have already seen a poster or advertisement for this event. Has it already been approved?

Approval for an event requiring public consultation is only given after the consultation period has concluded and Council has had the opportunity to review any submissions.

Adelaide City Council discourages any event from promotions prior to Council approval. In some instances, there is a need for events to announce dates in each capital city. This however does not constitute Council approval for the event.

Is parking available at the event site?

No on-site parking is provided for this event, however many on-street and off-street options exist nearby. Public transport is also available in the vicinity of this event.

Can I expect noise where I live?

The event must also comply with the Adelaide City Council’s Noise Mitigation Standard Operating Procedures*. As a part of this the event organiser is required to provide a Noise Management Plan as a part of their lease documentation.

Residents in surrounding areas will be notified by the event organiser via a mail drop at least two weeks prior to the event detailing the event times and contact information for complaints or queries.

*Note: Adelaide City Council’s Noise Mitigation Standard Operating Procedures are currently under review and will be presented to Council on 8 July 2014.

How will the Park Lands be protected during their stay?

In addition to the standard requirements under the event lease, The Garden of Unearthly Delights will be responsible for minimising impacts on the Park Lands by following Adelaide City Council’s Standard Operating Procedures for Events in the Park Lands.

The event will be responsible for restoring the park to its original condition at the end of the event.Specifically the event organisers are committed to undertaking the following Park Lands protection measures:
  • Implementation of a Remediation Management and Internal Traffic Management Plan to minimise impact;
  • Installation of infrastructure that decreases the need for some heavy vehicles to enter the site;
  • The use of vehicles with low turf impact tyres where possible;
  • Defined areas where event vehicles will not be permitted;
  • The use of track matting or temporary floor surfaces to reduce impact on turf;
  • During the event, fragile areas will be protected with fencing from vehicle impact and pedestrians;
  • Installation of decking to be installed in high pedestrian areas; and
  • Watering schedule maintained throughout the event duration.

Will it cost to attend the event?

There is free entry into the multi-venue family friendly precinct. People can purchase meals and beverages and patronise the sideshow amusements. There are both free and ticketed performances, with prices varying from $15 to $65.

Will access to Rundle Park / Kadlitpina be affected during the event?

 Access to the park will be restricted for the duration of the event lease. Areas will be cordoned off for public safety for periods during the set up and pull down. The central pathway will remain open when possible and traffic marshals will be on site to ensure pedestrian and cyclist safety.

Once the event has opened, during peak pedestrian and cyclist transit times the central pathway will remain open. When pathways are blocked an alternate route will be indicated.
