Creating a mini haven for native wildlife
Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, Cranbourne Gardens offers visitors the chance to explore heathlands, wetlands and woodlands and is home to a large array of native flora and fauna. Recognised as an important site of conservation, it contains over 25 species listed as endangered, threatened or at risk of extinction.

Open Gardens Victoria will be holding a special event on Sunday 27 October 2019 at the Cranbourne Gardens. The Urban Habitat Gardens Talk provides you with the opportunity to learn how to create your very own space as a refuge for our precious wildlife.

Charlotte Fletcher is the Southern Brown Bandicoot Outreach Officer at the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria and will be hosting the talk. Charlotte will share her experience and knowledge on how to attract birds, butterflies, lizards and other furry mammals to urban habitats and the important role you can play in conservation.
