The new year is upon us

2023 is upon us and I'm sure many would love to ring in the new year at either Glenelg, Brighton or Rymill Park in the city. Breathtaking fireworks will light up the night sky on Saturday the 31st of December. However, if you happen to be on the Yorke Peninsula, why not head to the ever-popular Copper Coast New Year's Eve Celebrations instead!

Adelaide continues to come alive in January with heaps of free things to do. Firstly, a quirkily cool diorama of Adelaide Botanic Garden will be on display at the State Herbarium for most of the month. This miniature model is the centrepiece of the garden's Tiny Summer program which also features other ticketed activities.

For those interested in cycling, you can catch all the Tour Down Under action at Victoria Square's Tour Village. There will be a bike expo, team zone and live panel chats in addition to the stages being live-streamed on the big screen. If you'd like to get to where the race is, then Jetty Road in Glenelg and Murray Street in Tanunda might just be the place for you on Saturday the 14th and Wednesday the 18th.

West Torrens's Summer Festival is finally back after a two-year hiatus. Round up the family for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Minions: Rise of Gru on the giant outdoor screen at West Torrens Memorial Gardens. And, don't forget to bring your dancing shoes to All Together Now and pack the children's bathers for a warm weather favourite at Mellor Park Reserve.

Australia Day celebrations include various breakfast and morning tea events. Join the Barossa Council for a community breakfast at Tanunda Show Hall or the City of Salisbury for a hot breakfast of bacon and egg rolls at Carisbrooke Park. The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters is hosting a morning tea on St Peters Street. Besides that, swimming fans won't want to miss watching the annual jetty-to-jetty swim from Grange Jetty to Henley Beach Jetty.

The opportunity for shopping abounds with more than sixty market stalls at the Glenelg Sunset Markets on Sunday the 15th. You'll also have a chance to learn more about the Walkerville Wesleyan Cemetery on a twilight tour, catch a glimpse of the Grand Princess cruise ship and go fly a kite with the family this January.
