Find it all in Rundle Mall this Gather Round

Immerse yourself amongst the action of Gather Round, as it officially takes over the city. Play on after the siren and go for goal, as you pass the AFL goal posts marking both entrances of the Mall, before making your way through to witness the giant 9.5-metre tall inflatable Sherrin football, standing proudly in the Gawler Place intersection!

Heading to the game? Or wanting to still embrace the fervour of the city in this Festival of Footy? Stop past the Footy Bar in the Gawler Place Canopy, for a pre- or post-match drink, or to catch the matches live streamed across the weekend. From Wednesday - Sunday, opening at 11am, sit back and relax with beverage in hand at the Footy Bar, thanks to the Mollydooker MollyVan pop-up bar. Watch all the matches as they're broadcasted live on the big screen across the entire weekend - but no yelling at the TV please!
