  • It's very serene and well kept. You should not miss the Museum of Economic Botany. It's the only one that has retained its original form and content in the world. There are lots of green areas for you to relax and take in some of the freshest airs Adelaide has to offer. I'd definitely visit a few more times to explore the flora and fauna.
  • This quite literally one of my favourite places in Adelaide. You can walk around beautifully set gardens and not hear the city traffic bustling past on the surrounding main roads. Pack a picnic blanket and enjoy some lunch on the many grasses areas or enjoy more shaded seating in your choice of gazebos. There are some coffee shops dotted in the middle of the gardens as well as a restaurant that doubles as a function room that regularly caters for weddings. You can also buy some beautiful and exotic plants at The Diggers Club if you want to try growing your own fruits, vegetables and many other plants and trees. Take some time out of your day to enjoy the Adelaide Botanical Gardens and you’ll instantly feel more relaxed.
  • Still, one the best restaurants in Adelaide. Food is exquisite. Service is excellent. Setting is beautiful. However, your going to pay for it. Pricing per head has increased & this is not somewhere to be with a credit card that's maxed out. Make sure you know what your likely to be up for. If you can afford it don't let life slip by without experiencing this top class establishment. We've been coming here for a decade & it has never failed to impress. Highly recommended. Cheers, Q.
  • Beautiful. So much to see and explore, you can never get sick of it. Wonderful place to come to with family and kids. There's often tours and events especially for kids. There's also a nice cafe. Other than that there is heaps of shaded areas underneath trees to sit, with splendid views wherever you look.
  • Birds, Bugs, Spiders and Smells... walking through the botanic Gardens early in the morning as the sun touches the tips of the trees and the grass smells so fresh as its warmed in the sun after being watered. A great place to feel encouraged and at peace. God is good.
