There are so many family friendly adventures to be had in and around Adelaide, and across South Australia during the school holidays. Drop by Cleland Wildlife Park to see some of Australia’s native animals in their natural habitat. Elevate your holidays and experience the SkyWalk for uninterrupted views across the Adelaide Hills and the stunning shoreline. Explore Hahndorf, Australia’s longest surviving German settlement. Learn stories through Aboriginal rock art and engravings at Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park.

Staying Local?

That’s inviting too, especially when you can’t get away. Beat school holiday boredom at home with activities like cupcake decorating competitions, movie marathons, pillow fortress building, arts and craft, or DIY science experiments (if you’re game!). You could even build a little herb garden, or, let the kids loose in your wardrobe to put on a fashion parade! Blaring Madonna’s Vogue for the show is optional.

Get around one of the world food days at home celebrating something like International Waffle Day. Get creative!
