A charming Victorian Glasshouse

Palm Court - Adelaide Botanical Gardens

The palm court in the Adelaide botanical gardens, dates back to the Victorian era and whilst such a glass house is very suitable for the kew gardens in the UK, It may just get a fraction hot in Adelaide, so no wonder the place is now specializes for the dry vegetation of Madagascar, and just one palm.

The glasshouse was imported from Bremen In Germany in 1875, and is thought to be the only one of its kind.
