Pedestrian Detours

Pedestrian and vehicle access has changed. Please click here for a pedestrian access map.

Festival Theatre and The Star Kitchen and Bar are open with their new entrance on the Northern Promenade, at King William Road and Elder Park. The Northern Promenade is a smooth, stair-free path that connects King William Road with the Riverbank Footbridge and provides access to all Adelaide Festival Centre venues. 

Dunstan Playhouse, Space Theatre, Artspace Gallery, and Neon are best accessed from the Riverbank Footbridge. From North Terrace, walk north between the Intercontinental Hotel and the Railway Station. From Adelaide Oval and War Memorial Drive, walk south over the Riverbank Footbridge. There is an accessible drop off area available for patrons with disability and mobility impairment on the lower level of Festival Drive (west) accessible from Montefiore Road.
