Garden Nature / Park
Gigantic Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne sits on 145 hectares (360 acres). The landscaping is designed to accommodate interactive displays that let you walk through garden areas, cross over wetlands, and even play in water features. See large areas of native bush, heath, and other plants as well as contemporary sculptures. The red earth section brings the outback into the suburbs. You will see lots of birdlife, butterflies, and maybe even a wallaby. One area warns you to beware of snakes, so you might see one of those too. Shaded areas throughout the complex make walking a pleasure. Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Cranbourne Edition.

  • A nice, long walk in the fresh air with so many interesting plants to see. The displays are interesting & the 'hills' give great viewing across the landscaping. Would not recommend visiting on a hot day. There is a cafe & gift shop at the entrance & a kiosk at the far end of the gardens.
  • What a fantastic place! Plenty to see, fantastic gardens and so many interactive thing's for kids to do. I can't wait to see how the gardens evolve over the next few years.
  • Outstanding displays, interesting tours. Explorer is excellent way of having an overview of much of the gardens. Worth spending a full day looking around. Cafe serves a good lunch. Very enjoyable.
  • haven't been there for a while. I was surprised how good is this place now. Amazing job done. You can spend all day, never get bored.
  • Beautiful scenery and walks, plenty of quality play equipment for kids,varied souvenir shop, good coffee at the cafe though catering for special diets could be expanded. Great place to spend a sunny afternoon and let the kids wear themselves out.
