the problem is not with Adelaide.

Book early or miss out
Take a Guided Tour of Parliament House Adelaide for South Australia's History Festival
You can find the printed program in libraries and council chambers, or just download the program or an app from the History Festival website. You can also follow South Australia's History Festival on Facebook here.
Do remember that popular events book out very quickly, so if reservations are required then book early. When the Elms and Glenside Hospital walking tour was advertised on the Protect Glenside Hospital Facebook page, hundreds of tickets were completely sold out within ten minutes.
Open Day at Old Adelaide Gaol for South Australia's History Festival
South Australia's History Festival events are held in country towns all about South Australia, but one of the most unusual events will take place in Terowie. The Institute of Backyard Studies is revealing the Lost Stories of Henry Hoke, after an investigative reporter from the ABC spilled the beans aboutThe Lost Tools of Henry Hoke in a TV series.

Come to the Terowie Institute to feast your eyes on some of the great inventions of this Australian legend. It's not known whether the Great Man will attend, but those who knew of him are encouraged to share their recollections of the world of Hoke's Bluff. Bookings essential.
While you're in Terowie, pop over to Quorn to re-live the excitement of steam engine travel from the golden years of the South Australian Railways. There will be plenty of fun things to do for kids too, thanks to the Pichi Richi Railway.
Down in Mount Gambier, Then and Now is a unique photography display that uses digital techniques to contrast old and current images of Mount Gambier. It's amazing when you see images of the same place separated by a century.
