With over 30 bus, train and tram stops within walking distance of the Adelaide Showground, including a dedicated bus interchange and railway station, there are plenty of Adelaide Metro services available for your Show travel needs. Make the smart move and hop on a bus, train or tram.
Take advantage of the Adelaide Showground railway station located adjacent to the Showground north western entrance. Catch a Seaford or Belair train, operating every day of the Show. In addition, Royal Show train shuttles will operate between Adelaide and Adelaide Showground stations during off-peak times to ensure a high frequency service.
The 21W Show shuttle bus operates all day, every day of the Show between the city and the Goodwood Road bus interchange at the Showground.
Special O-Bahn Show express buses operate every day of the Show from Tea Tree Plaza Interchange via the O-Bahn, picking up at Paradise and Klemzig then direct to the Showground. Three trips each morning depart from Golden Grove Village, or you can catch any regular O-Bahn service to the city and connect to the 21W Show shuttle bus.
Many buses that usually operate to limited stops or express past the Showground will service stops around the Showground during the Royal Show.
Taxis and Uber pick up zones are located in Rose Terrace and Leader Street.
There are plenty of trams running; just hop off at stop 3 Goodwood Road for access to the Showground.
