City of Adelaide

A message from the Lord Mayor of Adelaide:

Council continues to be a proud supporting partner of the Torrens Transit Carols by Candlelight, located in one of our city’s most beautiful and iconic community spaces, Elder Park. This traditional gathering on the banks of the River Torrens / Karrawirra Parri is a delightful way for family and friends to spend time together to celebrate the festive season, in a city designed for life.

This Christmas, Adelaide is once again filled with magical and joyous experiences for everyone. Victoria Square / Tarntanyangga is even more spectacular this year with the festive event - Christmas Lights, Festive Nights - taking place from 13 to 22 December.

There is so much happening in the city at this time of year and I encourage you to find out the latest community event details, gift guides and festive food ideas at

Most importantly, Christmas is about spending time with loved ones and giving back to those less fortunate. On behalf of my family and City of Adelaide, I wish you peace, joy and a very Merry Christmas.
