Highlights of the bushland
Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne contains one of Victoria’s most precious areas of native bushland and is home to an amazing range of plant and animal life, including several rare and endangered species.

Untouched heathy woodland and wetland covers two-thirds of the 363-hectare site and provides visitors with a unique opportunity to explore pristine environments within an hour’s drive of Melbourne.
The Stringybark and Woodland Picnic Areas are great places to enjoy a relaxed picnic lunch or barbecue as you watch the Bandicoots, Superb Fairy Wrens and Eastern Yellow Robins scampering and flitting amongst the vegetation.
Explore the heathy woodland on your way to the Trig Point Lookout Tower. Climb Trig Point Lookout for a 360-degree view across south-eastern Victoria including Western Port and Port Philip Bay, Mount Macedon and the Melbourne CBD.
The diverse remnant bushland represents a rare glimpse of the type of vegetation that once covered much of Western Port and Port Phillip Bay regions.
