The Friends of the Botanic Gardens of Adelaide volunteer guides offer free guided walks in the Botanic Gardens. A group of 5 people or more can book walks in Adelaide, Mount Lofty or Wittunga on a topic, and at a time and date to suit them. (Please note that booked walks are not available on the third or fifth Wednesday of the month) 

Guides can also be booked for bus tours of Mount Lofty Botanic Garden. You must provide your own mini-bus – maximum capacity 20 seater – due to the tight turns and narrow roadways within the Gardens. 

To book for a walk or bus tour, please fill in this form and return to

In 2024 the cost will be pre-paid $5 per person for community and not-for-profit groups, and $10pp for commercial organisations. All monies raised from booked walks contribute to the upkeep and facilities in the Botanic Gardens of Adelaide.

Please book your tour 4 weeks in advance.

We endeavour to provide a Guide for all walks requested. However, as we are volunteers, occasionally a request cannot be met. We require bookings to be made at least 14 days prior to the date of walk/bus tour. Once a Guide has been allocated, they will contact the group organiser to confirm details. The cost for commercial organisations is $10 per person (invoiced 14 days prior to walk for immediate payment by Bank Transfer). The cost for community and not-for-profit groups is $5 per person (payable in cash on the day or by Bank Transfer).
