The Easter Long Weekend is the Perfect Time to Relax

Highlights of What's On in Adelaide in April
If you're not too drained after the festivities of Mad March, you'll find plenty of fun things to do coming up in April. The Easter holiday long weekend is jam-packed with family activities in Adelaide, and we've got a special section dedicated just to them.

One of our favourite outdoor activities over Easter is the Adelaide International Kite Festival on Semaphore beach which is huge fun for kids. Meanwhile, over at Ayers House Museum, the Age of Elegance Exhibition has just launched, a stunning immersive fashion installation in one of Adelaide's most beautiful heritage homes. It's an exciting teaser to this year's Australian Heritage Festival which begins on April 18.

From an organ recital to the Hot Dub Time Machine, and Frankenstein at the theatre, arts lovers won't be short of fun things to do in April. Kids can be enthralled by tea with a princess at one of the amazing castles of Adelaide.

Other Exciting Things to See and Do in Adelaide
The Easter long weekend is the best time to get away for a short holiday in South Australia. Make a day trip to Victor Harbor and Granite Island, then have lunch at Port Elliott. Spend the weekend sightseeing special places on Yorke Peninsula. Take a short break on the Limestone Coast where there's so many things to see and do, or why not visit Melrose and Mount Remarkable to see the awesome natural beauty of our Flinders Ranges.

You might even be able to solve an old mystery in country SA. Even if you don't, you can see some iconic sights of fascinating South Australian history in the mid-North.

My pick of the bunch is the Impressionist Masterpieces Exhibition. It is very rare for Adelaide to get an exclusive like this.
