Explore festive delights in the Arcade

Christmas has well and truly arrived in Adelaide Arcade! Explore their magical display of decorations, with the Arcade swathed in an array of traditionally hued baubles, hanging garlands, and twinkling trees. Don't forget to look up too! Red and white hot air balloons transport presents to their lucky recipients, whilst the toy soldiers herald the arrival of visitors at the Mall entrance. The famous underground tea rooms in Adelaide Arcade have also been transformed into Santa’s Workshop! Look through the glass floor to see Santa’s elves working on getting your gifts ready for Christmas. If you're visiting with little ones, pick up a free brochure to follow a very festive Christmas trail - and stop by the gingerbread house photo moment (and tag @adelaidearcade!).
