This botanic garden is so well done! I love the multitude of things to see and do. There are a few greenhouses housing plants from different countries. I like how the landscape changes, accommodating different plant habitats and providing informative plaques that enhances your learning experience. You can easily spent a couple of hours wondering around this garden.

There's a lot of very interesting plans, trees, and flowers. Definitely worth a visit when in Adelaide and you feel like you need to get out of the city center. In the gardens you cannot hear the sounds of cars or people. Nice to walk around or you can do a free tour in the morning as well. Free attraction.

A friend recommended this museum in the botanic gardens and I found it very fascinating. There's a collection of plants / seeds from plants that are useful to humans (as food, medicines, etc). The garden itself is lovely too, particularly the lotus pond.

If you truly want to get away from the madness & noise of the city then you can, right here. Stepping inside the gates gives you an immediate sense of relief & calmness. This is the best botanical garden in Australia. There is a great cafe with lots of shaded tables. Also, a first class restaurant just behind the cafe.... More

We walked here along North Terrace, and returned using the free city bus. Despite being in the centre of Adelaide the garden was quiet and peaceful, with good seating and well signposted. Cafe facilities were good, although the tea was quite expensive.

The Botanic Garden has something for everyone - from a turtle and waterfowl laden pond to exquisite exhibits of flowers. Well laid out in a naturalized setting, it's relaxed and accessible. If you're interested in some fauna as well as flora, it's worth making your way towards the zoo where Plane Tree Drive comes close to crossing First Creek. Here... More

We have walked through the Botanic Gardens twice on this visit to Adelaide and found it to be very special. The early gate opening to the gardens is a pleasant consideration, and a walk through on a hot day is a good way to escape the heat. The Australian Native section, near the National Wine Centre, is a delight as... More
