Free long weekend shuttle bus for Mount Lofty Botanic Garden, Summit and Cleland

Free long weekend shuttle bus for Mount Lofty Botanic Garden, Summit and Cleland

Date posted: 21 April 2016

With bumper autumn crowds expected to swell in the Hills this long weekend, free all-day shuttle buses and additional carparking will allow visitors to see the region’s most iconic sights with ease.

A free shuttle bus service will run every 30 minutes – from 10am to 4pm, Saturday 23 April to ANZAC Day Monday – departing Crafers Park N Ride to Mount Lofty Botanic Garden’s upper entrance, Mount Lofty Summit, Cleland Wildlife Park (where additional carparking will be available) and return.

Another free shuttle bus service will run every 30 minutes departing Crafers Park N Ride to Piccadilly Oval (cnr Piccadilly Road and Atkinson Avenue, where additional parking will be available for a gold coin donation), Mount Lofty Botanic Garden’s lower entrance off Lampert Road and return.

The last bus is scheduled to depart Mount Lofty Botanic Garden at 4pm (but don't stress - we'll do our best to ensure no one is left behind).

Visitors are encouraged to take advantage of public transport (check Adelaide Metro timetables) to Crafers Park N Ride and to look for A-frame signs marking each shuttle bus stop.

Mount Lofty Botanic Garden will also extend its opening hours, opening at 9am and closing at 5pm.

The free shuttle bus and additional parking comes as record crowds head to the Hills to enjoy iconic experiences such as Mount Lofty Botanic Garden’s autumn colours, which drew more than 10,000 visitors last weekend.

The service has come together through a partnership between Mount Lofty Botanic Garden, Cleland Wildlife Park and Mount Lofty Summit, with the support of Adelaide Hills Council and Piccadilly Valley Community Recreation Centre.

See you there!
