Want to do something different Valentine's Day?

What better way to leave an expression of love for that special someone than to have it on display at Adelaide Botanic Garden’s dazzling International Rose Garden?

The public is invited to the Garden – free, all welcome – on Sunday 14 February to write love notes, which will be displayed among the Garden’s thousands of roses, for the world to see.

Attendees can dedicate a rose to their Valentine, by placing a personalised helium balloon next to the rose of their choice, creating a vivid landscape of colourful love!

Make a day of it with your loved one by purchasing a gourmet picnic basket (vegetarian options available) thanks to the award-winning Botanic Gardens Restaurant, which includes a delicious gourmet meal for two, nibbles, refreshments (alcohol optional) a picnic rug, glasses, cutlery, etc. Picnic baskets must be pre-purchased before 10 February, and can be picked up from the Restaurant between 12-5pm, and returned by 6:30pm. Book online to secure your basket.

Everyone who participates on the day will go into the draw to win a double pass to a screening of Breakfast at Tiffany's at Moonlight Cinema in Botanic Park that evening, plus a $50 voucher to dine at Botanic Gardens Restaurant on any other day. Love Notes is proudly supported by Splash Adelaide.
