Botanic Park, Adelaide
(4.6/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
At Botanic Park, step into an oasis at the heart of the city. Wander through century-old Moreton Bay Figs or picnic under Plane Trees planted in 19th century. This 16-hectare (40-acre) historical garden includes a collection of Australian native and exotic plants. Highlights include a restored Victorian Palm House, the Amazon Waterlily Pavilion, and the Art Deco Bicentennial Conservatory. The park has had its own Speakers’ Corner for public debate since the 1890s. Share the space with native birdlife and couples taking their wedding photos on lush green lawns.

  • Always lovely to wander round these garden, with the great trees to shade picnickers, the lily ponds, and all the other beautiful plants. People always look happier here. 
  • We wandered around the garden happily and discovered many surprises, the best was the botanical museum filled with displays of seeds, fruits and so on. So very interesting and unique. 
  • Is where Adelaide itself relaxed good is, as well as botanical gardens. Families are picnicking on the lawn of the Park. And somewhat expensive restaurants and cafes near a pond in the Park, you can relax both. Cute outside Palm House with glass imported from the United Kingdom that the Cactus garden. I enjoy like bird, and a lot of birds in the Park. Just looking at the flowers and the trees, and also welcoming is fun.

  • Beautiful, well-cared and peaceful place! I really liked there. Nice for riding a bike and for a picnic.
  • Every 2nd Sunday of the month come down and get together with the legalize marijuana group..it's friendly and very informative
  • I want to give 6 stars. Really impressed with variety and design. Recommend in autumn.
  • Nice and peaceful but bad for parking when busy
  • Host of the wonderful WOMADelaide, but amazing all year round for picnics.
