A huge thanks to Frank Greenhalgh for sharing this amazing space with us! Who's up for a trip down under?

‘If you are coming to Melbourne, Australia and wish to observe the beauty and wide diversity of Australian landscapes, flora and garden art in a day trip, make sure you visit the relatively new Royal Botanic Gardens in Cranbourne (45 km SE of Melbourne City Centre).  The garden comprises 900 acres of bushland and wetlands.  The centrepiece is the contemporary Australian Garden (37 acres), which showcases native plants in different environments and home garden styles.  Features include the red sand garden, rockpool waterway and escarpment wall, exhibition gardens, arid garden, eucalypt walk and lakeside precinct.  An open-air vehicle is available to transport people around the garden if challenged by the walk.  So if you are in town, I as a keen gardener highly recommend that you come and enjoy and learn more about this special treasure (Photos. courtesy of the Royal Botanic Gardens)’.
