Art can be exciting in August
Adelaide Artist Matt Stuckey Leads a SALA Festival Walking Tour
Highlights of What's On in Adelaide in August August is the month when art blossoms in Adelaide as the Sala Festival teases us out of our homes and our comfort zones. For people who find static displays in art galleries a little artificial, there are plenty of other ways to enjoy art around South Australia during the festival.
Why not take a special walking tour with your baby or toddler, follow Tilly the hound on a dog-friendly tour, or board one of the modestly priced regional art bus tours? Bring your friends from overseas along as many tours have interpreters too. Check the online program for details.
Carrick Hill brings us another way to enjoy Australian art - a new May Gibbs garden has been added to the free Children's Storybook Trail. It's great fun for kids to enjoy iconic Australian characters like Snugglepot and Cuddlepie in the garden, then take a look at the May Gibbs exhibition in the house.
Watching Demolition in Progress at the Old Royal Adelaide Hospital
Many people were disappointed they couldn't make it to the free Open Day at the former Royal Adelaide Hospital, but you can still catch up with what's happening at the old RAH.
Meanwhile, at the Adelaide Showgrounds Science Alive is back on August 4-5, and the good news is that kids get in free of charge. Don't miss the Science Centre Open Day the following week at the South Australian Museum, although it is more suited to adults than children.
Other Exciting Things to See and Do in Adelaide
Our story on Watiparinga Reserve has proved to be a huge winner. Despite the cold weather, there have been plenty of visitors to the park, and also at the Marshmallow Playground and Pelzer Park activity hub in the Adelaide parklands. North of the city our writers recommend exploring the Smith Creek Trail at Smithfield.
Would you describe yourself as observant? I wonder how many of these curious Domes in Adelaide you have seen on your travels. We've already found one that we missed, at the Adelaide Observatory.
