Will access to Bonython Park/Tulya Wardli be affected during the event?

For the purposes of public safety access to the lease area will be restricted during set up and pull down, however pathways will remain open at all times.
During the event period access to the lease area will be restricted to the event opening hours of 3.00pm to midnight daily, however this will not affect access to the adjacent paths.

How will the Park Lands be protected during their stay?

In addition to the standard requirements under the event lease, The Adelaide Christmas Tree Festival 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 at the end of the event.

The event organiser has also committed to hand watering during the event to help maintain the grass in the lease area.

Can I expect noise where I live?

The Adelaide Christmas Tree Festival will be required to comply with Adelaide City Council’s Noise Mitigation Standard Operating Procedures.  However due to the nature of the event, it is not expected that it will generate a large amount of noise.  The predicted noise levels are within accepted guidelines for an event of this nature

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