We absolutely were surprised and taken in by the glass house with the various flora species like the giant Blue Nile Water Lily. The rainforest hothouse was great too, similar to the one is Singapore on a smaller scale.

An enjoyable and quiet relaxing spot in the centre of Adelaide. Gardens are well set out. Great way to spend a few hours just wandering around.

There are many places where you can just relax snd breathe and take in the wonderful atmosphere and huge variety of plants and meander down interesting pathways that lead to all sorts of interesting places.

There is a cafe in the Centre and a small shop selling garden equipment etc and an excellent Museum showing the parts of different Trees and plants and their uses. A fascinating place in... More

The gardens here are set out with great attention to detail. So many little hidden nooks and crannies to lay a blanket down and enjoy the beautiful scenery, listen to the birds singing and breathe in the fresh air. Well worth many visits over and over. The botanic garden restaurant however should be avoided. We were treated very rudely (perhaps... More

Came here for a picnic with friends and I absolutely loved the picturesque view of the surrounding gardens. Beware though! I had angry magpies swarming into us since we had food out, so perhaps try to sit somewhere (like under a shade) instead of open grassland because then it makes it easier for them to see.

Having seen the gardens 10 years ago, I was surprised and pleased at the improvements and development the Garden has undergone. look out for the trees full of fruit bats, a great surprise we did not know about.
