Is it even Fringe if you don’t visit The Garden a few times?

The Garden of Unearthly Delights is a family-friendly hub of festival season, with plenty of shows for all ages. Under the shade of the gumtrees in Rundle Park, little kids – and kids at heart – can get their fill of comedy, circus, physical theatre, music, sideshows and more. 

They’ve also got plenty of room for picnics, pram-friendly front gates, purpose-built parenting rooms, and air-conditioned venues all season. 

There is still sooo many food and beverage outlets choices this year that even the pickiest of eaters will leave happy and full. Be sure to wander for a while before making your choices too, as they food & beverage offerings are spread out across the park.

The sideshow offerings are also endless with plenty of rides to amuse all age groups, and everyone’s favourite the Ferris Wheel is back for another year too.

Overall, The Garden of Unearthly Delights is a must do with the kids this Fringe season and there is plenty to see and do so we suggest allowing at least a few hours to really enjoy it, stroll through, eat and see everything.

Entry to the Garden is free for show ticket holders – in peak times, a small entry fee may be charged for non ticket holders. See the GOUD website for more info.

During summer months, everyone loves the pool and school holiday movie nights. There's plenty of trails and mountain bikes tracks suited to all ages and levels – the family could spend days exploring, looking for koalas, emus, kangaroos or the odd echidna. Behind the Holiday Park is the old Belair golf Course, which closed down a few years ago, but they’ve made a permanent orienteering course around it called the Birdie Loop.
