We consider the spectral action as an action functional for modified gravity on a spacetime that exhibits a fractal structure modeled on an Apollonian packing of 3-spheres (packed swiss cheese) or on a fractal arrangements of dodecahedral spaces. The contributions in the asymptotic expansion of the spectral action, that arise from the real poles of the zeta function, include the Einstein-Hilbert action with cosmological term and conformal and Gauss-Bonnet gravity terms.
