Find it at: Walter Young Ave, Urrbrae

Urrbrae House is an amazing precinct for families to explore- including a museum! It is located on the Waite Campus of the University of Adelaide on land bequeathed by Peter Waite to the University in 1992. The land is used for agricultural research and teaching, as well as an area for public recreation. The precinct consists of an accredited museum, huge gardens, the Coach House and the Waite Historic Precinct. There’s many areas to explore and so much interesting flora to investigate. Check out the Rose Garden, Sensory Garden, Garden of Discovery and the Labyrinth. With so much to explore and discover, Urrbrae House is a winner.

The gardens have plenty of parking but can include a bit of walking so wear comfortable clothing and footwear so you can explore all areas. Bare in mind that disabled access is limited in some areas, particularly Urrbrae House (due to stairs), but there are paths to allow wheelchair access for the majority of the park. Disability parking is available, but limited. Enter through Gate 3 from Waite Road and head west for disabled parking.

There are cafe’s nearby on Fullarton Road for a food and drink. You can always grab a sausage roll, some sandwiches and a bunch of fruit for a picnic in the gardens. Yummo!
