Adelaide is in the midst of Fringe Festival fever, and the Garden of Unearthly Delights is in full swing in Adelaide’s Rundle Park – it may not be the first location thought of as access friendly, but you might be pleasantly surprised.
Despite The Garden’s location with natural steep pathways and the use of antique wooden theatres, the team has worked hard to ensure accessibility for as many events as possible through the installation of ramps and pathways.
Wheelchair access is available in The Factory, Cupola, Campanile, Umbrella Revolution, La Cascadeur, Aurora Spiegeltent, Vagabond, Studio 7 and The Deluxe. Only one venue is not wheelchair accessible – The Spare Room.
The Garden provides accessible toilets and there are designated accessible parking bays adjacent to the park.
All bars on site have ramps and counters at an accessible height.
Prior to the Fringe, all front-of-house staff underwent disability awareness training run by Access2Arts, a disability-led organisation that works to increase and support the professional development of artists with disability.
The Garden of Unearthly Delights is open for business until March 15.
You can contact the Garden if you have any special needs or feedback relating to accessibility – they’d love to hear from you on 7200 3867 or firstname.lastname@example.org
