Climb the rock wall or ride the mini train
Australia Day is a time of celebration. We celebrate our beautiful country, our multiculturalism and the contribution that every person makes to our lifestyle, democracy and freedom.
The City of Onkaparinga will celebrate Australia Day with an Australia Day Bush Fair, showcasing Australia's bush heritage. Located at the South Adelaide Football Club Oval, 1 Lovelock Drive, Noarlunga Downs the Bush Fair will commence at 5.30 pm on 26 January 2018 and go through to 9.30 pm, ending with a spectacular fireworks display synchronised to music.
For a gold coin entry fee, you will be able to enjoy live music, marvel at the skill of the wood chopping, ride a pony, climb a rock face, get your face painted and play some games. When you have done all that and still want more, why not pet the native animals, take a mini train ride and wander through the stalls to see if you can find something truly Australian to buy.
