Adelaide is something of a wonderland for kids and families. It has one-of-a-kind family-friendly attractions and colourful year-round events.
Once upon a time, the words ‘hip’ and ‘Adelaide’ would never have been used in the same sentence. Yet, today the South Australian capital is a vibrant hub filled with culture, natural beauty and adventure to wow all ages.
Known as the City of Churches, the South Australian capital oozes European charm with interesting architecture, wide boulevards and pretty parks, including the lush Adelaide Botanic Gardens and Adelaide Park Lands, a sprawling expanse of gardens, ovals, green spaces, and sporting and play areas.
Eat up a storm at the impressive Adelaide Central Market and take the 20-minute drive to the Adelaide Hills where more than 60 wineries await. Grab your towels and sunscreen for a trip to one of the city’s fantastic beaches, including popular Glenelg, where you can take a dip, swim with dolphins and more. If you prefer your animal encounters on the drier side, a visit to Adelaide Zoo or a safari at open-range Monarto Zoo, about 50 minutes from the city, might be more your family’s speed.
There are so many cool things to do in Adelaide, your entire family will be spoilt for choice.
