The Adelaide zoo is a great day out. I am hanging to go see the pandas. Pack a picnic and spend the day saying hello to all the animals. Children under 4 are FREE. Check out their website HERE for more information.


The Greenhills adventure park is jam packed with activities to keep the kids busy all day. The kids can do, archery, mini golf, flying foxes, water slides and lots more! Children under 4 are FREE. Check out their website HERE for more details.


The National Railway Museum run steam train rides during the school holidays. Children under 3 are FREE. Check out their website HERE for more information.


Located in Clare Valley, the Mintaro Maze is a living hedge maze for the kids to explore. Pack a picnic and enjoy a day there. There are also giant sized games there to entertain the kids. Check out their website HERE for more details.


The centre has 3 levels of interactive exhibitions the kids will love. They also run a holiday program of activities for the kids. Children under 4 are FREE. Check out their website HERE for more information.

  • cant wait to travel over there


  • The maze sounds wonderful and unusual.


  • Rad times in Adelaide !!


  • Good times to be had it seems (-:


  • moving to Radelaide in May, cannot wait to get to know this city!


  • With regular visits to Adelaide for medical reasons we are always looking for new things to do. Sounds like we need to fit in Greenhills mm our next trip so we don’t miss out.


  • I would like to inform people that Greenhills Adventure Park definitely closes at the end of April, so if you are planning to take your children there don’t delay for too long..
    Another place you can take your children is the SA Museum. Outside under the shade of a Palm tree is a Blower – equipment on a very old truck that is used at Opal Mines to blow the loose dirt off the stones that are mined. There is also a noodling area in which they have tiny pieces of opal which you may/may not find. A warning, the kids will get dirty doing that. There is an opal display inside but you do have to pay an entry fee for that. At times there are experienced people who can give talks and explain the aspects of mining, the history of Coober Pedy a town in the Outback of SA from which most the equipment – including the blower outside – came from. The blower is fenced off for safety and security reasons.


  • Good comments – the pandas are always a worthwhile visit.


  • Adelaide zoo has a great new nature playground.


  • the art gallery and museum have some great activities too for the kids.


  • Adelaide zoo is fantastic! Very worthwhile seeing.


  • Thanx for sharing, i really love the Mintari maze and ride the train ideas


  • These are great things to do anytime you visit Adelaide.


  • Just came back from Adelaide and spent one of the days at the zoo. The Panda’s Wang Wang and Funi (hope I got that right ) are really cute . They suspect Funi is pregnant and keeping a close eye on her. She was playing and chewing on bamboo from the time we entered the zoo in the morning till the time we left the zoo in the afternoon !

    • oh wow! that would be really cool to see! :) how special was that!


  • I visited Adelaide 5 years ago. There was the Christmas Pageant at that time and I found it so incredibly nice.
    Of all the places I visited, I remember the Adelaide Gaol and the very interesting Ayers Historic House.
