West End Access


The IAGS2024 Gala Dinner is being held in the Ian MacLachlan room, on Level 3 at the Adelaide Oval. Entrance for the dinner will be from the Southern Entrance (off Telstra Plaza).

All main entries to the stadium (South, East, North and West) are accessible for wheelchair users, semi-ambulant visitors and those accompanied by assistance dogs. Ramps and lifts are used extensively around and within Adelaide Oval to provide safe access for wheelchair or mobility impaired visitors. Ramps are located near all stairs and lifts are located near all escalators.

It is recommended that users of wheelchairs, powered wheelchairs and scooters at Adelaide Oval are insured for third party damage to people and property.

Assistance animals are welcome at Adelaide Oval (identifiable with an official identification pass, medallion, coat or other recognised form of identification).

Unisex accessible toilets are located near all male and female toilets. They are signed with raised tactile/Braille signs that also tell which way you can transfer onto the pan. RH means that you can transfer to the right and LH means to the left, so there will be a toilet to suit your requirements.

There are also cubicles within male or female toilets that have extra space with the door opening outwards if you use a walking frame or another mobility aid.

Male urinals also have these short support rails at each end to support you and your mobility aid.

A number of options are available for accessible parking at the Adelaide Oval – please contact Adelaide Oval Reception on 08 8211 1100 for more information.

Alternatively, disabled drop-off zones have been established on War Memorial Drive and King William Road.
