Take the time to discover the beautiful Adelaide Botanic Garden, there's so much to see and do. Within walking distance of the city centre, this historical garden features an exceptional Victorian gardenesque landscape complemented by outstanding plant collections, cultural collections and garden buildings.

The Adelaide Botanic Garden is home to three architecturally significant glass houses - the Palm house, the Bicentennial Conservatory and the Amazon Waterlily Pavilion. Each glass house was built for a specific purpose and represents a leading design for its time.

Visit the internationally significant Santos Museum of Economic Botany, which first opened to the public in 1881, or stroll down the oldest avenue of Moreton Bay fig trees in Australia.

View the exotic Victoria amazonica in the exquisite glass Amazon Waterlily Pavilion and continue into the tropics by visiting the Bicentennial Conservatory, the largest single span glasshouse in the southern hemisphere. Wander through the SA Water Mediterranean Garden displaying plants from the five mediterranean climates of the world or go native in the Australian Native Garden.

Feature gardens include the, the Classground, the International Rose Garden and National Rose Trial Garden, the Eremophilia Garden, the Cactus and Succulent Garden, and cycad and palm displays.

In addition to the buildings and plant collections, the garden has permanent and temporary public installations by South Australian artists and designers such as Fiona Hall and Khai Liew. They also regularly feature international artists. A recently commissioned piece by Hossein and Angela Valamanesh will be an exciting addition to the Western Entrance to the garden.

You can have a casual meal in one of our cafs or go all-out with a fine dining experience at the Botanic Garden Restaurant. On a sunny day, bring a picnic and snooze the afternoon away on one of our lush green lawns.
