A History of Excellence
The Foundation acknowledges the vision and generosity of supporters that have contributed to the Botanic Gardens of Adelaide. The following projects emerged from the success of the Gardens 150 Appeal and are now appreciated by millions of visitors.
The Schomburgk Pavilion
The contemporary Schomburgk Pavilion, an exciting interpretative centre with shop, cafe and performance space, has become a popular meeting place for garden visitors.
The SA Water Mediterranean Garden
The adjoining SA Water Mediterranean Garden unfolds as an arresting tapestry featuring plants from around the world suited to Adelaide's own changing climatic conditions.
The Amazon Waterlily Pavilion
The lyrical but energy-efficient Amazon Waterlily Pavilion showcases one of the Gardens' star attractions, Victoria Amazonica, introduced by Schomburgk to huge acclaim in 1868.
The Santos Museum of Economic Botany
Completing this precinct is the ravishingly restored Santos Museum of Economic Botany, one of the few remaining museums of its kind in the world. A generous Federal Government grant helped make this landmark restoration possible.
