Australian Garden

Yes, it was hot today. We could have hibernated in the cool house, but instead we headed out to the Botanical Gardens at Cranbourne, the Australian Gardens.

I’m not sure what I expected, but certainly not this. More wild bush I think. But this was lovely.

The gardens are only 6 years old, but I thought they were grand, and will only get better.

They are a mix of landscape and planting.

This is stage one, and stage two is due to open this year sometime.

This waterway was available for paddling (but only between the red and yellow flags … just like at the beach)


The last of flowering gums.

No surprises at May Gibbs’ floral muse.

We could see Melbourne, the Dandenongs and Westernport Bay. But there was a heat haze that made distance photos unglorious.
