Stunning gardens to visit in autumn. We loved the change in seasons and had a very enjoyable walk around. Lovely place to take in the scenery and fresh air. So glad we took the time to visit.

I parked at the top carpark (there's a more popular bottom carpark too) and walked around the perimeter until I found the bottom large pond and picnic areas. A wonderful escape, peaceful. It got a bit steep walking back up to the top, but very pleasant nonetheless. Was not like a botanic garden that I expected - having lived in Sydney my whole life. The Syd Botanic Gardens are much more manicured, whereas the Mt Lofty Botanic Gardens are more wild, less manicured and much larger too.

In summary, confusing. Even though we had a map, most of the time we had no idea where we were because of the poor signposting. There seems to be trails all over the place that aren’t marked on the map and junctions of pathways with no signs or directions. Usually you get something like “A” via “B” 900m or “A” via “C” 200m so you decide where to go and what to see. Unfortunately, not here. In addition, remember that the park is on the side of a mountain so many of the paths are steep with a rough surface. Make sure you have good shoes and are sure footed before heading into the gullies, otherwise stay on the wider, flatter pathways. A nice place to spend some time, even if you’re lost.

Mount Lofty Botanic Garden is around 15 km (20 minutes) from Adelaide. There is always something interesting to see. Some of the vegetation is native, some is exotic. It's quite a wild area, you are likely to see some native animals, but please don't feeed them. By the way, Mt Lofty is the highest point in the Adelaide Hills, you will get a goodf view pver the city.

The Mount Lofty Garden is in the Adelaide Hills. Mount Lofty tends to be a bit cooler then the city of Adelaide. Amongst other things, the garden has rose beds, camilias, azaelias, rhododendrons and orchids. The large cream mognolias are impressive. The Mount Lofty Garden is around 20 minutes drive from Adelaide'

Picnic in one of the Gazebos in the Spring morning sunshine listening to bird song and surrounded by Camellias how delightful.
This is a wonderful place to spend a few hours and all for free.

Mount Lofty is the high point of the Adelaide Hills. The Mt Lofty Garden is 15 km (around 20 minutes drive) from the Adelaide CBD. The Garden has a variety of flora, which attract native animals -- look, but please don't feed. The garden beds are quite lovely, Some of the plants are natives, some a from around the globe. Whether you're here for a leisurely ramble or a vigorous hike, you are likely to find something interesting.

Great gardens- lots of comfortable paths with plenty to see and marvel at. Some of the paths were very steep so you need to be fit or take your time.

A beautiful tranquil place to walk. It is important to study the map and plan as the signage can be interesting. Parking charges apply

30 minute drive from city centre up into the hills provides a nice relief if wishing to get out of the metropolis.
