Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne, Cranbourne

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.
