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.

  • Love the different walks and plant sections, beautifully landscaped, great restaurant and a good area to paddle feet. Update* New addition with grassed area where you can picnic and relax looking over a pond. Gift shop has great items, have purchased quite a few things from there. Kids playground looks great, water fountains & toilets around the walks which are helpful. Highly recommended place
  • An absolute brilliant place to visit! We saw so many Bandicoots while we were walking. The water theme allowed for children (& adults) to engage in water play. There's a sand pit for exploring & building rock sculptures. A little gift shop with quaint & some unique mementos. I'm not sure about how easy it is to manage a wheelchair, however, they do have ramps, & most paths that would be adequate. Sensory friendly for children/adults who require lower sensory input. Did I forget to mention coffee and food at the cafe, which was operating even on a public holiday.
