We've had an exceptionally mild summer so far in Adelaide, and many parents have made the most of it as school holidays come to a close. Our beaches have been booming, especially those south of Adelaide which have been packed with people looking for family entertainment and fun for kids.
The Encounter Marine Park was chosen by Nature Play SA as their theme play location during January. With beautiful beaches south of Adelaide stretching from Port Noarlunga to the tourist haven of Victor Harbor, Nature Play SA suggested some fantastic school holiday activities for kids.
During February Nature Play SA has chosen Granite Island and its attractions as their Park of the Month. Stay tuned for some awesome suggestions how you and your kids can find new ways to enjoy this popular seaside resort.
If you can't escape to the beach, you may well be waiting for the feverish February frenzy that is the Fringe Festival. Kicking off on February 13, the Adelaide Fringe continues until March 15 at locations all about South Australia.
We have some show suggestions that are fun for kids later on, meantime have a browse at the fabulous range of free things to do in Adelaide's Fringe. Free concerts, free festivals, free markets, and free performances - we have it all covered!
What's On in Adelaide - Free Events
The Tour Down Under Kicks Off at King William Road in Unley
Lots of people brought out their bikes to celebrate the Tour Down Under. Love to Ride Adelaide is a free event that promotes cycling to work, and you have until February 23 to get at least 10 minutes of bike exercise and take part.
If you missed the Fork on the Road held with the final stage of the Tour Down Under then don't be too fussed - there's another foodie feast coming up on February 27.
Both Gluttony & The Garden of Unearthly Delights Attract Large Crowds
Goolway launches the South Australian Wooden Boat Festival again this year. There's a small entrance charge but kids under 15 get in for free, and there's plenty of family entertainment and great food.
If you're looking for a new furbaby, I usually recommend Hahndorf Shelter. The volunteers there are awesome, and I now have two beautiful animals from there. But Animal Welface League are offering a special deal until February 8 - check it out if you're looking for a dog.
