Red Sand Garden

Starting your journey through the Cranbourne Gardens Living collections is the Red Sand Garden, the centrepiece of the Australian Garden.

As you descend the Visitor Centre steps you are immersed in this quintessential landscape, an artistic interpretation of Australia's iconic Red Centre.

The Red Sand circles represent the grey vegetation dotted throughout our arid landscapes. Graduating in size, they draw your eye across the desert and give the impression of vastness. You will notice crescent shaped lunette sculptures line the perimeter to emulate red sands blown across the desert to form dunes.
