The atmosphere changes as you walk through the door...you can feel the quietness...it's like stepping back into the past.

The Palm House in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens is an exquisite restored Victorian glasshouse imported from Bremen in Germany in 1875 and thought to be the only one of its kind in the world.

The Palm House was opened in 1877 and has been a focus in the garden since that time. It features a fascinating collection of plants from the island of Madagascar, once part of the great supercontinent Gondwana. About 150 million years ago, Madagascar and Australia were still part of Gondwana, its evolving flora producing the ancient ancestors of today’s modern native plants. Many of the plants are at risk or endangered in their natural habitat.

The unique aridland flora of south western Madagascar receives much of its water as mist or dew. The plants are therefore provided with their water requirements with light misting, minimising corrosion of the ironwork. This unusual plant display attracts much attention.

The Palm House is an outstanding heritage building of significant international importance and will continue to be a much loved attraction in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens, South Australia, for generations to come.
