This is the mothership of botanic gardens.At 360 acres, its 10 times the size of city gardens. Amazing to think it is only half an hour's drive from Melbourne.
We loved the large areas of native bush and heaths and the dynamic displays of native species and contemporary sculptures. The red earth section is outstanding, bringing the outback into the suburbs.
We bought with us some lovely provisions and enjoyed lunch in the pleasant Stringybark picnic area,a short 2 km walk from the visitors centre. There are thoughtful shaded areas throughout the complex making walking a pleasure.
