A stroll in the Australian Royal Botanic Gardens, Cranbourne, part 3/3. Wandering north by east we pass a sculptured rockpool waterway, to landscapes characterised by ponds and rivers, home to water birds like the   not so common Eurasian Coot. These waters are rimmed by contrasting arid landscapes dominated by tough Mallee flora over the rise called Howson Hill, festooned with flowers busily attended by all manner of insect pollinators.   Strolling on to the northwest, the gardens transform into dry, sandy, coastal environs where only hardy bushes like Melaleuca bent by salt winds, tough little succulents and tiny flowers of bizarre structure like Goodenia survive.  Here the iconic symbol of these three Australian Botanic Garden series, Xerochrysum brachiatum – the Paper Daisies – hold their ground around Seaside.
