    This Botanic Garden is a haven of natural beauty within the city. It has a distinctly English feel to it and was well maintained. It is right next to the zoo and I could hear the monkeys calling as I walked under autumnal trees - fantastic!

    One of the first places I visited in Adelaide and can't stop coming back to enjoy the grounds. Love the herb garden and fruiting area. Great spot for wedding inspiration during the warmer months of the year

    Lovely place to go when your bored. Best to bring packed lunch and also they charge for parking now so best to take public transportation if possible or you will be paying $2.40 an hour. The park itself needs maintenance looks ruff

    Great open spaces and beautiful views as you stroll through the gardens. Lots to see with a great range of plants, flowers and trees along with some water features and special exhibits.

    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.

Where to stay in Adelaide

Most budget-friendly rooms in Adelaide cluster in the central business district, with plenty of backpacker accommodations located near the city's central bus station. Adelaide also boasts an outstanding public transport system, which makes staying outside the central areas a viable and economical option for sightseers. Look for quiet and affordable rooms in North Adelaide, a leafy neighborhood filled with an eclectic mix of shopping and dining options. Book early for visits during peak season, and expect higher prices on the weekends and during school holidays.
