- These beautiful gardens are a fascinating work in progress. Planted only in 1970, they are still in the process of maturing, but soon will be fully developed and an extension to the renowned Royal Botanic Gardens in South Yarra. Unlike the original gardens, with their classical Victorian landscaping and European flora, the Cranbourne gardens celebrate Australia's native species, many of which are unique. The park comprises 300 hectares of bush land with walking tracks and barbecues to enjoy, and is located in the fast-growing residential centre of Cranbourne, only one hour from Melbourne. Admission is free.
