When the weather starts getting warmer, there is nothing nicer than enjoying a peaceful picnic in a gorgeous spot. So where is Adelaide's best picnic spot? From gorgeous hideaways, to natural wonders, we know there are some beautiful places in Adelaide that make a lovely place to picnic and we want your help in finding them.
The McLaren Vale wine region is a gorgeous place to picnic, especially if you feel like sitting down to a bottle of wine and some tasty local produce. Wirra Wirra have got a great picnic spot at their winery, where you can also cook up a barbecue, you could also choose the pickers hut at Shottesbrooke Vineyards and watch the pickers at work. At the Olive Grove you can picnic amongst the olive trees, with some friendly alpacas nearby and a lovely lake to look out on.
For one of the most diverse picnic spots, check out the Adelaide Botanic Garden. There are some beautiful picnic spots here, either by a babbling brook or under a towering gum. With so many gorgeous gardens from all over the world you can find a unique area to set up your picnic basket.
You can picnic amongst the trees at Kuitpo Forrest. You can find Australian gums, or tall pines, and after you've eaten you can also go for a bit of a hike. If you're feeling like a walk you could also try the Mt Lofty Summit, hike up the top first and then enjoy the great view of Adelaide as you eat your lunch.
Around the city centre there are some lovely picnic spots too. Lundie Gardens on South Terrace is filled with gorgeous water features and beautiful flowers. You can sit by the lake at Rymill Park, or see the swans riverside at Elder Park.
There are so many great places to picnic in Adelaide, so we want to know your favourite spot. It may be a favourite park or playground, or a place of natural beauty. Where d you like to picnic?
Without a doubt Tusmore Park would have to be adelaides best picnic spot. with big shady trees and lots and lots of green grass its the perfect spot. Theres a playground, room to kick a footy, huge undercover paddling pool with fountains for the kids, tennis courts and a creek running through it with bridges. Theres also bbqs and public toilets. Beautiful at any time of year. we've even been known to picnic there in mid winter :)
