There's lots to see at the gardens, but the rainforest is one of my favourites. There are also areas of lawn for picnics. There are several entrances/exits, it's right near the city square, close to transportation routes, and it's free.

Beautiful time to visit the gardens. The wisteria arch is a must see plus the wolimi pine. The bamboo walk is fantastic as well.

You could spend a lovely afternoon meandering through these well curated and maintained gardens. Two wisteria walks, a fern house, and the succulent garden were clear stand outs. Don't miss the African Waterlily house or the Tropical Glasshouse: I saw a turtle in the pond!...More

Adelaide Botanic Gardens were a great place to relax for a while during our stay. There are 2 restaurants/ cafes in the Gardens but we didn't try either of them, so can't comment on them.

Wandered through the gardens on a hot day - stuck to the shaded areas but it's all very neatly laid out, a decent amount of seating from time to time, and the odd notice about a tree or shrub. Interesting to see a tree growing...More
