  • Such a beautiful place to visit for a relaxing stroll around the beautiful gardens and enjoy all the beautiful flowers, the fern gully, the rhododendrons valley and all the tall trees. There are lots of picnic benches & room on the grass. Some brilliant photography opportunities with some many different floral colours in spring and all of nature’s colours on show in autumn being a highlight!!!
  • Beautiful hidden gem in the hills. Huge park/garden, well maintained and so much to see. You can almost go hiking here, there are very steep paths and interesting areas (fern garden!!). Can't wait to come back in spring!
  • What a stunning place to Visit in Autumn. The colours in the Adelaide Hills are breathtakingly beautiful. The trees at Mount Lofty Botanical Gardens are having shades of red, orange and yellow and are so vibrant and amazing. The walk down to the lake takes you through so many different areas. The lake itself is pretty and full of ducks and a few swans. You can park up at the top or down at the bottom. A must do when visiting Adelaide
  • Beautiful park, even in winter. We're looking forward to going back when all the flowers are in bloom. Some fairly steep path but most of it can be negotiated with a pram. Plenty of rest spots with great views. Also a lovely little coffee place by the lake and decent ablutions.
  • The venerable Mount Lofty Botanic Gardens. What a majestic easy scrolling garden set in the scenic Adelaide Hills. Easily my favourite tourist destination in the city as it is breathtakingly gorgeous during autumn and easy access to other popular Adelaide Hills attractions. The garden is also popular with families with young children and a popular picnic area during the warmer seasons.
