#4 of 30 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.
