The tour will take place outdoors in the Gardens, so please wear appropriate footwear (closed shoes) and dress to the weather conditions. The weather can be quite mild in the Gardens, with spontaneous light rain and wind from time to time, so we recommend bringing a suitable outdoor jacket.

Toilets and refreshments are available in the Garden.

The event will go ahead in wet weather and will only be cancelled in extreme weather conditions (ie. storms, hail). We will notify you prior to the event if it is cancelled and to reschedule the event. Refunds will only apply if the event is cancelled or you are not available to attend the rescheduled event.


Adelaide Botanic Garden is wheelchair accessible from all gates with bitumen paths provided throughout the Garden, however patrons are advised that some of this tour takes place on grass surfaces and natural walking tracks.
