Fifty acres of luscious gardens, amazing architecture, and enthralling history. All in our backyard.

Adelaide Botanic Gardens opened their site to the public 160 years ago, in October 1857. Since then, it has grown into an amazingly diverse and inclusive experience, and a pleasure for the senses.

As well as beautiful flora, there is also an array of striking and contrasting architecture, all purposefully built to maintain a high standard of plant cultivating. Each building has an amazing story. From the Bicentennial Conservatory: Southern Hemispheres largest single span glasshouse; to The Palm House: imported from Germany in 1875, and thought to be the last one of its kind still in existence. These beautiful buildings are a must see when visiting the Gardens.
