Forest Therapy at Melbourne Gardens


Originating from Japan, shinrin-yoku, or forest therapy, is a preventative health practice that immerses your senses in nature. This guided wellbeing experience will bolster your mental and physical health by reducing stress levels, regulating pulse and blood pressure and elevating your mood. 

Recognised as a public health practice in Asia and Europe, forest therapy is gaining global acclaim as an evidence-based, cost-effective and natural remedy – a ‘green prescription’ for a healthier you. Surround yourself with biodiversity from across the globe at Melbourne Gardens.

Bringing sunscreen and mosquito repellent is strongly advised for all outdoor activities.
