Begun in 1996, the National Rose Trial Garden is the first garden of its kind in Australia where roses are tested for their suitability for Australian climates. The Garden is a joint venture between the Botanic Gardens of Adelaide, the National Rose Trial Society of Australia and the rose industry. It has been built on part of the former Municipal Tramways Trust Hackney Depot. Roses are planted in groups such as, Noisette Roses, Bourbon Roses, Tea Roses, Ramblers, and Perpetual Roses. A trial is conducted over two growing seasons and all plants are treated equally with regard to horticultural practices. The roses are judged by a panel of 10 experienced rosarians who view them and allocate points over the two growing seasons. The results are announced publicly at the end of the trial and the best performing roses receive an award.

kayjay48 Auckland, New Zealand Level Contributor 7 reviews 5 attraction reviews 1 helpful vote “A great way to spend a couple of hours.” Reviewed 3 days ago NEW We had a day to spend in Adelaide without a car and decided on having a look at the Botanic Garden as it was close to the hotel. We were very glad we did. The garden is of a size that makes it easy to walk around it in a couple of hours, but there is plenty to see. Helpful? Thank kayjay48 Report

From the first official survey carried out for the map of Adelaide, Colonel William Light intended for the planned city to have a ‘botanical garden’. To this end, he designated a naturally occurring Ait of land that had formed in the course of the River Torrens. However, it wasn’t until 1854, after a public appeal to Governor Sir Henry Young that gardens were established at the current location. They were founded the following year and officially opened in 1857. The garden’s design was influenced by the Royal Gardens at Kew, England and Versailles, France.

The Museum of Economic Botany is dedicated to the collection and interpretation of ‘useful’ plants. It was established by Schomburgk in 1879 and described as “the last purpose-built colonial museum in the world” is located within the Gardens a short distance to the west. Built in Greek revival style and opened in May 1881, the building and its interior were extensively restored during 2008-09. The restoration works were assisted by a grant from the Government of Australia for $1.125 million and sponsorship by South Australian oil and gas company, Santos. The sponsorship arrangement also included naming rights and a commitment to ongoing support of the museum’s exhibition program. Much of the collection originally on display in 1881 has been reinstated including a collection of papier mache and stucco replicas of various fruit and fungi. A unique contemporary space for temporary exhibitions within the museum was created by Khai Liew Design. Displays of aboriginal artifacts, a subject neglected by the original museum, were prepared in collaboration with the South Australian Museum. The museum is notable for the completeness of its preservation. The building, its interior decoration, showcases, collections and even many labels have survived since as early as 1865. The Museum of Economic Botany is on the Register of the National Estate, Register of State Heritage Items, Register of the City of Adelaide Heritage Items and has been classified by the National Trust of Australia.
