  • A lot of fun even in the heat. Wonderful Adelaide treasure!! The economic botany museum was excellent and relies on volunteers and donations. After you visit the museum you will want to make a donation too. Easy to get to by taking the tram. Enjoy!!
  • Wonderful place! Huge trees have enough shade and benches are installed under the shade properly. There are not many birds and lizards and feel safe wherever. Scent from green grass and hidden plants is unforgettable. Portable mat or chairs would be more comfortable if you would like to enjoy the green grass and the shade. Under the shade you can feel more cool chilling wind and aroma in the wind. And also there is a small cafe. If you forgot something to drink you can have it in the garden. The cafe also has out door seats and located near toilet. It is good place you could be charged with new energy.
