Take Heritage Festival Walking Tours in the City of Adelaide


The National Trust Heritage Festival is back again, and this year there are many exciting things to do at events in Adelaide and the country. Held from April 16 until May 29, the national Heritage Festival also overlaps with South Australia's History Festival from History SA. As places on many events are limited, you should book early to avoid disappointment.

Z Ward Asylum
The Heritage Festival in Adelaide kicks off on April 16 with a Day Tour at Z Ward - unfortunately places for these tours have already been booked out until June. Luckily Night Tours are still available at Z Ward asylum.

National Trust Treasury Tunnels & Cabinet Room Heritage Tours


Old Adelaide Treasury Tunnels Tours
These popular guided tours of the Treasury Tunnels and old Cabinet Room are back in the National Trust Heritage Festival program again (April 24, May 8 and 29). Details and bookings.

Celebrate Royal Oak Day at Stangate House
Stangate House gardens are renown for their beauty and the displays of camellias. But the giant oak tree at Stangate House is the current joint National Champion in Australia, a good reason to celebrate Royal Oak Day at Stangate House on May 1.

Mothers' Day at Beaumont House


Mother's Day at Beaumont House
Why not pamper your mum with a special treat on Mothers' Day - afternoon tea at historic Beaumont House? Relax in the landscaped gardens that are tended daily by volunteers while you sip on a glass of champagne. Lavish your scones with jam and cream as you forget your diet for this special day. Sunday May 8 from 2-5pm, information and bookings here.

Gawler Old Telegraph Station Museum Cemetery Tour
We do love guided cemetery tours in Adelaide, and I wonder whether the Gawler heritage tours will be even more spooky? You will have to take the tour to tell. (May 11 and 18).

Walking Trails Through Mount Geourge Conservation Park in the Adelaide Hills


Hahndorf Pioneer Women's Trail Walk
Did you know that early settlers from Europe once walked from Hahndorf to Adelaide to sell their produce at market? The route passes through scenic Mount George Conservation Park and the towns of Bridgewater, Stirling and Crafers in the Adelaide Hills. On Sunday May 15 take the walk that these hardy women did every week, or take a short form of the walk. There's even a bus to take you back if you need it, after you enjoy food and drinks at Beaumont House. Information and bookings here.
