The St Kilda beach area north of Adelaide has a steadily growing range of attractions. The St Kilda Tramway Museum with its magnificent collection of restored trams to see and ride. St Kilda adventure playground is packed with fun things to do for all ages, and a $3.5m refurbishment program is bringing even more activities for kids. And nearby the St Kilda Mangrove Trail and interpretive centre offers a more tranquil educational experience after a day of play.
If all that isn't enough, the Adelaide Flyaway Festival on Saturday October 17 will bring even more free things to do for St Kilda visitors. The festival celebrates the arrival of migratory shorebirds which come from as far away as Siberia and Alaska just to visit sunny South Australia. It's a part of National Bird Week, and we're being lured to learn all about it with a range of free family entertainment.
