The Adelaide City Council has received an application from Events South Australia for the use of Victoria Square / Tarndanyangga to enable the Tour Down Under Tour Village to take place. It is anticipated that the Tour Village will attract approximately 5000 people daily. Opening hours vary across the event days with 24 hour security onsite.
The Tour Village will occupy both the north and south sections on the central area of Victoria Square / Tarndanyangga. In previous years the tour village has only operated in the southern section of the square. The southern area will operate as the official team hub, as it has done in previous years, while the newly proposed northern section will operate as a cycling expo and demonstration area.
Approximately 70 teams, officials and tour parade vehicles are housed each night in the tour village hub, generally departing at 9.30am and arriving back at 4.30pm.
The Village has an outdoor area that offers the public food, drink and other attractions related to the event. Alcohol is available and Events South Australia will apply for the appropriate Liquor Licence.
The event will introduce a number of temporary structures onto the site, including marquees, fencing, generators, vehicles, catering and a large outdoor television screen.
Consultation has concluded
