Are you in town longer than just a few days? Need to catch up with a few people at once but would like to stay out of a pub? One of the really nice things to do in Adelaide during our better weather (Sep-Dec, Mar-April or cool evenings in Jan-Feb) You should head into the city to the Botanic Park.... More

The diggers shop is amazing. The museum is one of a kind, globally, recommend the half an hour minimum to anyone.

The park covers a large area on the edge of the city centre, behind the Adelaide Hospital. The parklands are very well kept with lots of space to set up the picnic during the sunny days. Just next to it is the Adelaide Zoo and the Botanic Gardens.

The botanical garden in Adelaide is very beautiful and worth a visit. There are a great variety of australian plants and flowers to be seen. My favourite place is the old conservatory which is very beautiful.

The gardens are centrally located and easily access with plenty of hassle-free parking on the perimeter roads. We parked in Plane Tree Drive and entered through the wrought iron gates leading to the Bicentennial Conservatory Building. What a magnificent experience! This building is 100 metres long, 47 metres wide and 27 metres high and hold a magnificent collection of plants.... More

Its beautiful whether its fall or spring. Long routes for long walk or green fields for picnic. Gorgeous scenery for photo shoots during different seasons too. Make sure you take food and snacks as you might not find anything other than coffee van there.

The Adelaide Botanic Garden is always a lovely place to spend time. We like to wander through, there is a huge variety of plants and trees, it's beautifully laid out and maintained and it's really close to the Zoo and the restaurants in Rundle St. A great place to relax and spend some time.

Adelaide seems to have it all now- hustle, bustle and excitement of say Chinatown, Rundle Street East. museums and other attractions of North Terrace and the peace and quiet of these gardens. Very accessible and a beautiful place to enjoy a peaceful break from the city.

This is a beautiful garden to visit. It is well maintained and the plant specimens are well marked. The special houses, such as the one for the amazonian waterlilies, are a "must see". This garden is not to be missed when visiting Adelaide.
