Himeji Garden, Adelaide

(4.5/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Find serenity in Adelaide at the Himeji Garden. Japanese sister city, Himeji, presented the gardens as a gift in 1982, and landscape architect Yoshitaka Kumada visited a few years later to upgrade the layout and bring the design into line with the principles of a traditional Japanese. Take a self-guided tour of the sansui mountain and lake garden and of the karensansui dry rock garden. Try to arrive early if you want the gardens to yourself, and don't forget your camera. Plan to visit Himeji Garden during your Adelaide vacation using our convenient Adelaide vacation trip planner.

  • Himeji = green. It exactly this place look like, green and calming. But there is a lonely duck in the pool... if only the duck looks happier, then will the garden.
  • Absolutely beautiful gardens where you can sit and relax for as long as you like. Great photo opportunities. A must see.
  • It's a decent little Japanese garden, not terribly well kept though and there are some strange people who sleep in there most days who don't seem to be homeless but feel it's appropriate to hang around there without a shirt on.
  • Beautiful garden on the southern edge of Adelaide. Small but filled with plants, statues, rocks and other features faithfully creating a genuine Japanese garden. Well worth a visit.
  • Currently sat in this garden and couldn't recommend it any more. Calm, peaceful, quiet and most of all beautiful. Small, but if anything this adds to the charm. Definitely visit, bring a book and have a couple of hours in Japan!
