It's all happening on the wharf next to the lighthouse. There'll be street performers, face painting, art activities, a bungee trampoline, a good old fashioned Punch and Judy show and heaps more.

If you've never been inside the landmark lighthouse before, this day will be a great opportunity to do it - there'll be free entry.

Browse the Fisherman's Wharf Markets, grab a bargain and something tasty to eat, get yourself a seat and watch the Port Adelaide Rowing Club Sprint Regatta.

When in the Port, pop into the Maritime Museum - it's a fantastic place to see, touch and experience our state's sea-faring history. If you're into things that move a bit faster, there's the National Railway Museum and the Aviation Museum. Both are brilliant places to visit with the whole family. It's never boring at the Port - there's so much there to see!
