Royal Botanic Gardens, Cranbourne

I’ve been here a few times in these past 3 years – probably 3-4 times till the last summer.

Always a lovely area to walk around, the Botanic Gardens (BG) itself. You will see why as you scroll down…

But I have never explored the trails outside the BG itself. Don’t dare to do it alone…with ‘snake alerts’ and danger of getting lost – though I always thought “I never know when i might get crazy enough to just do it solo.”

Summer Jan 2016

So, any wonder I jumped up at the first opportunity that came my way! 😀

That’s where I kickstarted my Autumn 2016 walks. With the South-Eastern Moderate walking meetup group.

Date: 28.04.16, Thursday
Venue : Walking trail around the Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne @ Australian Gardens

Mode: Still very overwhelmed by my results that was just released that very morning & thanking God for his grace & bounty. In fact, I was so overwhelmed that i forgot to click much photos until we were up on the viewing platform.

The red-sands that is the landmark of Royal BG! And, can you spot the race-tracks?

…all the way up from the viewing platform!

From the trails, we proceeded for a walk around the Royal BG itself, before it started raining! We did cover a good part of it.

And the most amazing part of the RBG is the fact that it is maintained sooooo well by a team of volunteers! God Bless these green-hands. 

Our group did have a chat with some of the friends of RBG/ volunteers on some gardening tips – after our coffee, while waiting for the rain to settle into a drizzle.

Lovely day. Amazing news. Indeed a celebratory walk! 🙂
So much so I didn’t feel the tiredness of being sleep deprived the night before.

I felt sooooo small in front of all God’s beauty & his abundance of Grace _^_
