Creating an Urban Wildlife garden –
tips and techniques

Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria’s Cranbourne Gardens is home to a wonderful array of native fauna. Visitors enjoy watching honeyeaters, fairy wrens, and bandicoots going about their business – but how can you take that kind of magic home with you?

Habitat gardening can help create outdoor spaces that are easy to maintain, provide refuge and resources for wildlife, and bring you entertainment and joy.

Find out how to create a haven for native animals in your own space in this urban wildlife gardening workshop.

Charlotte Fletcher is the Southern Brown Bandicoot Outreach Officer at the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria. Charlotte will give her perspective about how to attract birds, butterflies, lizards and other furry mammals to urban habitats.

The day also includes morning tea and a guided tour of the award-winning Australian Garden on the Explorer bus. The Friends of Cranbourne Botanic Gardens are hosting a plant sale on site on the day, so you could even pick up a few plants for your place and get that habitat happening.
