  • What a beautiful garden in the city center of Adelaide. It took couple of hours to walk through all the garden. Such nice things to see 
  • By myself and nobody bothered me. Nobody shouting after a couple of drinks. Short menu but its a small place. Worth the delightful walk to get there. No cars around. 
  • Came with a friend to explore the gardens. The green house was quite small. The rose garden and the sun flower patch is a must visit. We visited on a hot day so would recommend sunnies, hats and plent...  more »

  • I think the Adelaide Botanic Gardens may be my favourite ones in Australia - especially with the new Wetlands area now being firmly established. The gardens are a bubble of calm surrounded on all sides by the city, and it's wonderful to step through the gates and instantly relax. Beautiful space - we're lucky to have them.
  • Take some time to walk through the gardens. Its tranquil paths and majestic nooks will wow you. Can spend hours looking and smelling all the different species of plants and trees.
  • Who doesn't love botanic gardens? Beautiful place for everything. Picnic, wedding, date, photos. There's a beautiful calm there, even if we're in center of cbd it's total quiet.
  • Amazing place. Take a few hours off to wander around. Make time to see the tropical glass house and rainforest building.
  • Such a lovely place for a stroll and just to relax and enjoy nature. Such a delight that it's right in the heart of the city too and so accessible!
