  • 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.
  • An amazing collection of fauna. Some truly impressive plants and all so nicely laid out. Spend an hour or two at least it's well worth it
  • Botanical gardens is a peaceful section of forestry that houses amazing ferns, lakes, and gum trees as old as time. Its a lightly challenging walk with amazing views and scenery. I highly recommend this during the autumn when there is a light drizzle as well as the beutiful waterfall gully while your there.
  • Beautiful well maintained gardens with lots of different settings to explore. The new wetland area was fascinating. We made several trips to cover it all.
  • Relaxing, well kept gardens near the city - lots of great spaces and really chilled! Something for everyone, though bring a book - not many activities, but great place to relax (much like Adelaide itself!) Definitely head to the water for the nicest spots
