Head to the hills for an autumn spectacular

With likely record autumn crowds in the Adelaide Hills this long weekend, free shuttle buses and extra car parking are being put on for visitors to the region’s many natural wonders.

A free shuttle bus service will run every 30 minutes from 10am to 4pm, from the 23 – 25 April.

The bus will travel from the Crafers Park N Ride to Mount Lofty Botanic Garden’s upper entrance, Mount Lofty Summit, Cleland Wildlife Park (with additional parking), and return.

Another free shuttle bus service will run every 30 minutes departing Crafers Park N Ride to Piccadilly Oval (where additional parking will be available for a gold coin donation), Mount Lofty Botanic Garden’s lower entrance off Lampert Road, and return.

Visitors are encouraged to take public transport (check Adelaide Metro timetables) to Crafers Park N Ride and look for A-frame signs marking each shuttle bus stop.

Mount Lofty Botanic Garden will also have extended opening hours, from 9am – 5pm.

Background

The extra services have been organised in anticipation of record crowds heading to the Hills to enjoy iconic experiences such as Mount Lofty Botanic Garden’s autumn colours.

The additional services are being supported by Mount Lofty Botanic Garden, Cleland Wildlife Park and Mount Lofty Summit, with additional backing from the Adelaide Hills Council and Piccadilly Valley Community Recreation Centre.

Quotes attributable to Environment Minister Ian Hunter

Autumn visitors are enjoying breathtaking views, and people are arriving in unprecedented numbers, prompted by amazing images on social media.

A post on the gardens’ Facebook featuring images shot by visitors reached more than 212,000 people and was shared almost 1,500 times in just a few days.

Last weekend more than 10,000 people visited the gardens – eclipsing crowds at the Gardens’ Corpse Flower event in December – streaming through to experience the stunning autumn panorama of scarlets, bronzes and yellows.

We’re thrilled to offer the public the best chance possible to see the autumn show before the colour fades, as well as other nature-based tourism assets, such as Cleland Wildlife Park.
