Adelaide Botanic Garden

Adelaide Botanic Garden is a lush oasis in the heart of the city, featuring beautifully-landscape gardens, majestic avenues and stunning architecture over 50 hectares of land.

A short walk or quick tram ride from Rundle Mall, Adelaide Botanic Garden has been growing since 1857 and features some of Australia's finest plant collections. It is free to visit and open every day of the year.

Pack a picnic and make a day of your visit, making sure not to miss the magnificently restored Palm House built in 1877, First Creek Wetland, Amazon Waterlily Pavilion, Santos Museum of Economic Botany or the Bicentennial Conservatory.

Enjoy a casual meal in one of the cafés or go all-out with a fine dining experience at the Botanic Gardens Restaurant.

If you find your inner green thumb on your visit, the Diggers Garden Shop stocks a wide range of seed, gardening books and garden wares to take home.

Do you know what fritz, FruChocs or frog cakes are? You will after joining this short and sweet tour, full of local treats!
