  • A lot of fun even in the heat. Wonderful Adelaide treasure!! The economic botany museum was excellent and relies on volunteers and donations. After you visit the museum you will want to make a donation too. Easy to get to by taking the tram. Enjoy!!
  • Wonderful place! Huge trees have enough shade and benches are installed under the shade properly. There are not many birds and lizards and feel safe wherever. Scent from green grass and hidden plants is unforgettable. Portable mat or chairs would be more comfortable if you would like to enjoy the green grass and the shade. Under the shade you can feel more cool chilling wind and aroma in the wind. And also there is a small cafe. If you forgot something to drink you can have it in the garden. The cafe also has out door seats and located near toilet. It is good place you could be charged with new energy.
  • Beautiful, large gardens with a large range of different trees. Most of it is outdoors, so I recommend visiting early in the morning if you choose a hot day. There were barely and people when I was there. It's free and a great way to spend a few hours. The trees outside the gates near the parking area are especially impressive! Good place to take pictures, too.
  • What a beautiful place to spend the afternoon. Highly recommend. Every type of plant in a walkable area. Beautiful places to have a quiet cuppa or a main meal. Or just an ice cream. Love it.
  • What a beautiful park ! Exotic plants everywhere, gorgeous greenhouse with cactus...one of my favourite place in Adelaide. Plus you can sip a good cup of coffee in the middle of nature with the several coffee shops. It's just a shame you have to pay for the parking (at Friend's gate), $3.50 per hour if I'm not mistaking. Worth the visit though!
