What's On at the Gardens

Australia’s Best Major Tourism Attraction

Voted ‘Australia’s Best Major Tourism Attraction’ at the QANTAS Australian Tourism Awards, and best Victorian Major Tourist Attraction for three years in a row, the heritage-listed Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne and the contemporary native Australian Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne, offer a plethora of unique outdoor experiences.

From a punt ride on the lake, or a relaxing picnic under the oaks, to a guided cultural walk or explorer bus ride along the many meandering trails, there’s always something new to enjoy.
