What you need to know
Adelaide's figurative heart of activities and events has recently been given an extensive facelift, bringing it up to date with more modern facilities and design touches to make Victoria Square a much more current entertainment hub. It's a great starting point for first-time visitors to Adelaide, with its central location serving both a convenient rendezvous and departure point for exploring the city. The redevelopment brought with it a relocated tram line and extended tram stop, impressive water feature, terraces and perimeter gardens, and a relocation of its iconic Three Rivers Fountain.
Of course, at its core it's "just a park", but the Square truly comes alive when hosting some of the city's most significant events - including the likes of Adelaide Fringe, Tour Down Under and various other happenings throughout the year. If visiting during a blank slate on the calendar, take the time to walk amongst calming fountains, relax in the shade, bring a book and sprawl under a tree, or take the kids along to play in the sandpits.
