Adelaide Botanic Garden

Parks and Gardens

Adelaide Botanic Garden is an oasis in the cosmopolitan heart of the city, featuring beautifully-landscaped gardens, majestic avenues and stunning architecture. Spanning 50 hectares, the historic garden (opened in 1857) features some of Australia’s finest plant collections.

Things to see include the magnificently-restored 1877-built Palm House, First Creek Wetland, the Amazon Waterlily Pavilion, the Museum of Economic Botany and the Bicentennial Conservatory.
Also visit the award-winning Rose Garden, which blooms from October – April.

A series of exciting events for all ages take place throughout the year – check the What’s On page for more information on what’s coming up.

The Garden is open 365 days a year and entry is free.
You can also join a free guided tour provided by the Friends of the Botanic Gardens, departing from the Schomburgk Pavilion at 10.30am daily (except Christmas and Good Friday).

Facilities include the Visitor Information Centre and Diggers Garden Shop, which offers a wide range of seeds, gardening books and garden wares. You can also have a casual meal in one of the cafés, Simpson Kiosk and Evergreen Deli, or go all-out with a fine dining experience at the award-winning Restaurant Botanic.
