Melbourne’s South East is home to many of the best walks in Victoria. With a range of mountains, hillsides, wineries and beaches, it could be argued that the region offers the best walking trails in Australia.
Some of the best walks lie within the hidden gem, Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria – Cranbourne Gardens. The Cranbourne Gardens, like its city counterpart, offers stunning flora with a uniquely Australian focus.
These tracks and the gardens themselves are perfect for a family day out as entry is free, with plenty of interactive activities to keep the kids entertained.
