Adelaide Alfresco: The Dunstan Effect reveals how alfresco dining was encouraged by Don Dunstan. (Katina Vangopoulos)

Adelaide Alfresco: The Dunstan Effect

Former SA premier Don Dunstan’s love for cuisine ran much deeper than his desire to publish a cookbook. Adelaide’s culinary scene wouldn’t be what it is today without his flamboyant vision of adapting a Mediterranean-inspired lifestyle. Join us on this walking tour as we unravel stories of the city’s first alfresco spaces, revealing Dunstan’s inspirations, challenges, and how his policies changed the way Adelaideans socialise forever. An exclusive to the History Festival that’s not to be missed. Bookings essential.
