Cranbourne Gardens

Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne offers a natural bushland experience alongside the Australian Garden, an award-winning, contemporary botanic garden celebrating the beauty and diversity of Australian landscapes and flora and featuring over 100,000 plants from 1,900 plant varieties. 

The bushland has over 450 indigenous plant species and includes over 10km of walking tracks, six kilometres of cycling tracks, a lookout tower, picturesque shelters, barbecues and playgrounds. It is a precious remnant of the vegetation that once covered the broader region and is actively managed to control the number of non-indigenous plants and exotic weeds.

There is a range of visitor programs, as well as self-guided walks available throughout the year. 

During Fire Danger season, some facilities and tracks at Cranbourne Gardens may be closed.

Please note that for the safety of your beloved pet, and the native wildlife, no domesticated animals are allowed at the Cranbourne Gardens (unless they are a registered assistance animal).

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