In 2013, the Semaphore Carousel will celebrate its 75th Birthday and you are invited to the party!
The historic Semaphore Carousel is the largest operating carousel in Australia with 40 hand crafted wooden horses. Most other rides similar to our Semaphore Carousel have only 36 horses.
It's a South Aussie icon - as loved as frog cakes, Farmers Union Iced Coffee and Adelaide Oval. It's been a part of our beach-going experience since 1938 and, goodness, hasn't she aged well?. It's a magical place, the holder of memories for many generations of South Australians.
On the 10th November 2013 (the day after Pageant Day), the Carousel will open for a very special day of celebration.
There will be $2 carousel rides, $2 soft drinks, balloon tying, magic shows, prizes and much much more
Save the date and get along from 10am to 3pm.
The carousel is housed in an undercover enclosure to protect it from the elements and is a unique venue to hire for private parties and functions. The building's hexagon structure can accommodate up to 100 persons comfortably for a sit down meal. Weddings, anniversaries, corporate functions or just a family & friends get-together are just a few of the events that can be booked at the carousel. The carousel is open on weekends, public holidays and during school holidays from around 11.30am until 3.30pm. During the summer school holidays it stays open until mid-evening. (the Carousel is closed on Christmas Day and during days of bad weather and extreme heat).
To book the Carousel for private parties and special occasions, contact Pete and Dea on 0430-878257 or like their Facebook

Getting to Semaphore:
Semaphore is only 15 minutes from Adelaide Airport, or a short 17kms drive from the centre of Adelaide, via Port Road. Bus and train services run regularly from the city and suburban centres.
There is plenty of free parking on the streets nearby. Good clean toilets are close by. There's an undercover shelter at the entrance to the Carousel - why not bring a picnic lunch and enjoy a whole day out at Semaphore.
