Royal Botanic Gardens | Cranbourne
With Victoria's lockdown rules being opened up slightly to allow five people over to your house, and 10 people to gather outdoors (keeping 1.5m distance), good news has just come in that the Royal Botanic Gardens have now reopened for a nice stroll.
Both Melbourne, and the Cranbourne gardens have reopened as of Wednesday 13 May for you to walk through at your leisure.
There will be no tours or events taking place in the gardens just yet.
Melbourne's newest Botanic Garden to open in over 100 years is the Australia Garden at the Royal Botanic Gardens at Cranbourne.
The Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne is one of Victoria's most precious areas of native bushland and offers nature-lovers the chance to explore 363 hectares of untouched heathlands, wetlands and woodlands.
These expansive natural gardens are also home to thriving bird and animal life, including several rare and endangered species.
The RBG Cranbourne is home to a new garden - the Australian Garden. The Australian Garden is a place where visitors can immerse themselves in Australian flora, landscapes, art and architecture. This amazing new garden features a gallery of exhibition gardens, sculpture and displays - all highlighting the beauty and diversity of our Australian landscape.
