The "Friends Gates" were donated by the Friends of the Botanic Gardens of Adelaide to commemorate the South Australian Jubilee Year in 1986. 1986 marked the 150th anniversary of the European colonisation of South Australia.

The British Province of South Australia was established by the South Australia Act 1834 in August 1834, and the South Australian Company formed on 9 October 1835 to fulfil the purposes of the Act by forming a new colony financed by land sales. The first settlers arrived on Kangaroo Island in July 1836, with all of the ships later sailing north soon afterwards to anchor in Holdfast Bay on the advice of Surveyor-General, Colonel William Light. The Proclamation of the new Province by Governor Hindmarsh at Glenelg took place on 28 December 1836.
