A leisurely stroll through these beautiful flowers is a wonderful experience. The colourful birds are just a great bonus. The fragrance garden was a nice experience for the senses. There is a nice restaurant on the premises and make sure you see the succulent garden.

Title says it all really. The gardens are absolutely beautiful. I walked through the wider park from Victoria square right in the centre of Adelaide. Takes about 20 mins to get to the botanic garden bit. As you enter there is a big board with 'you are here' on and then different things throughout the gardens are numbered from about 1 to 38. I photographed it with my iPad and followed them in order so as not to miss anything, it really was amazing and after about an hour I was only half way round. Highly recommended! There is a cafe in the middle as well to get drinks etc if it is too hot (it also has free wifi).

Plenty to see here and lots of different areas. The giant water lilies, and the Rainforest pavilion were lovely. Many of the water areas were being refurbished when we visited but will be lovely when complete. Excellent for free attraction.

It is the place to escape the busy city life, or to slow down while on a busy sight-seeing schedule. The duck pond, the beautifully looked after carpet of grasses locate throughout the Garden, and yet one feels @peace
I have been there numerous times and will continue to do so whenever I have the chance
One of my fav. place in Adelaide & it is free :)

As expected, lots of strange and wonderful plants. Such a peaceful beautiful place, couldn't believe we were in the centre of the city. The hothouse, though not very large, is lovely.
