Mt Lofty Botanic Gardens part 4
The lower part of the Mt Lofty Botanic Gardens features a large artificial lake as shown in the above photo. Around this lake many people enjoy picnics and barbecues when they come to visit. A feature of this lake is the abundant bird life, especially the water birds.
These beautiful gardens are a very pleasant half hour drive from the Adelaide CBD. It is worth visiting at different times of the year. Not everything flowers in the spring and summer months. In autumn the deciduous trees put on a magnificent display.
