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.
