No visit to Melbourne is complete without a walk, jog or run around Melbourne's iconic 'Tan Track', a 3.8km track which circumvents King's Domain and the Botanic Gardens.

Officially termed the Tan Track as it has a surface of Tan-coloured stone aggregate, it is more commonly and affectionately known as the Tan. Others say it comes from the boTANic gardens.

The Tan was originally a horse track for Melbourne's well-heeled but today is one of Melbourne's most frequented locations. Locals, visitors and famous alike now share the space as its international reputation has grown.
