It looked a sorry state , lots of pruning and attention needed here . As for the rest , very impressive expensive looking buildings , the cafe area was a disgrace ,... More

The Botanic gardens are right in the city and close to many other attractions and great restaurants. So worth a walk through and great for a picnic in beautiful surrounding. Bring the food and a nice wine and just sit back and relax.

Right in the middle of the city, the Adelaide Botanic Garden is a beautiful place to wander or rest on the grass. Perfect picnic spot and huge duck pond for the kids. Amazing Amazonian glasshouse with water lilies is a must see.

Went there recently to attend a wedding, what a beautiful location, in fact there were several weddings happening in different areas of the park at the same time. Is also perfect for a family picnic, with the other option of having devonshire tea or other refreshments from the kiosk set in a lovely tree studded shady retreat adjacent to a... More

Even " non plant people" should love it here. Peaceful, gorgeous for a walk around, a family picnic or just to kick back and relax for awhile.

Adelaide Botanical Gardens, like most major Adelaide city attractions, the Gardens are easily accessible when you are in the city. It's a tranquil oasis in the middle of the city. Well laid out, the rose gardens are world class. The Bicenteniial tropical gardens conservatory is well worth a visit.
