Access to Adelaide Festival Centre during the redevelopment

The redevelopment of Adelaide Riverbank is a once in a generation opportunity for South Australia. Throughout the redevelopment, access points to Adelaide Festival Centre may change. We will ensure your visit to Adelaide Festival Centre for DreamBIG Children's Festival is as enjoyable and easy as possible by:
• Emailing each school booker to advise them of specific access points for their booking and the venue/s they will need to access
• Having festival volunteers stationed at access points to help guide you in the right direction
• Making the most up-to-date information available online.
• Ensuring clear signage is displayed at all venues and access points

Adelaide Metro 

Please note school students can travel free on trains, buses and trams between 9.30am and 3pm. However, if you need to travel earlier than 9.30am please inform Adelaide Metro and stagger the numbers travelling at any one time.

Travel Assistance

Title the email ‘Transport Assistance’. Subject to availability. Any non-equity school that can’t use public transport, and must use an alternative form of paid transport that would make their visit prohibitive, can request equity-priced tickets to DreamBIG events at the time of booking.
