What to do in Adelaide these spring school holidays

There’s a luxury holiday waiting for you with InterContinental Adelaide in the heart of a vibrant city during the spring school holidays – with the riverbank precinct, parks, and the cultural North Terrace all within walking distance.

Plan a couple of days in Adelaide during the school holidays, with our daily activity suggestions below.

Day 1 – Adelaide Riverbank Precinct

Your first stop these school holidays, should be within the Adelaide Riverbank Precinct, with many events on for the whole family!

Stroll down the riverbank to Elder Park and jump on the famous Adelaide Popeye and make your journey along the River Torrens towards the Adelaide Zoo. Their Zoomagination school holiday experience, encourages children to play outdoors and get messy as a great way to learn new skills. Their themed animal presentations explain how their animal residents use nature in the wild to learn and play.

Day 2 – Cultural North Terrace

For the next day on your luxury school holiday experience, take the whole family on a trip down the cultural hub that is North Terrace, where you will find plenty of activities to keep the whole family entertained and also educated.

One option is the South Australian Museum. During the holiday period the focus is minerals, where children can play with all things rocks, gems and meteorites!

Alternatively visit the Art Gallery of South Australia, where in conjunction with the red string that has overtaken the gallery for the Chiharu Shiota exhibition, you will have the option to learn to tie, knot, weave and thread to make your own creation in their art workshops these school holidays.

Another experience along the cultural district is at the Migration Museum, where in celebration of the Italian Festival of South Australia, where flags were created and then flown in the parade. During the school holidays during 10am and 5pm attendees will have the option to make their own flags.

Day 3 – Parklands

Spring is the perfect weather to get out and about and explore the wonderful parklands that Adelaide has to offer. The perfect outdoor activity to venture on during the holidays is the Bunyip Trail in Bonython Park. The trail is based on the popular book ‘The Bunyip of Berkleys Creek‘ and challenges kids to complete a series of environmental activities relating to the story at different points along the 200m trail. The late afternoon can bring with it a lot of insects though so be sure to bring repellant.

Hotel Experiences

At the end of the day, relax in the hotel, where children can dine out on the Planet Trekkers menu with classic favourites through to sophisticated combinations that will excite the junior palate.

Make sure you download the Planet Trekkers Mobile app – a children’s travel journal and game, created by InterContinental® Hotels & Resorts in partnership with National Geographic Kids. You can download the app directly from the Apple Store or by visiting the app section on the InterContinental.com homepage.
