Adelaide Dining Magazine will be read by thousands of interstate and international visitors over the coming months (and beyond), as CBD hotel occupancy rates look to soar.

Hotel bookings have gone bananas as festival tickets sell fast and drive occupancy rates in Adelaide to record-breaking highs.

The CBD is celebrating the best 10-week outlook for any event on record, with 77 per cent of Adelaide hotel rooms already sold for the Saturday of the inaugural AFL Gather Round – smashing the previous record of 57 per cent sold at 10 weeks out from New Year’s Eve 2022.

An influx of visitors to South Australia are also expected for the March long weekend, as WOMADelaide celebrates unprecedented ticket sales, with all 3-day, 4-day and Saturday tickets sold-out more than one month out from the event.

The demand for tickets has translated to hotel bookings, with average occupancy over the festival already at 79 per cent –– up 27 per cent on the same time last year, one month out from the March long weekend.

At 11 weeks out from the nation’s first LIV Golf tournament, forward bookings show 53 per cent of hotel rooms are already booked for the Saturday of the event – compared to just 20 per cent for the same time last year.

It’s great news for clients and fans of Adelaide Dining Magazine, with our 2023 edition currently in circulation across over 80% of the city’s hotels, and thousands distributed throughout regional accomodation premises and tourist centres.

Great news too for restaurants, venues and the hospitality industry, as the influx of visitors look to explore all of what SA has to offer.
