Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Victoria / Mornington Peninsula / Cranbourne / Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne
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.

Great to visit and huge.. heaps of places to explore. Paddle stream is a must as is the home garden out the back. Best part is its free and heaps of walking tracks. A lookout is worth the walk with views of the SE and even the city can be seen.. did I say its free
Some years after it's creation the gardens have now settled down and the very imaginative varied designs which illustrate Australia's hugely varied flora. It's well worth a visit.
One of Melbournes best kept secrets - these gardens are absolutely amazing and might well be the best gardens in the state. Absolutely MUST visit.
I have visited here many times and there is always something new to see. Different plants flower at different times and contrast well against the many scenic backgrounds. It is a wonderland for photographers and gardeners.
Possibly the best botanical gardens in Victoria. So diverse and beautifully designed. Cranbourne Australian gardens always takes my breath away
