About Festival Plaza

Station entry art opportunity

We're seeking expressions of interest from artists to deliver a significant, large-scale, ceiling based public art installation as part of the redevelopment of the Adelaide Festival Plaza.

Plaza vision

The upgraded Festival Plaza will become a unique, world-class hub for the arts, culture, tourism and entertainment.

Design concepts

A number of key ‘places’ will define the redeveloped plaza: the new square, the northern promenade and the Art Space Plaza.

A reimagined Station Road, new Adelaide Railway Station entry and stronger integration with King William Street will connect the Adelaide Riverbank to the CBD better than ever before.

Redevelopment schedule

A staged approach to construction works aims to limit the impact on Riverbank visitors and those businesses located in the immediate surrounds.

Project progress

The following timelapse video shows the Festival Plaza and Adelaide Casino early works June 2018–September 2018.

Community engagement

There has been strong community support for an upgrade of the plaza and to take the once-in-a-generation opportunity to establish a world-class meeting space that all South Australians can be proud of and will want to spend time in.
