Guilfoyle’s Volcano was built in 1876 and was used to store water for the botanic gardens. After lying idle for 60 years, it was restored as part of a significant landscape development project called Working Wetlands.
This spectacular and historic water reservoir has commanding views of the city, and its striking landscape design showcases low water use plants. Boardwalks and viewing platforms give visitors the opportunity to explore this long-hidden but remarkable feature of Melbourne Gardens.
Join us on this Free ‘Just for Members’ Guided Walk by one of the RBGV’s trained Voluntary Guides and learn about the Volcano’s history and the part it plays in the RBGV’s water management programs.
