School Holiday Activities Around Adelaide

With school holidays fast approaching, you may be wondering how you’re going to keep your children entertained! Whether you’re a local or visiting Adelaide for the school holidays, there’s plenty on offer to keep the kids busy and you relaxed and happy.

Here are some of the activities around Adelaide your children may choose to partake in:

Get Sporty

Adelaide is one sporty city, and there’s plenty of activity to get involved in over the holidays. From sports camps to circus skills, you’re bound to find something that will keep your children away from the screens and exercise these holidays.


See the Animals

The Adelaide Zoo is a great day out for kids of all ages.  With bird shows, animal feedings, a great playground and so much more, you’ll be happy to spend the day there. For something a little more hands on, you can’t go past Handorf Farm Barn which offers tractor rides, cow milking and being able to get up close to farm animals. Afterwards, it’s just a short drive into Handorf for some lunch or exploring.


Let’s Get Cooking

If you’re looking for something more indoors and where your children can learn some life skills, you might like to send them along to some fun cooking classes.

Some restaurants hold sessions for kids during the holidays or try Scoffed School of Food and Fun for some cooking master class lessons specifically designed for the kids. Not only will they keep busy, you might end up with dinner cooked for the family too!


Learn for Life

If you’ve got some budding scientists in your house, or just some curious observers, there are plenty of places you can visit for an educational school holidays field trip. You might like to investigate:

  • Adelaide Planetarium
  • Migration Museum
  • South Australia Maritime Museum
  • National Motor Museum


Live Shows
