The sprawling Adelaide Botanic Garden flanks the north-east edge of the city. This extensive green space is made up of 120 acres (48.5 hectares) of landscaped parklands, glass houses and scientific research facilities. Founded in 1857, as envisioned by Adelaide’s original planner, Colonel William Light, the garden has a rich history of providing conservation, education and fascination.
Start your visit by entering from Plane Tree Drive and strolling down Murdoch Avenue, home to the oldest strip of Moreton Bay fig trees in Australia. When you get to the Kainka Wirra Main Lake at the end of the avenue, take a left to Schomburgk Pavilion to find the Visitor Information Centre, the garden shop and a café. Here you can decide the best way to see the rest of the park.
Take a free guided tour from the Visitor Information Centre or a self-guided tour using the MyParx app on your smartphone. And, of course, you can always simply wander around the garden and explore.
