Botanic Park, Adelaide

4.5
#4 of 25 in Parks in Adelaide
At Botanic Park, step into an oasis at the heart of the city. Wander through century-old Moreton Bay Figs or picnic under Plane Trees planted in 19th century. This 16-hectare (40-acre) historical garden includes a collection of Australian native and exotic plants. Highlights include a restored Victorian Palm House, the Amazon Waterlily Pavilion, and the Art Deco Bicentennial Conservatory. The park has had its own Speakers’ Corner for public debate since the 1890s. Share the space with native birdlife and couples taking their wedding photos on lush green lawns. A visit to Botanic Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Adelaide holiday planner to plot your vacation.

  • One word, WOMADELAIDE!! The best venue on earth :) Love the care the city of Adelaide displays in taking care of this park before, during and after the event.
  • Womadelaide was on which is a fabulous festival and the park is a magical venue. However, the dust and the huge crowds are decreasing the enjoyment for everyone.
  • We went there to attend Lionel Richie’s concert and the parking was terrible! Wherever we park a person will run to us saying “ sorry this is a VIP spot “ I don’t understand why didn’t they put a sign!!!??? We parked, looked the doors, walked away from the car three times!!! Then we had to leave the car in a very far area! The whole experience was so terrible! Very disappointing!
  • A well maintained metro park, with mature trees providing ample shade for picnics
  • A great venue for WOMAD, great place to relax at other times as well.
