2021 Christmas Nordic Gnome Trail/ City of Adelaide

Community Event

29 Nov 2021 to 31 Dec 2021 Annual Event

There has been a population explosion of Nordic gnomes on Melbourne Street, North Adelaide!

These mischievous, bearded creatures have taken over the windows of shops, cafes and businesses along the street and invite you on a Christmas trail hunt of hide and seek.

Can you and your family find them all?

Pick up a trail guide from one of the many businesses along the street, look out for pavement sticker clues along the way, and start your Nordic gnome hunt!

The best place to start the trail is from Ollie Ashenden Children’s Wear at 168 Melbourne Street. From here the trail heads east, crosses to the other side of Melbourne Street at the pedestrian lights and then finishes at the Lion Hotel. Please take care along the way and only cross at the lights.

This COVID friendly event runs until 31 December 2021, can be done at any time and is not dependent on retail opening hours.
Have a happy roaming Gnome-ing Christmas!
