An awesome place to visit. Peaceful and easily accessible from the heart of town. We have been here before and this time there weren't as many flowers out but that is nature for you. Looked like there were lots of weddings taking place throughout the gardens later in the day. It was stinking hot in the city but in the... More

Wonderful place to just relax and unwind in Adelaide. The gardens are superb and loved the rain forest, ducks in the lake and architectural buildings. Great for all the family as children can run around.

Spent an afternoon strolling through this well kept garden. The rainforest feature was excellent. Adelaide people can be very proud of this litter free facility

Extensive gardens, nice for kids. Strict no feeding the ducks policy. Lots of grassy areas for picnics or just a sit down

Adelaide Botanic Garden is an interesting place to visit and appears to be popular with families. We visited on a very warm day and were looking for a cafe with a shady outdoor area where we could have a drink; we found a small cafe inside the gardens, though the cost of two beers and two scones turned out to...

Lovely garden, imaginative plantings. Only thing is - our taxi driver took us around the back, where it's not as lovely, so try to get to the main gate if you can.
