  • Such a beautiful place in our city to come for a walk on a sunny day. Quite peaceful considering its in the centre of town. Come on a Saturday and have a people watch of the wedding parties or look up at the sky in the evenings and see the bats fly off from the gardens and neighbouring botanic park.
  • Plenty to see in the Adelaide Botanic Garden. Recommend visiting the Bicentennial Conservatory - an impressive structure that houses many rainforest plants and ferns. There are two walkways within the conservatory (upper and lower) which allow you to appreciate both the beautiful forest canopy and lowland plants. Paths in the gardens have been thoughtfully-designed - all accessible and suitable for children/elderly/wheelchairs alike.
  • Beautiful, well kept, gardens with a wide variety of plants and loads of local birds. We absolutely loved these gardens and easily spent a couple hour walking through and taking photos. Put Melbourne's botanic gardens to shame.
  • Love this garden spacious trees all through park plenty of resting areas, has a pond,conservatory, magnificent restaurant with a delicious menu served with friendly staff food cooked and prepared to perfection,always changing with the seasons,and it's free to entry in the heart of the city
  • Lovely gardens for a picnic or just a walk. Plenty of shade if you have kids and great now the spaceship thing is now free entry. Also for the adults excellent seed/veggie shop, one of the best in Adelaide.
