WHAT YOU VISIT
Built to celebrate Australia's bicentenary in 1988, it's the largest single-span conservatory in the Southern Hemisphere. Located in the Adelaide Botanic Garden, the conservatory houses waterfalls, rock pools and lowland tropical rain forest plants from Northern Australia, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and the nearby Pacific Islands, many that are at risk or are endangered in their natural habitats.
The Palm House
Established in 1875, this Victorian masterpiece was once the pre-cursor to the conservatory. Fully restored in 1992, it's believed to be the only one still in existence today
South Australia Museum
Founded in 1856, the museum depicts the history of one of the world's oldest continuous living cultures in an exciting, contemporary context. Acclaimed as the site of the world's largest collection of Australian Aboriginal material, the 3,000 artifacts on display cover Aboriginal culture, flora and fauna, and fossils.
Pause for photos at Montefiore Hill for a look at Light's Vision-the statue of the city's founder, William Light. From this vantage point, you can admire the views across the parklands, the Torrens River and the Adelaide Hills.
