First opened in 1977, Mount Lofty Botanic Garden is situated on the eastern slopes of Mount Lofty in the Adelaide Hills, east of Adelaide. The botanic garden is dedicated to the cultivation and display of the world’s cool-climate plants, which thrive in the Adelaide Hills.

It’s a much-loved botanic garden destination where people, plants and biodiversity come together. It’s popular throughout the year and draws large crowds for its stunning springtime floral display and breathtaking autumn colours.

The original Masterplan for the garden was developed in 2006.

The community is now being asked what they would like to see in the botanic garden in the future – this information will be used to develop a  revised and updated Masterplan for the garden.

A number of ideas have been put forward for discussion. The proposed concepts are designed to enhance the access and experience for visitors, whilst maintaining, protecting and enabling the activation of the garden, its collections of plants and its biodiversity for current and future generations.
