Red Kangaroo Paw Plant
Anigozanthos ‘Bush Ranger ‘

‘Kangaroo Paw Celebration’ at Cranbourne during November

This will be a marvellous celebration of the iconic kangaroo paw and its relatives. We may be familiar with kangaroo paws in our own and other gardens, but there is a whole lot more to this fascinating plant family.

As part of this month-long celebration there will be a special three-day symposium over 24 –26 November on the iconic Kangaroo Paws, Anigozanthos and Macropidia; Bloodroots, Haemodorum; Cottonheads, Conostylis and other genera such as the more poorly known Blancoa, Phlebocarya and Tribonanthes. Please register your interest today. Registration forms available kangaroo-paw-registration-form-271016.

Over November the Gallery behind the Visitor Centre information will have exhibition of artworks, crafts and floral art all with a Kangaroo Paw and relatives theme. During the month there will be a ‘Best Kangaroo Paw Pic Instagram Competition’ with winner announced on 27th November. The ‘Kangaroo Paw Picnic’ over the weekend of Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th November will provide a varied program of activities for people to enjoy.
