Day Trip To The Royal Botanic Gardens - Cranbourne Annexe.


Our caravan is packed away for the rest of this year but it doesn't mean that we cant get out into nature.

We try to do at least two day trips per week.

The Cranbourne Annexe specializes in native plants from all parts of Australia.

Its also surrounded by relatively undisturbed natural bushland full of endemic species.

Many types of birds, animals & reptiles live in & around the gardens.

Here are a few photos from our visit today.

Cranbourne Annexe. First time I've heard of it. Great that such places exist in proximity to suburbia.
