I don’t go to this place nearly often enough. Situated in Cranbourne, just off the freeway, this botanical gardens has both natural bushland and formal Australian gardens. A lovely place to visit if you’re wanting to see what a bush, flower or tree might look like before you plant it in your own garden. Or just enjoy a lovely day visit there. It has a cafe, information centre, guides, even a small train to give you a tour.
