Mount Lofty Botanic Garden’s Rhododendron is one of the most extensive and impressive gullies of the Garden, boasting one of Australia’s best Rhododendron collections. Better still, October and November are the best times to see it in full bloom, with the Gully becoming a vibrant sea of colour!
The Friends of the Botanic Gardens of Adelaide will hold guided walks through the iconic gully in October and November, offering visitors the chance to get up close and personal with these beautiful and fascinating flowers.
Why not gather a group of friends to visit and enjoy the splendours of the Hills garden in spring time? There are plenty of delightful cafes in the area for lunch or afternoon tea to complete the outing.
All walks will leave the Lower Car Park – off Lampert Road, Piccadilly – at 2pm. Good walking shoes are necessary as there are some steep paths.
As October and November are peak season in Rhododendron Gully, bookings for the guided walks are essential. Call the booking officer on 8226 8803 to secure your spot.
