What a glorious place to spend some time whilst in Adelaide. Beautifully kept gardens, some quirky pieces of art, architecture and landscaping. All in all a perfect place to spend some time. Don't forget to visit the gardener's shop and the restaurant either!

Our guide Marie was fabulous. She was knowledgeable and happy to have other on the tour also participate with any knowledge they may have in a particular area. This tour was about any hour an half long and I wouldn't absolutely recommend going.

Grab your esky and find a shady spot under one of many trees and set up for a relaxing afternoon. There aren't to many places which are free these days to be able to do this. Great place. You can spend hours walking around the gardens. Beautiful setting along side the city centre.

An awesome place to visit. Peaceful and easily accessible from the heart of town. We have been here before and this time there weren't as many flowers out but that is nature for you. Looked like there were lots of weddings taking place throughout the gardens later in the day. It was stinking hot in the city but in the... More

Wonderful place to just relax and unwind in Adelaide. The gardens are superb and loved the rain forest, ducks in the lake and architectural buildings. Great for all the family as children can run around.

Spent an afternoon strolling through this well kept garden. The rainforest feature was excellent. Adelaide people can be very proud of this litter free facility

Extensive gardens, nice for kids. Strict no feeding the ducks policy. Lots of grassy areas for picnics or just a sit down
