  • Beautiful, large gardens with a large range of different trees. Most of it is outdoors, so I recommend visiting early in the morning if you choose a hot day. There were barely and people when I was there. It's free and a great way to spend a few hours. The trees outside the gates near the parking area are especially impressive! Good place to take pictures, too.
  • Adelaide botanic gardens was the first place we stopped during our visit to Adelaide and I am so pleased we did. Incredibly well kept garden with a variety of plant life and landscapes. Take your time to stroll the grounds and take it all in. We saw a lot of bird life while we walked around. Well worth a visit.
