I enjoy writing about Adelaide and its many attractions. If you think Adelaide is boring, the problem is not with Adelaide. adelaideunearthed.blogspot.com.au/

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.

nature play fun for kids include hunting for the critters that live in the mud that the birds feed on

With all those free things to do you'll develop an appetite quickly, and there will be a huge choice of food available from Wild at Hart market stalls. Think Red Lime Shack, Conscious Lifestyles, Barossa Valley Ice Cream, Haddo's Hotdogs, Gourmet Chocolate Brownies, Republic of Bacon BBQ, and Pure Fruit Smoothies to name just some of the food stalls that will tempt your tastebuds on the day.
