After a season at Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria’s Melbourne Gardens, experience Public Cooling House in the full summer sun at Cranbourne Gardens.

Inspired by conversations with scientists and artists about our water future, the Public Cooling House design draws from simple and ancient evaporative cooling techniques. Step inside and beat the heat; a cooling house attendant awaits to guide you through a special cooling experience.
