Walk from the Adelaide city center to discover the urban oasis that is the Adelaide Botanic Garden. Once here, visit the Palm House, a Victorian glasshouse containing Malagasy arid plant life. Enter the fragrant National Rose Trial Garden to see the different rose varieties that can grow in the local climate. Stand in the curvilinear-glass Bicentennial Conservatory and observe a delicate ecosystem including noisy pittas birds, spiders, and centipedes. Make sure you also stop by First Creek Wetland, a relatively recent addition, where you can learn about the importance of wetlands to urban environments.

  • Beautiful gardens with lots of space to walk and enjoy the scenery. Cool exhibits throughout. Such an amazing option for no-cost entertainment! They even have a really cute Cafe in the middle where you can buy delicious pastries and coffee and lunch options!
  • Go there... Smell the flowers, look at the colours. Need I say more... Well yes, I do. It's full of beautiful trees of a great age and dense bamboo with carvings from ye old times of before I wrote this. Bird life to be heard from all around. Walk through trail to the glass house to be taken into a different surrounding all together. SO GO THERE TODAY
  • A gem of Adelaide. Very nice botanical garden. Good labelling for the plants. The garden is still relatively tranquil, unlike some major parks which have seen hordes of noisy tourists in recent years. I also like the combination of colonial elements and modern arts and structures dispersed throughout the park.
  • Adelaide Botanical Garden is a must do, you can’t pass it up if your in the city. It is tranquil, breathtaking, peaceful and abundance of colour and little hidden areas. Perfect place for an outing wether it’s with a loved one, friends or family. It could be for a casual stroll or a picnic or just to have some time out. You won’t be disappointed.
  • The Adelaide Botanic Gardens are one of my favourite spots in Adelaide. An exploration will have you find beautiful little nooks, pathways and amazing old greenhouses. You can't miss the Amazon Lily Pavilion, and the Museum of Economic Botany. Take a picnic and make the most of exploring these beautiful gardens.
