Owner description: In the heart of the city but another world away ... Take time out to explore the beauty and diversity of plants from across Australia and around the world. Spend an hour or spend the day among the 50 hectares of magnificently maintained gardens and stunning architecture. Relax in the shade or enjoy a coffee among some of Australia's finest plant collections.

It's free, it's tranquil, it's interesting... with some displays that are not available in other botanical gardens I've been. Amazon Waterlily pond & Palm house are pretty unique.
It's not as big as Botanical Garden in Melbourne or Sydney, but still spacious enough. It also has an interesting past, with a 'deadhouse' (google it up !) as part of the garden complex.

The park provides a way of escaping from the hurly burly of life and admiring nature's gifts. The park has informal planting and lots of green spaces with a range of different planting areas set in a rolling landscape with a lake and lots to admire. There are rose gardens an inside 'tropical forest dome' with walkway, different garden areas, museum, artworks, shop and cafe area. Whilst walking around we saw lots of different types of birds. There are plenty of seating areas although many people use the grass to sit on and admire the views.

Would definitely revisit if I return to Adelaide especially as it is so easy to get to being connected to the CBD.

Definitely find time to stop and smell the roses. The rose garden was lovely. Exploring the gardens was an enjoyable way to spend the afternoon.

In a State known general as one of Australia's most arid these botanic gardens provide a verdant haven with an informal setting of different plantings reflecting the various climates of the world. The facilities include a palm house in the 19th century architectural tradition, a walk-through 'tropical forest' within a humid glazed steel and aluminium structure, a museum of world-wide fruit and vegetables, a pleasant café/restaurant overlooking a shady lake and a variety of unique gardens featuring many plants and birdlife. All of this within an easy walk of the CBD provides an interesting and natural relief from city sightseeing.
