, just over Lansdowne Street.

Community events and rallies are held here, and at night a large colony of brushtail possums come out to play.

Other features include a Robert Burns memorial; an ornamental pond with a monument to President John F Kennedy; a memorial statue of Sir William Clarke; and a large embankment dotted with statues of Victorian politicians.

Information on the Treasury Gardens taken from the Whats on in Melbourne web site.
