Nature / Park
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.

  • Great place to chill, walk your dog, read or hang out with friends. One of my favourite spots in the city
  • Love this park! Always a favourite to visit. Nice and clean; great for a picnic, game of cricket or a summer time stroll with the family.
  • Wonderful place with plenty of space close to the Zoo and the city. It's really beautiful.
  • Enjoy the day sitting in the sun under the trees. Beware of bats at dusk..
  • Nice park went to see James Taylor last night was not impressed with the set up won't go to another live music event there

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.
