Botanica Lumina





The safety and well-being of visitors, volunteers and staff is our highest priority, so as a precautionary measure during COVID-19, many events have been postponed.

The Botanic Gardens and State Herbarium team is currently working on a revised Botanica Lumina program in line with current and future COVID-19 restrictions on events and the partners we are working with. 

The focus of the reviewed program for 2020/2021 will be about forming new partnerships and creating exceptional visitor experiences that are safe for the general public, while providing opportunities for the creative industries to collaborate on projects in our world-class gardens.  

Many of the activities included in the original 2020 program have been postponed or, in some cases, cancelled. We are working with the affected organisations to reschedule activities where practical, however, we cannot guarantee all previously promoted program items will return.

Be enchanted by Adelaide Botanic Garden after dark with Botanica Lumina, a curated program of evening events that will keep you entertained through the cooler months.

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.
