#2 of 42 in Parks in Mornington Peninsula
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.

  • Wonderful landscaped garden with picnic area and barbecue. Thousands of plant varieties. If you are out for a fun and educational day out with the family, this is the best place for you.
  • Such an incredible garden. Wish we were able to stay longer but will 100% be back again! I found myself explaining to people “it’s the MONA of gardens” if they hadn’t heard of it.
  • I went on an excursion with grades 1 A and 2A on the 8th of March. I was fascinated by the guides knowledge of the local original owners of the land. What they can do with the contents of the land is amazing
  • A fantastic place to explore with kids. Water play and nature play areas. FREE. Great in any season with a beautiful Australian Garden area. Wheelchair accessible throughout including a changing places bathroom.
  • Awesome place to take the family. Something for everyone! Can easily spend the whole day exploring, or visit numerous times to appreciate everything.
