Relax and Play


By Sandra Iskander

While visiting Melbourne one of the best things to do is to take advantage of its beautiful gardens, it is after all the capital of Australia’s Garden State. One private garden worth visiting is that on the grounds of the Mansion Hotel & Spa at Werribee Park. The hotel, which was once a private mansion, is a beautiful 5-star hotel sitting in the midst of 4 hectares of gorgeous greenery. If you are not staying at the hotel book yourself in for a relaxing massage at the spa, I recommend the Wave of Relaxation massage, the house’s signature massage that will have your muscles soothed, leaving you blissfully relaxed and giving you access to the estate’s manicured grounds. After your treatment make your way to the gardens and enjoy a leisurely walk through the grounds, not forgetting to stop to smell the roses.
