The three gardens that make up the Botanic Gardens of Adelaide have served South Australians for over 150 years. The three gardens, Adelaide, Mount Lofty (located at Piccadilly) and Wittunga (located at Blackwood) offer visitors an exceptional range of cultural, recreational, educational and scientific facilities. They enhance the community's enjoyment and understanding of the plant world.
The Botanic Gardens of Adelaide is an accredited member of the American Association of Museums.

The historic Adelaide Botanic Garden is the living breathing heart of the city centre. It offers visitors a unique opportunity to explore both exotic and native plants, iconic cultural collections and stunning restored buildings.
Mount Lofty Botanic Garden
Mount Lofty Botanic Garden features cool climate plants under a canopy of stringybarks on the eastern slope of Mount Lofty. Several walking trails reveal stunning massed displays of magnolias, rhododendrons, camellias and the richest collection of ferns in Australia.
Wittunga Botanic Garden
Australian and Southern African plants combine in this water-wise hills garden to provide seasonal colour and interest. There are brilliant displays of ericas and proteas in spring, plants from Kangaroo Island and Fleurieu Peninsula, a grey box forest and a beautiful butterfly garden.
