Catching an Adelaide Metro service doesn't work for everyone, but with so many road closures, parking is at a premium on Pageant Day.
Here are some handy paid parking locations near the Pageant route.
Rudolph's Community Site is a special reserved area located on Wakefield Street that is accessible only by an official pass.
Please note applications for official passes to Rudolphs' Community Site are now exhausted, and access to this site is fully booked.
The site caters for the following groups with pre-arranged official passes:
Patients from the Women's and Children's Hospital (and their career or immediate family) can access the Site with their WCH identification wristband upon arrival.
Those requiring wheelchair access (and their carer or immediate family) can do so without wristbands or official passes
Disabled toilets are located nearby.
As the site is a reserved space, attendees can arrive later in the morning. There is also a special bus drop-off zone, and great team of volunteers to provide assistance and face painters to add a bit more fun!
Attendees are invited to bring along low chairs, picnic blankets and cushions to sit on.
Now that you've read all of our important route, transport and accessibilty information, here are some other handy hints for Pageant Day.
