Another month, another milestone in Adelaide. In May we saw the launch of Australia's new air warfare destroyer Hobart at Osborne. There's no word yet if it will be sent to Canberra to enforce their election promises of local submarine building contracts.

A previous US built incarnation of HMAS Hobart last visited Port Adelaide in 2000 after a tour of duty in the Vietnam War. It was later scuttled as a dive wreck in Yankalilla Bay, and is now known as the Fleurieu Artificial Reef.

History has been on the event menu a lot recently, with a smorgasbord of tasty treats for the History Festival finishing in May. But history fans have other morsels on offer this month. It's not yet too cold to take a Dark History tour about Adelaide, and discover its secrets. It will cost a few dollars, but is money well spent.

At the end of the month the centenary of Violet Day will be celebrated by a stunning free sound and light show in Adelaide. With local projection light specialists Illuminart presenting the show it will be magic.

While June is traditionally one of our wetter months, it's looking very dry for free things to do in Adelaide this month. But our writers have been busy finding Adelaide attractions to entertain you - read on for more.

While there are plenty of fun things to do this month, if you're looking for free events you'll be struggling. The Refugee Week poster exhibition is definitely worth a look though, and continues until the end of June.

The City of Adelaide is keen to get your views about how the Adelaide parklands can be improved. This makes a pleasant contrast to the state government who would prefer to redevelop our parklands, building office towers and highways over them. There are some brilliant suggestions up already - why not have your say before June 26?

There will be free family entertainment south of Adelaide at Middleton, as whale watching returns for winter. While you're down there visit the Granite Island attractions as it's always fun for kids. There's an excellent reason to visit the Island now - food truck Castaways the Baker and the Chef is offering great food now that the island cafe has closed.

Beaches aren't just for summer, although you won't ever catch me swimming in winter. A new writer has just written a splendid pictorial guide to the beaches south of Adelaide, take a look and be awed by the beauty.

Not Free, but Fun Things to Do

There are many fun things to do outdoors this month - or you can treat yourself to a night at the movies on the long weekend and help the Environmental Defenders Office protect our environment.

Also on the June long weekend is the Strathalbyn Balloon Regatta with its colourful family entertainment spectacle. Or take a McLaren Vale wine tour with the Maid and Magpie

Closer to home, dog lovers can join Hayley's dog walk for a good cause, or get some retail therapy at a book sale.

Cheech and Chong's many fans will be champing to check them out again at Thebarton Theatre. If your tastes are more refined may we suggest Six Swans the Opera?

Looking for something different to do? Cruise the Coorong and see things that few other people in Adelaide do. It should be an essential part of any visit to the Limestone Coast.

Meet Your Match in the Mid North of SA


The mid north of South Australia gets excessively hot in summer, and the cooler months are the best time to visit. Writer Steve Hudson recently followed Goyders Footsteps on the Dare Hill Circuit, discovering abandoned houses, ruins of buildings, and native wildlife. Check out the imagery in his article!

There are many other exciting things to see and do in places near the Flinders Ranges. Whether you're travelling as a family or on your own, attractions like the Steamtown Heritage Rail Centre will change your views on country SA.

I often hear four wheel drive enthusiasts complain about the lack of places to drive off road. If that's you check out Jakem Farm, it may be just what you're looking for.

Finally if you'd rather stay in bed on a chilly winter day, then read some cool stories about morgues and mortuaries in SA. At least you're not lying on a slab.
