Our holiday in Victoria

September 2007

Cranbourne Botanic Gardens are about an hour drive south east of Melbourne (if there is no traffic hold up on the freeway). This was one of the main reasons we travelled along the southern coast of eastern Victoria. We had visited these gardens several times before, but not for many years. As it turned out, we only had about two hours there but we did manage to go for a walk through the bush area of the gardens. We didn’t have time to visit the new planted and landscaped area. That will have to wait until our next visit.

During this walk we managed to see a nice selection of native Australian plants. It was a little disappointing that few were in flower. This is probably because of the dry winter and the early timing of our visit. If we had delayed our visit by three to four weeks much more would have been in flower. All this means is that another visit sometime is a must.
