Good Evening, Adelaide.

In consultation with the community, Adelaide City Council and the State Government, through the Capital City Committee, have developed the draft ‘Good Evening, Adelaide’ strategy for experiencing the City after 5pm.

The draft Strategy has been informed by research and data about our City as well as extensive stakeholder engagement on Adelaide’s nightlife, including the Growing Adelaide’s Evening Economy Forum, the Adelaide After Dark Form, the Picture Adelaide Project and a series of other workshops and consultations.

This has helped to identify the City’s strengths and weaknesses, and ignite ideas and opportunities to improve the experience and offering of our City in the early evening (5-8pm), night (8pm-1am), late night (1am-3am) and early morning (3am-6am).

    Since Good Evening, Adelaide has been developed a number of benefits have already been realised, including the upgrade and improvement of the City of Adelaide What’s On website and the development of a weekly ‘What’s On’ e-newsletter, which provides news on what’s happening in the City. There has also been an increase in the number of small venues operating in the City, an increase in outdoor dining applications, AdelaideFree WiFi coverage across the City and improved frequency, coverage and operating hours of the Free City Connector Bus.

    Adelaide City Council and the State Government will continue to work collaboratively with the community and sector groups to build on these benefits, boost the night-time economy and deliver opportunities to ensure Adelaide is a fun, welcoming, exciting and economically prosperous City – day and night, all year round.

    State Government has a strategic priority of ‘Creating a Vibrant City’ and ‘Safe Communities, Healthy Neighbourhoods.'

    The objectives of this strategy is to:

    • Bridge the gap between daytime and nighttime use of the City
    • Increase the number of people in the City in the evening and at night
    • Expand the ways people use the City in the evening and at night
    • Improve communication and promotion of the evening, night and late night offering
    • Create an inviting and safer evening, night and late night experience to improve perceptions of safety
    • Raise awareness of the evening, night and late night economy and its potential to contribute to the economic, social & cultural development of the City among policy makers, businesses and key sectors
    • Develop a shared vision, strategy and action plan for its implementation.
