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.

There is so much more history behind the plants, buildings, and events at the Adelaide Botanic Gardens. Step into the Santos Museum of Economic Botany and be amazed at the 130-year history of the museum, while learning about the plants that have been loved and nurtured at the Gardens for the last 160 years.
