About More Info

Immerse yourself in the surreal beauty of Cactus Country, a unique outdoor attraction that transports you straight to the deserts of Mexico, right in the heart of Victoria, Australia. This expansive cactus garden, the largest in Australia, spans nearly five hectares and is home to over 10,000 cacti and succulents from around the globe.

Located in Strathmerton, three hours north of Melbourne, Cactus Country offers a captivating blend of diverse landscapes under vast blue skies. Navigate through eight themed trails such as The Andes Walk, The Valley of the Giants, and The Arizona Walk, each filled with an array of prickly residents from countries like Mexico, Argentina, and the USA.

Photography enthusiasts will find endless inspiration in the garden's unique shapes and vibrant blooms, while foodies can enjoy authentic Mexican flavours at the on-site restaurant. Try their cactus cake made from Peruvian apple, the fruit of the cereus, or kick back with a margarita or a cold Mexican watermelon soda in the sunny adobe courtyard.

Cactus Country is a pet-friendly destination, so feel free to bring along your furry friends (on a lead, of course). And before you leave, don't forget to pick up a few cacti from their nursery as a perfect memento of your visit.
