I am no doubt bias because I live in Adelaide, but I believe it is one of the better Botanic Gardens. Close to the city with a variety of different places to visit within the park including glass houses, green houses and a variety of areas of beauty. Not to mention one of the better restaurants in Adelaide.

So peaceful just walking through this place and the café and restaurant serves good meals. Also a great place for the family and kids to have a picnic at. Conveniently close to the city where there are plenty of activities, transport and excellent eateries.

Beautiful garden, perfect for a picnic in the summer sun, or a nice romantic stroll with a loved one. Entry to the garden is free and perfect for any age. There's wonderful lakes with ducks, beautiful flowers. It's a must see for anyone staying in Adelaide.
