Botanica Lumina



Be enchanted by Adelaide Botanic Garden after dark with Botanica Lumina, a curated program of evening events.

Immerse yourself in live music, art installations, film events, heritage tours, botanically inspired food tastings and science events under a magical luminary backdrop.

Each of the events in the Botanica Lumina program will be uniquely complemented by our brand new lighting infrastructure. These environmentally sustainable lights will showcase the beauty of the botanical wonderland so, at each event, you will be able to see, hear and feel the Garden like never before.

These awe-inspiring illuminations are not available for viewing outside of the programmed events, so check out the program below to ensure you don't miss out.
