    Adelaide Botanical Gardens

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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 Cascade

    by hennanights Written Oct 27, 2006

    The Cascade sculpture, which sits outside the Adelaide Botanic Garden's Bicentennial Conservatory, was designed by Sergio Redegalli is made entirely of glass sheets. There are 500 pieces which were glued together to form the shape of a wave. The artist used glass to complement the Conservatory which also has an unique glass design.

    Picnic in the botanic gardens

    by Claire-Louise Written Jun 19, 2006

    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.

    Walk the Wisteria Walk

    by hennanights Updated Oct 27, 2006

    One of the loveliest areas of the botanical gardens is the wisteria walk which was planted in 1912. The first attached photo was taking in the winter. The second a few weeks later.
    In spring it comes to life with thousands of hanging, fragrant, purple flowers. Its flowers for a 2 month period in September and October.

    A quiet and peaceful place, just right for a stroll and a quick nap on one of the benches.

    Beautiful plants and buildings.

    For Brownies everywhere

    by hennanights Written Oct 27, 2006

    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.

    Centre of the garden

    by hennanights Written Aug 30, 2006

    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.
