Wittunga Botanic Garden can be found in the suburbs of Adelaida, The plants include many varieties of proteas and ericas. The floral trails are quite beautiful, as are the water features; you can even take a boat down Adelaide's pride, the River Torrens.

Wow! Such beautiful gardens filled with many varieties of flowers and trees. We have driven past here many times and today we decided to stop and take a look. I was so surprised to see how big it is. Was lovely to see several families of Ducks & ducklings. Nice seeing the turtles and hearing the frogs. There was a singing kookaburra which we couldn’t spot but could hear it. Loved all the spring colours. Lots of signage along the paths detailing the names of plants/flowers and where they’re from. We walked 6 km within the gardens. There are many paths all weaving into one another. Lots of benches situated around the park. Toilets located within the park. Car parking available. A really cool playground for kids to play and lots of picnic areas with sheltered tables to sit and eat at. Best part is that it’s free! Very well maintained.

Wittunga Botanic Garden was bequeathed to the people of South Australia by the family of the Garden's founder, Edwin Ashby. The 13 ha (32 acres) garden encouraged water wise plant cultivation, particularly for plants from Australia and South Africa. Edwin Ashby was a businessman and naturalist, who originated in Britain. The garden is quite charming, it is one of Adelaide's three botanic gardens.

Disappointing you can't even take your dog for a walk on lead around here, so had to leave upsetting my young daughter. Other similar areas across the city e.g Oakland's reserve (with wildlife) you can walk your dog.

At the time of writing, the Covid 19 restrictions in South Australia still allow us to exercise as long as it is a group no larger than 2; and maintain social distancing.

Well just off Shepherds Hill Road Blackwood is one of Adelaides 3 Botanical Gardens. 13 hectares of beautiful woodlands and lakes. Little walking paths that meander amongst native trees and shrubs and some imported ones also. Most are signposted. Rest rooms on site also.

Ducks on the large lake and scattered benches and a rotunda for resting and absorbing the peace.

A beautiful place to seek inner strength and admire God's gifts to us all.

No admission fees but an unobtrusive donation box. Car parking on site with an entrance off Shepherds Hill Road.

A little haven to isolate yourself physically and mentally..... and exercise at the same time.

I enjoy the relative peace and quiet of the gardens near the center of Blackwood, beautifully maintained with picnic areas and ducks on the lake

Lovely spot and enjoyable gardens that don’t require a huge amount of walking. Beautiful wildflower display when we visited in November.

Wittunga is a nice botanical gardens focussed on presenting native plants. The grivillias are splendid and bring in the bird life. That said it is open and grassy.
There is a circuit walk on sealed bitumen which is mostly an easy gradient so if you're in a wheelchair, supporting someone in a wheelchair or pram, be advised to do the full circuit you might need a fair whack of energy but it's not too challenging.

I took a cousin to visit after she'd had a knee replacement. Despite a few gentle hilly bits, she had no problems with walking & loved the experience. It's a very pretty location with a lake & ducks. Also a great place for families with picnic areas.
