Nature / Garden
It is easy to call the Adelaide Botanic Garden an oasis in the middle of the city, but that is really what it is – an oasis that spans over 123 beautifully landscaped acres. The jewel at the centre is the Palm House, an exquisitely restored Victorian glasshouse that was imported from Bremen, Germany in 1875. Step inside and you’ll be greeted by a collection of Madagascan plants, many of which are endangered in their native habitat. Don’t forget to also ogle the UFO-looking, 1989-built conservatory which is the largest single-span glasshouse in the southern hemisphere.
