Social Day Picnic/BBQ at the Royal Botanic Gardens - Cranbourne
When: Sunday 14 April 2019. 11:00 for a BBQ lunch
Description: A Family Picnic/BBQ day at Royal Botanic Gardens - Cranbourne
This amazing new garden which is 15 hectares in size, features a gallery of exhibition gardens, sculptures and displays - all highlighting the beauty and diversity of our Australian landscape
The gardens have a lot of activities on offer and there are a number of walking tracks and themed gardens as well as a Garden Explorer Tour you may like to do.
“Discover the iconic Australian landscape on this bus tour led by an expert guide. From the Red Sand Garden, journey along the east coast of Australia, around the river bend, before winding back through the Peppermint Garden, taking in the wonders of the native bush”
If we want exclusive use of the Garden Explorer Tour we need to have a minimum of 10 people and the cost is $12 per person payable in advance. I am advised that there is a lot more information relayed on an exclusive tour and it is 30 minutes duration as opposed to 20 minutes for the general public.
Alternatively you can queue up and take your chance at a cheaper price of $8 per concession/child and $10 per adult.
Please advise in the comments if you wish to book the tour. Payment details will be provided at a later date.
Note: Please leave your dogs and other pets at home. Assistance animals are permitted.
What to bring: Picnic rug, Esky, Food,
Distance: Approx. distance from East Malvern RSL is 40 Km
Duration: I would recommend planning to spend a full day out here.
Meeting arrangements: The gardens open at 9am and Chris and I will be there some time after that to secure some picnic tables, so you are welcome to come early and enjoy the gardens before lunch if you wish.
We will meet at the Woodland Picnic area located just a 500 metre walk from the Visitor Centre, offers undercover BBQs and seating as well as a large playground and grassy area. Please note that BBQs are not able to be booked or reserved.
