With the new Royal Adelaide Hospital now fully operational, the government is keen to breathe new life into the derelict old RAH. While Dark History Tours of the old hospital are selling faster than hot cakes, demolition work has already begun on parts of the hospital campus.

The vision is for the former Royal Adelaide Hospital site to be transformed into a creative and innovative neighbourhood. Government hopes to create high value jobs and industries to secure employment for many South Australians, positioning Adelaide as the start-up capital of Australia.

A Master Plan has been developed which will deliver:
Integration with the Adelaide Botanic Garden, the East End, universities and Adelaide Botanic High School
Significant adaptive reuse of heritage buildings, and new commercial buildings to complement the economic uses
Opportunities to develop accommodation for co-living or short-stay temporary accommodation
Vibrant spaces for the public to enjoy

It's hoped that the former Royal Adelaide Hospital site will foster the world's fastest-growing industries such as artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, smart sensor networks, robotics, big data, defence and space technologies, and media and creative industries. However, to date, there has been little chance for the public to see what is happening there.

On Wednesday July 11 Renewal SA has is holding a free Open Day at the former Royal Adelaide Hospital. Come for a free behind-the-scenes tour to the Observation Deck, and discover the progress as you learn the history of the hospital. You will also see the future of Australia's first creative innovation neighbourhood as it unfolds.

Watch the demolition in real time using a virtual window, and see the buildings on the east side of the old hospital come down. Hear first hand from an archaeologist as he explains what has been found below the surface.

The free Open Day at the Former Royal Adelaide Hospital will offer a range of activities to show you the type of experiences you can expect when visiting the site in the future: augmented reality, robotics, virtual reality, 3D printing, immersive art and more. Find out all the details on the Facebook page.

You need to book early to take a free tour to the Observation Deck as all tours are filling rapidly. While you wait, take advantage of the pop-up bars and local food trucks at the hospital, supported by new onsite tenants The Sparkke Change Beverage Company and Kik Coffee. Don't miss the free tastings from Chesterfield Whisky Firm - there's plenty of food choices to quench your thirst and satisfy your hunger on your visit to the Open Day.

I hope they will remove it without damaging it and put up on the new hospital.
