Himeji Garden, Adelaide

4.5
#5 of 26 in Parks in Adelaide
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.

  • Quiet and calm in the middle of the city. This little gem of a garden is beautiful. Families come here to let their children roam around and you can sit down and relax. It is maybe a bit small so it can get crowded pretty fast but if you need a little getaway for a short while you will need the peace and quiet you will need
  • Great little garden. Almost hidden, worth a visit if you are in the area. People in there relaxing, meditating, reading etc. Was recently in Japan and many aspects reflect actual Japanese gardens. Not a place to go to if you are a large group and want to drink, be loud etc
  • Beautiful small garden. Serene. Peacefully. Nice little picnic spot with well mai trained lawns.
  • Great and relaxing small garden to come to and just relax. Kids loved it. Shame it's small.
  • Lovely little garden. Could be more Japanese and the raked gravel area could be more attractive.

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.
