Adelaide Botanic Garden is buzzing after dark, as the popular Botanica Lumina program of events returns for 2022. 

On Tuesday 11th  and Wednesday 12th of January, Adelaide Botanic Gardens will host a spooky stroll, where eerie plants and creepy hollows send tingles down your spine.

As twilight descends, a family-friendly tour will take 7-12-year-olds and their parents through the shadows of Adelaide’s spookiest plants. 

Guests will tip-toe through the garden in a small group, and learn that danger hides within the leaves around you, and that beautiful flowers with enchanting aromas hide ghastly secrets.

From 9:30pm-10:30pm, an (18+) Adult Tour Tour will commence. 

So what is it that makes these plants so scary? Why should we be wary of these wondrous plants when encountering them in the natural world?

Botanic Gardens of South Australia Horticulturalist Dr Mortimer Nightshade will uncover all the secrets during this experience you dare not forget. 

Botanic Gardens and State Herbarium Director, Michael Harvey, is thrilled that Botanica Lumina is taking place again to delight visitors, who will get to experience the iconic garden in sensational ways.

As you explore the depths of the dark gardens, guests will discover what truly lurks in the shadows. 

Spooky plants and where to find them is a delightfully funny guided stroll through Adelaide Botanic Garden that is equally eerie and endearing. 

Tickets are available for $25 pp, Infants are free.
