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

Spring is in the air
Top Free Things to do in Adelaide - September 2015
In the dying days of August there is still a short time left to get your fill of visual arts at a SALA Festival free event, and where better than in the Botanic Gardens? Alternatively the National Trust of SA is hosting Bad Girls: Into the Light at the iconic Z Ward of Glenside Hospital for two days only.
Spring is a beautiful time to escape the city even if you can't leave your technology behind. How about a free Facebook workshop in Coromandel Valley on September 4? This scenic walking trail is nearby and worth a look after your workshop. Or take a drive to the Fleurieu Peninsula and wander the Willunga Spring Fair over the weekend. There's bound to be some awesome local food and wine on offer too.
I will definitely be going to the Tennyson Dunes Open Day on the 13th to take one of a range of six guided walking tours with experts. Register to guarantee a tour place at this free event.
The Deep Creek Conservation Park's Free Family Fun Day on the 20th will be great fun for kids, and the Moon Lantern Festival (27/9) is one of my favourite Adelaide attractions with plenty of free family entertainment.
The Bay to Birdwood Classic car rally is another free event with loads of things to see and do. This year you get two chances to join in the fun, with the Bay to Birdwood Classic on Rundle Street (13/9) followed by the main Bay to Birdwood Classic event two weeks later.

Not Free, but Fun Things to Do
The Royal Show is Packed With Fun Things to Do in Adelaide
Probably the best loved of Adelaide attractions is The Royal Show from September 4-13. It's the best fun for kids period, but this spectacular family entertainment doesn't come cheap. Here's a few ideas on how to save money at the Adelaide Show so that you get the best bang for your buck.
Do your plans often come unstuck? Perhaps joining this Prophet School (5/9) might give you an extra edge? If not then pamper yourself at this Barossa Wellbeing Festival (12-13/9) although you may need to find your food and wine elsewhere.
While you're in the area take the Oakbank Heritage Walk too. It's just a pity that Pike's Brewery is no longer around to offer refreshments along the way, but Steve recommends sampling Johnston's Cordials from the cellar door.
