Specially-trained and passionate volunteer Garden Guides – from the Friends of the Botanic Gardens of Adelaide – conduct free guided walks for the public at Adelaide, Mount Lofty and Wittunga Botanic Gardens. Each guided walk lasts about an hour-and-a-half and no booking is required (unless in a group of five or more). Special interest walks – from history to Aboriginal plant use, and from heritage buildings to sculpture and much more – are also available for groups. A small charge per person may apply. To phone the Friends’ Booking Officer call (08) 8226 8803.

Meander, jog or chew through your trashy airport novel in these lush city-fringe gardens. Highlights include a restored 1877 palm house, the waterlily pavilion (housing the gigantic Victoria amazonica ), the new First Creek wetlands, the engrossing Museum of Economic Botany and the fabulous steel-and-glass arc of the Bicentennial Conservatory (open 10am to 4pm), which recreates a tropical rainforest. Free 1½-hour guided walks depart the Schomburgk Pavilion at 10.30am daily.
