Step back in time to office life in the early 1900s as you explore Adelaide Botanic Garden’s ornate admin centre, the heritage-listed Goodman Building - after dark.
On this brand new Botanica Lumina tour, you will delve behind-the-scenes through timber-clad corridors and past curious artefacts.
Take a sneak peek into the Director’s office and beautiful boardroom, and admire the building’s original detailing.
Hear about the building’s current role, the on-site Seed Conservation Centre, and what precious treasures are locked within their sub-zero-degree banks.
Once used as the management centre of the Adelaide Tram Network, these walls have many stories to tell.
This event is part of the South Australian History Festival.
The Botanica Lumina program is proudly supported by Major Sponsor SA Power Networks.
The photos of the Hackney Tram Depot and Goodman Building come from the work “Adelaide’s Public Transport – the First 180 Years”, by Tom Wilson and co-authors John Radcliffe and the late Christopher Steele.
