Botanic Gardens, Adelaide
This is a highlight in the centre of Adelaide for me. It is a big walled garden where you can go and relax, sleep, walk or have a picnic.
In the summer months there is a cinema in the gardens as well so you can bring a rug, bean bag (If you happen to be traveling with one) and bottle of wine, a great evening.
This a good place to unwind from city life. The Botanic Gardens are quite large, 20 hectares, and has has some artificial lakes, a rose garden and a conservatory with tropical rainforest environment.
There's a café inside the gardens which offers snacks and drinks.
Opening hours are from 8am to sunset on weekdays and from 9am to sunset on weekends and public holidays.
A quick stroll from the centre of Adelaide, the botanical gardens is a refreshing haven. Expansive gardens with many native and exotic exhibits. There is a large recreational park along side the gardens. All open to the public and free of charge.
The Botanical Gardens in Adelaide are really beautiful. Although many pamphlets say they open at 8am, (which they do) many of their buildings inside the gardens do not open until 10am. (like the palm house and the rose garden etc.)
Great little spot in the Botanical gardens to take some photos. This little mushroom statue is of the Girl Guide Mushroom with the wise old owl.
The botanical gardens centre around this small lake. There are a few benches in the shade of the trees where can sit and enjoy the birds, the view and the odd water rat.
A quiet and peaceful place, just right for a stroll and a quick nap on one of the benches.
Beautiful plants and buildings.
The Botanic Garden, located on the East Terrace, is a serene and peaceful place for a stroll or a picnic.
