What to See at the Adelaide Botanic Garden

From the unobtrusive obelisk marking the grave of its original director George Francis’ pet monkey, to the giant Moreton Bay figs planted by its second director, Dr. Richard Schomburgk, in 1866; and from its magnificently restored 1875 Victorian Palm House to the 126,900 cubic metre Bicentennial Conservatory opened in 1988, the Adelaide Botanic Garden’s remarkable range of attractions has made it the city’s most popular scientific and cultural draw, with over 1.3 million visitors each year.

An oasis in the center of Adelaide, bordering on the North Terrace, Hackney Road and the River Torrens, the Adelaide Botanic garden provides a noontime escape for office workers who use its lawns as settings for their packed lunches.

Sightseers can enjoy lunch at the Botanic Garden restaurant overlooking the main lake before setting out to wander along paths past the lotus-filled Nulumbo Pond, among the five thousand bushes in the International Rose Garden, or beneath the shade of the nearly century-old Wisteria Arbour.

Conservationists will marvel at the Bicentennial Conservatory’s collection of threatened plants from Australian, Indonesian, Pacific Island, and New Guinea rainforests, all kept happily humidified by an automated misting system. The leaded glass and elaborate ironwork of the Palm House shelter an extensive collection of plants from Madagascar, which in eons long past was, with Australia, a part of the supercontinent Gondwana.

Anyone having time can continue on to the new SA Water Mediterranean Garden, the focal point of which is a water rill built to capture the play of sunlight on the moving water. The Mediterranean Garden is modeled after Moorish gardens of the fourteenth century, and offers Adelaide’s home gardeners an education on how to create spectacular plantings with a minimal use of water.

The Museum of Economic Botany, the Herbarium, the Botanic Park, the Duck Pond, National Rose Trial Garden, and sculptures too numerous to count await those who have not yet had their fill!

Majestic Roof Garden Hotel Adelaide is situated within walking distance of both the irresistible foods at Adelaide Central Market and the idyllic charms of the Botanic Garden, making the idea of a picnic feast on its shady lawns hard to pass up!
