Guided walks


 

 

Specially-trained and passionate volunteer Garden Guides – from the Friends of the Botanic Gardens of Adelaide – conduct free guided walks for the public at Adelaide, Mount Lofty and Wittunga Botanic Gardens.

Each guided walk lasts about an hour-and-a-half and no booking is required (unless in a group of five or more).

Special interest walks – from history to Aboriginal plant use, and from heritage buildings to sculpture and much more – are also available for groups. A small charge per person may apply.
