About this Event:


Discover the Art of Christmas along the Adelaide Riverbank; the creative tree trail that winds along the banks of the River Torrens and onto the cultural boulevard North Terrace.

Based on famous trails such as the Berlin bears, the Easter egg hunt in New York and Gromit Unleashed in Bristol, The Art of Christmas will transform the Adelaide Riverbank into a Christmas wonderland.

Twelve fabulous South Australian artists have used their creative talents and a sprinkle of Christmas magic to bring the trees to life.

Each tree unique just like the artists themselves, will form the trail for you to follow.

During the day the stunning trees sit beautifully along the Adelaide Riverbank, then after dark the trees come alive and light up the night. 

Get started by downloading the map which has short, medium and long trails to choose from. Take part in the twists and turns along the way including kids’ activities, a letter jumble competition and more.

Explore the Adelaide Riverbank over the festive season and see the trail for yourself.
