Cranbourne Gardens

Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne offers a natural bushland experience alongside the Australian Garden, an award-winning, contemporary botanic garden featuring the plants and ecosystems of south-east Australia. The bushland includes over 10km of walking tracks, six kilometres of cycling tracks, a lookout tower, picturesque shelters, barbecues and play grounds. There is a range of visitor programs, as well as self-guided walks available throughout the year. The Australian Garden celebrates the beauty and diversity of Australian landscapes and flora and features approximately 170,000 plants from 1,700 plant varieties. 

Please note that for the safety of your beloved pooch, and the native wildlife, no dogs are allowed at the Cranbourne Gardens.

Last entry is 4.30pm with the Gardens closing at 5.00pm daily.
