Must see · Garden · Wildlife Area
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.

  • Beautiful. The Australian Garden is a lovely place to walk around. The walking tracks are also great, with a few different levels and lengths. The view from the lookout is lovely. A great place to go for a walk with friends, kids or to have a coffee and chat.
  • Wonderful places with no fee. Good view and sight. Fresh air and bird
