I enjoy writing about Adelaide and its many attractions. If you think Adelaide is boring,
the problem is not with Adelaide.

For families with children, the Adelaide Fringe has a new hub at The Depot. This industrial chic area walled in by shipping containers is holding a free Family Day at The Depot every Sunday during the Festival. Check out the website for the latest updates.
While the weather is hot, many people prefer to hang out at the Bay where you can shop, swim and sun yourself. You will also find some free Fringe activities here.
Some of us feel that the Fringe is a great excuse to party, and The Garden of Unearthly Delights is just the spot for that. Play spot the celebrity, enjoy the parklands for the first time in your life, or just find a nice quiet corner for a cuddle.
After a couple of drinks, why not use the free Fringe Bus to take you to your next venue as it meanders about Adelaide? You can check the route and times online too, and it beats catching a cab.
Dulcie the Boutique Bus will not be taking you anywhere, but if you do need some accessories, or spill Moet down your outfit then you can pick up another one there at a very good price. They might even take it back the next day for a discount.
Australia's greatest pop poet and New Zealand's most celebrated songwriter and performer will be together on stage, kicking off the Adelaide Festival with a huge free concert as the sun sets in one of Adelaide's favourite places.
Take the kids and enjoy a brilliant evening of free entertainment.
Foodlovers will want to join a panel comprising wine writer Max Allen, cook and food writer Fuchsia Dunlop and cultural critic Steven Poole for a conversation about why in an age when no one cooks, all we ever talk about is dinner. Find out all about it here
Take part in the ultimate quest for silence and peace at Steropublic, and go Crowdsourcing the Quiet. Now if only they would expand it to include Marion Shopping Centre!

And finally, if the fecund free events have exhausted you mentally, you may choose to chill out at the Barrio where the Bunga Bunga party is just part of the fun. It's not free, but it won't be boring either.
If your brain feels it's about to explode from taking in all the culture from the Fringe and the Festival, then why not just party?
During the Adelaide Fringe there will be excitement as Waymouth Street Parties, and you won't be forced to rub shoulders with any famous writers or Nobel literature laureates. The only painting you will be exposed to is a little street art, which never hurt anybody.
If you really want to escape it all, swing by the markets at Brighton and bag a bargain there. The art on display will probably never make it to either Festival, but it's all good fun and it's dog friendly to boot.
Built to protect Adelaide from invasion, Fort Largs has been inaccessible to the public for over 130 years (and still is). It is just possible that the government may allow public access once land around it is sold for housing, but who knows - the developers may "accidentally" demolish it for a car park.
If Facebook Likes are any guide, then Little Miss Mexico is definitely worth a visit very soon. In the space of two weeks they rocketed up to over 5,000 Likes but they plan to close at the end of the Fringe.
I'm talking about 50 in The City, a trio of talented teens who will be playing at The Depot on March 1. Partnered with Es Ist Super, Heston Drop & Squeaker for the concert, if you get your tickets online and in advance you will save around 50%.
There are some top class comedy acts at the Fringe this year, but luckily our writer James Newcombe has written a helpful guide - check it out here.
Hyperventilating at the number of free and cheap things to do in March. Would surely feel the quietness when the festivities subside come April. Like your vibrant shots and fantastic pic of Waymouth Street.
