The Garden of Unearthly Delights

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

The Garden of Unearthly Delights remains unrivalled as Australia’s most vibrant and dynamic outdoor festival precinct. Shining brightly from within the Adelaide Fringe, the southern hemisphere’s largest open access arts festival is opening again for a bigger, better 2018 season! Selling over 170,000 tickets in 2017, the Garden has undoubtedly created one of Australia’s most engaging festival atmospheres.

Racking up its 16th season in 2018, The Garden will run from 15 February to 18 March and we would love you to be a part of it! However, due to the large volume of applications received we may not be able to contact everyone who applies.



The Garden is seeking experienced and enthusiastic staff who are interested in joining our dedicated team. As each department opens expressions of interest, they will appear below.

If you think you’d enjoy the unique atmosphere of The Garden, please complete your application ASAP! Please note that you may apply for more than one department. We require all our staff to be prepared to work flexible hours, have an Australian bank account, Tax File Number and have the necessary visa arrangements to work in Australia.

We will also be advertising any management roles on this page, so please keep checking back for further information.
