A brand new vibrant and dynamic outdoor festival precinct for Melbourne in winter.  

Take one triangle of inner city seaside land, fill it with savvy small bars, luscious food stalls, an antique Spiegeltent full of stunning shows, carnival rides, quirky sideshows, a Central Park style ice rink, sparkling lights and roaring fires and you have with warmth and wonder of MAP 57 – St Kilda’s Winter Garden. 

Presented by The Gardeners of Unearthly Delights, MAP 57 is THE winter destination for Melbourne’s inner South.


Each year for the last 15 years, The Gardeners of Unearthly Delights, a partnership between Strut & Fret Production House and Buxton Walker, create a unique festival playground for Adelaide Fringe, The Garden of Unearthly Delights

The Garden of Unearthly Delights began with just one Spiegeltent in 2000. Over the past fourteen years it has evolved into the greatest arts event in town and the heart of Adelaide’s summer arts festival season.

In 2017 for the first time, The Gardeners opened a new Garden in their home town of Melbourne. 

MAP 57 respectfully acknowledges the Yalukit Willam Clan of the Boon Wurrung. We pay our respects to their Elders, both past and present. We acknowledge and uphold their continuing relationship to this land.
