Friends of the Botanic Gardens


The Friends of the Botanic Gardens of Adelaide (FBGA) is a non-profit organisation established in 1977, to foster interest in the activities of the Botanic Gardens of Adelaide and raise funds for the benefit of the Gardens.

The FBGA is a volunteer organisation which supports the Botanic Gardens of South Australia, comprising Adelaide, Mt Lofty & Wittunga BGs.  FBGA always welcomes new members.

General Meetings are held four times a year, as well as 2 'Twilight Talks" with speakers on interesting Garden topics.


The Friends of the Botanic Garden intend to reopen the North Lodge Shop as a retail Outlet.

We are seeking interest from Wholesalers who could supply Botanical, Horticultural or Environmental Themed Giftware, Books and Sounvenirs

if you can supply this type of items please contact the Friends Office on Email:  friendsabg@internode.on.net
