Historical Trees and Plantings

Join John Sandham from the Botanic Gardens and State Herbarium as he takes you on a guided tour through Adelaide Botanic Garden to learn about our most historically significant trees and plantings.

Since it opened as Adelaide Botanic Garden to the public in 1857, there have been countless changes to the space. We’ve seen the construction and demolition of many buildings, and constant additions to its living plant collections. With a focus on conservation, many plants now have global significance and importance.

Delve into the fascinating botanical history of the Garden on this leisurely stroll.
