About this event

How did Adelaide Fringe start? What is with the crazy posters? Celebrate 60 years of the festival by taking a step back in time to discover its story. Wander through the city centre as you hear about its growth from kooky festival outsider to the juggernaut it is today, and relive your favourite Fringe memories.

Your guide Katina, owner of Flamboyance Tours, is an Adelaide born-and-raised local who has volunteered and worked for Adelaide Fringe and knows that growing up with the Fringe is something not to take for granted. If you're a Fringe lover, this great Adelaide journey is not to be missed!

This walking tour starts and finishes at different locations:
Start point: Government House gates, cnr North Terrace and King William St
Finish point: Garden of Unearthly Delights, East Terrace

Presented by:
Flamboyance Tours

Flamboyance Tours offers fun, quirky and immersive walking tours, and is Adelaide owned and operated. Here to inspire and educate, the company focuses on promoting the vibrant capital of South Australia as the emerging Australian force it is.

A flamboyance of flamingos represents togetherness, bringing curious minds in sync.
