Supported by the pillars of sustainability, local produce and social responsibility, the team at Aurora aim to create memorable dining experiences that nourish and engage. A la carte and tasting menus offer inclusive, authentic experiences that celebrate culinary excellence.

Led by Brendan Wessels and Sam Cooper, Aurora is a world class yet accessible dining experience in the heart of Adelaide. A purpose-built braai is at the centre of the open kitchen which produces modern cuisine at international standards. Working with local suppliers that align with Aurora’s ethos of quality produce, locality and supportive work practices is key to our vision.

At Aurora, we aim to take you on a journey. Ever-changing and evolving, our menu is a fusion of diverse cuisines, crafted by our talented team whose expertise is shaped by their rich heritage and diverse experiences. 

Aurora is part of ILA, Adelaide's Centre of Immersive Light and Art. ILA is an independent creative project, not-for-profit organisation and registered charity that creates opportunities for artists through your support of our hospitality and events. All profits generated through your dining are reinvested back to support ILA's mission. The ethos of ILA’s social enterprise stretches into Aurora and all its many facets at Light Square. Discover them all.

Aurora acknowledges that we are meeting, creating and working on the traditional land of the Kaurna People. We recognise and respect their cultural heritage beliefs and relationship with the land. We pay our respects to the Elders past, present and future.
