In 2020 UKARIA is trialling a bus service from the Adelaide CBD to the Cultural Centre for all concerts on Sunday Afternoons, and for our dusk series The Magic Hour. Please read through the following information carefully, and contact us on (08) 8227 1277 or at [email protected] if you have any questions.


Bus fares are available for $25 per person

Departure Point

The bus will collect patrons from the corner of South Terrace and Hutt Street, and return to this location after the concert. If you have Google Maps on your smartphone, tablet or computer, typing in 'southhut corner' will show you the exact departure point. The size of the bus will vary depending on the number of bookings. If there are less than five, the bus will be replaced by a car. The driver will display an A frame sign next to his vehicle, so look out for the red UKARIA logo.


There is ample and unrestricted parking along South Terrace on both Saturdays and Sundays.

Departure Times

Sunday Afternoons

Our Sunday Afternoon concerts commence at 2.30pm. The bus will arrive at the corner of South Terrace and Hutt Street at 1.00pm and depart at 1.15pm. Upon returning to the CBD after the event, the bus will return to the pick up point, or drop patrons at the nearest taxi rank.

The Magic Hour

For all concerts in The Magic Hour, the bus will depart from the corner of South Terrace and Hutt Street 90 minutes prior to the start of the performance. As the start time for each concert in this series varies in order to coincide with the sunset, we've provided a list of departure times below:
