Artist and audiences travel from all over the world to experience the unique summer fun of Adelaide Fringe – the festival that literally takes over the city.
Most of the Fringe action takes place at night, so your days are free to explore the ‘festival state’. South Australia boasts hundreds of kilometres of white sandy beaches, the famous Barossa Valley wine region, and the lush wildlife haven of Kangaroo Island.
South Australia’s capital city has it all. With spacious boulevards and vibrant inner-city districts, sophisticated architecture and lush gardens, there is plenty of accommodation to choose from, Adelaide is the perfect venue for all sorts of holiday activities – big or small.
During Fringe time the Adelaide CBD comes alive, with hundreds of thousands of people experiencing special free events such as the Opening Night Fringe Parade, the Adelaide Fringe Street Theatre Festival, Spirit Festival, art exhibitions and more.
Other attractions that are worth a visit whilst in Adelaide include the North Terrace precinct, home to the SA Museum and Art Gallery. There’s great shopping in Rundle Mall, that’s where you will also find our Fringe in the Mall- showcase stage, bouncing with all the Fringe artists, if you see something you fancy the FringeTIX box office is right there.
You could also visit the famed Adelaide Central Market, sip award-winning wines at the National Wine Centre, follow in the footsteps of sporting champions at the world-famous Adelaide Oval, or catch the Tram to the seaside to Glenelg Beach.
