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.

  • Beautiful area so close to the city for a picnic or similar. Great opportunity for the kids to climb through the big fig trees throughout the park! lots of open space for kicking a footy or a little backyard cricket.
  • What a wonderful asset this park is for Adelaide - just grass and trees. So close into the city with the Botanic Gardens on one side and the Zoo on the other. This is family friendly amenity at its best and I wonder at the fore sight of the founding fathers of Adelaide, and the persistence of many people over the past 180 years, to preserve this space. So simple, yet so effective. Long may this space remain a gathering point for simple family picnic gatherings.
