Botanical Gardens


The start of our natural environment impacts greatly on almost every aspect of our daily lives. The environment is not just trees and animals – it is the very air we breathe, the water we drink, our weather, the buildings we live in and much more.

Our vision is for the City of Greater Dandenong to be one of the most sustainable cities in Australia by 2030.

We’re working together with our local community to achieve this and create a cleaner, greener Greater Dandenong - today and for generations to come.


We are taking environmental education to the streets, with the arrival of our Environmental Education Electric Van.
