Summer fun at Cranbourne Gardens!

The summer holidays are a great time to get out to Cranbourne Gardens! Keep the kids busy with interactive and imaginative programs that connect them to nature and helps them appreciate the outdoors. 

Don't miss out on these fun activities and book in early to make sure you have a spot. 

Desert Fairies and Elves allows children to discover the magic of the Gardens through storytelling and activities. Starting with a treasure hunt for fairy and elf treasures, children follow a story to collect the right items to take home so that they can attract their own magic in their home garden. At the end, everyone gets the opportunity to make a botanic boat so that the fairies and elves can race down the Rockpool Waterway. 

Summer Succlents is a drop-in activity to learn about how succlent plants can survive in the heat. You also get to pot up your own plant and take it home with you!

Wonderful Waterbugs and Plants shows you the huge amount of living organisms that are living in our waterways. See all the detail with a microscope and test the conditions of the water.  

End the school holidays with a bang at Family Fun Day! In collaboration with the City of Casey and South East Water, a full day of fun for everyone with stalls, activities, learning and interaction. 

With the bushland, BBQ areas, outdoor playgrounds and a bike track – there is certainly something for children of all ages to enjoy.
