Time Out Melbourne

As one of the most famous and easily recognisable people in modern history, perhaps it shouldn’t be that much of a surprise that all around the world JFK Memorials are places of peace and reflection. Located in the Treasury Gardens, the Victorian Memorial to John Kennedy was constructed in 1965. Far from being just a constructed garden, the surrounding lake here dates back to 1867, giving the area a sense of natural beauty as well.
