The Garden of Unearthly Delights

Adelaide Fringe Family Friendly Venues

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. 

This year everything is very spaced out to allow for social distancing and QR code check ins are everywhere be prepared to show them upon entry as they are being checked. The main difference this year is that due to capacity restrictions there are not as many options to walk in and watch shows, most will require pre booked tickets, so if there’s a show you want to check out make sure you pre book.

There is still sooo many food and beverage outlets choices this year that even the pickiest of eaters will leave happy and full. After you’ve finished in the garden take a walk over to Gluttony if Redskin icecream and Unicorn fairy floss is your thing!

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!

  • Where: Wycombe Street, Underdale This place was such a secret it took us years of playground hunting to find it! Located on the river linear park at Underdale, this playground is for the little kids around the 3-5 year mark. We loved the fireman's pole and the two small forts and bridges, with a lot of cool climbing equipment for which is just the height for those pre-school kids. We always love a flying fox, but this one was a bit too high for the little ones so a tip we picked up was to use a jumper to hook over the handles and drag it around. Problem solved! The back streets are nice and quiet but there is a busy bike path nearby so keep an eye out for passing bikes. There isn't any seats, bins, shade, BBQs or fencing but it is a great little spot. p.s We don't know who Charlie was but thanks for the playground buddy!

  • Located in beautiful Hahndorf, Udder Delights Cheese Cellar offers an all-day breakfast menu, meals for one or two, and a great selection of well-priced cheese boards. We each selected a cheese board for lunch and all were served with a piping hot, freshly toasted ciabatta roll. All of the cheese servings were extremely generous, and the boards were filling and excellent value. The Kids Board is unbeatable value at $10.95 and was declared by our 8-year-old to be the best meal she has ever eaten. The Kids Board is served with your choice of spread for the ciabatta roll, your choice of cheese, fresh or dried fruit, and a gingerbread man. The kids really enjoyed the hands-on experience of eating from the board and we were all able to enjoy a relaxing lunch while they savoured the experience. The cheese fondue we spied being enjoyed at a nearby table is top of our “To Eat” list on our next visit! Udder Delights have a great range of drinks on offer, with the hot and cold chocolates made with real chocolate, fantastic barista-made coffees, and a range of wines and beers for the grown-ups. The iced chocolates were the best we’ve…
