Highlights of What's On in Adelaide in May May is the month for South Australia's History Festival, with more than 600 events being held around South Australia. Fortunately you don't have to be a history buff, with special events for motor enthusiasts, food and wine lovers, and even a nocturnal walk in the parklands to see our wildlife. See our pick of the best events here.
You don't need a special reason to escape the city to the rolling hills south of Adelaide - there are some fantastic holiday destinations around Normanville and Second Valley. The Heritage Fleurieu Coast Festival is a carefully curated blend of history, art and culture, and runs throughout May. It's full of fun things to do for all ages, and the weather is perfect to visit Yankalilla now.

Repair cafes are a new idea in Adelaide, one of the free things to do in May. There's a choice of Adelaide Repair Cafe, with Unley Repair Cafe open for business the following weekend.
