Live and Breathe Nature at The Junction

Nature makes The Junction unique: 1.7 hectares within and 363 hectares next door at the Botanic Gardens. That’s a lot of green!

Many families are attracted to The Junction because of its close proximity to all the amenities to be found in Cranbourne. Others love the broad selection of schools within easy reach. But the thing that really makes The Junction unique is the colour.

Around 20% of The Junction is dedicated to open space. That’s 1.7 hectares of beautiful outdoor greenery that our community will get to enjoy. All different shades of green, from the wide-open lawns in the central park to the leaves of the numerous trees lining the pathways, the verdant plantations along the wetlands and the beautiful garden beds around the playground.

Indeed, green is good. After a hard day at work or shopping in Cranbourne, there’s no better way to refresh the mind, body and soul than being out in nature, whether exercising, walking the dog or just enjoying the fresh air. We want our community to be an oasis. A retreat from the hustle and bustle without actually being miles away from it!

And the greenery doesn’t end with our community. Literally next door to The Junction is the spectacular beauty of the revered Cranbourne Royal Botanic Gardens.

Here you have 363 hectares of heathlands, wetlands and woodlands to explore. If you somehow managed to cover one hectare a day, it would take you a year to see it all. To make the task easier, however, there are ten kilometres of walking tracks weaving through the bushlands, as well as rest areas, lookouts and even barbecue facilities.

The Botanic Gardens specialises in Australian native flora and provides a habitat for our indigenous wildlife, including some rare and endangered species of birds, mammals and reptiles. The Australian Garden is a highlight, with about 100,000 plants spread across 15 landscape displays and exhibition gardens, reminding us of the unique beauty to be found in our amazing country.

There’s a lot more to The Junction than convenience. All those shades of green (and red, yellow, blue, etc.) make this community pretty special.
