Mount Lofty Botanic Garden upgrades

Mount Lofty Botanic Garden upgrades

What changes are coming?

Upgrades to trails:

To improve access to the horticultural displays and scenic vistas, some trails will be upgraded, including through Rhododendron Gully, Magnolia Gully, Fern Gully and the Nature Trail - which is part of the Heysen Trail.

Magnolia Gully pathways of this 700m trail have now been upgraded and are open to the public. The resurfaced pathways are now more accessible for people with prams/strollers, and have improved visitor access to this valuable living collection display. Please note that due to the steep gradient of this hilly garden, Magnolia Gully is not wheelchair accessible.

Nature Trail. A significant portion of this trail had been closed for a number of years due to damage through severe weather events. Works have been completed on this 800m trail, including repairs to the Heysen Trail which passes through the garden, improving safety making it more accessible. It has now reopened to visitors.

Rhododendron Gully and Fern Gully are both currently open, with just a few potential small pathway closures as more upgrades take place. You will still be able to walk all the way up and down the Gullies.

Minor path upgrades continue throughout the garden. Works are expected to be completed in spring 2022.

Upgrades to way-finding signage:

Installation of new way-finding signage and trail markers will also add to the visitor experience and appreciation of the Garden and its much loved vistas.

New public conveniences:

Old toilet blocks located at the lower car park will be rebuilt and include family facilities, accessible toilets and sheltering areas.
