Spring School Holiday Family Activities

Adelaide, which has been voted amongst the world’s best cities, boasts a wealth of attractions for adults and children alike and spring is a particularly exciting time to visit.

Throughout spring, we welcome families to the city to explore the many activities on the hotel’s door step, such as the River Torrens and the Adelaide Zoo.  Just a few minutes walk away, the River Torrens is a popular and picturesque spot for lazing in the sun or picnics as well as for walking or jogging.  Families can get their feet moving on a paddle boat taking in the sights of the Oval and the spray of the water fountains, or enjoy a boat ride directly to the Adelaide Zoo.

Start the day by climbing aboard Popeye for a scenic boat trip to Adelaide Zoo where you can experience the Children’s Zoo, or for some fun for all the family hire a paddle boat.  If you are feeling creative the Art Gallery of South Australia has a range of family-friendly activities, including The Painting Experience workshop, where young artists can experience an artist’s endeavour to capture the essence of life in the still life painting workshop. Art facilitators will introduce them to painting techniques to enable them to produce a still life canvas for their collection.

START at the Gallery provides an introduction to visual art for children and families. Held on the first Sunday of every month at the Art Gallery of South Australia, START is free and includes art activities, tours, live performance and entertainment. START is recommended for children aged 3-12 years and parent / carer supervision is required. No bookings are necessary.
