Kuranga Native Nursery and Paperbark Cafe has absolutely the largest range of Australian native plants, anywhere.

Winner of a number of awards, including the Best Large Victorian Garden Centre in 2009, Yates Nursery and Garden Industry Awards, and finalist in the Australian Retailers Association, Boutique Retailer of the Year.

Situated in the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges, in tranquil surroundings overlooking Olinda Creek and shrouded by stately white trunked manna gums. The architect designed building features 100 year old massive wharf timbers and recycled ironbark exposed beams and houses the inspirational gift shop and the highly acclaimed Paperbark Cafe.

You are invited to come and experience the beauty, diversity and colour of their Australian native flora where you will discover the tiniest and the most delicate, the most sweetly scented, the prettiest and the most unusual.

The Australian native plants have adapted to the Australian environment and climatic conditions over many years. At Kuranga there are the toughest, most reliable and drought tolerant plants. There is also a large range of nest boxes, birdbaths, water bowls and bird feeders. A superb and unusual range of garden sculptures and ornaments.
