Free Bike Park
One of the easiest ways to get to WOMADelaide is by bike, and we encourage patrons attending the event to consider riding. The festival offers bike parks to accommodate more than 700 bikes, located adjacent to both the Hackney Road and Frome Road entrances. The best routes in to the festival include along the Torrens Linear Park and the cycle paths along Adelaide's major arterial roads. City cycling maps are available HERE with maps 6 and 9 showing access to Botanic Park. Please note that Plane Tree Drive will be closed to all traffic including cyclists for WOMADelaide.
Please ensure that you bring your own bike lock to secure your ride in the bike park. The bike park has a security presence but the token system that has operated in the past is no longer in use.
Parking is limited! There is no parking available on site and little in adjacent residential streets, so we recommend you carpool and park 'n' walk from the city (5-10 mins walk), or ride a bike, take the bus or share a cab/uber with friends.
