What changes are coming?

Adelaide Botanic Garden was assigned funding for upgrades.

1) Upgrade of public amenities

The following free standing toilet facilities have been demolished and rebuilt in the same location with modern, sustainable practices to include toilets, family rooms with provision for children, and accessible toilets:

  • Simpson Kiosk (E6 - next to the Main Lake) - NOW OPEN.
  • Classgrounds (B10 - adjacent to Plane Tree Drive, Botanic Park) - NOW OPEN This will have a Changing Places toilet facility.
  • Francis Arbor (G4 - on the western border shared with Lot Fourteen) - NOW OPEN.

The following toilets, which are located within larger buildings, have also been upgraded. The renovations have improved ventilation and enhanced the visitor experience.

  • Schomburgk Pavilion (E10 - next to the Museum of Economic Botany and Diggers Shop). These are now open.
  • Noel Lothian Hall (D15 - at the back of the Tram Barn, near the Rose Garden, opposite the Little Sprouts Kitchen Garden.) These are now open.

2) LED lighting in Botanic Park

New LED lighting is being installed along key pathways in Botanic Park and within Adelaide Botanic Garden to improve safety and access for after-dark events. Installation will begin in September 2023 and likely to be completed Autumn 2024.
