Why isn't there ice skating in summer?
Fun for Kids Ice Skating at the Winterfest Festival in Port Adelaide
Highlights of What's On in Adelaide in July The July school holidays can be a challenge for parents, finding fun things to do for their children. People in the Port Adelaide area are well set up this year with plenty of fun for kids at the Winterfest Festival at Hart's Mill, although not many are free during the extended festival this year. But you don't have to go to Winterfest for ice skating - there are other skating rinks at Glenelg and in Adelaide.
Also in Adelaide, the former Royal Adelaide Hospital comes alive for a free Open Day on July 11, but book quickly to catch the free tour. The demand is currently huge for the Dark History tours of the old hospital - it's a unique opportunity for a sneak peek at forbidden places.
Join in the free things to do at Hybrid World Adelaide on the weekend of July 21-22, with exciting action, like drone racing, combat robot fights and competitive video gaming - it's a must for the school holidays. A few days later you can learn (free) how to grow your own food at Magic Harvest in Salisbury.

Not Free, but Fun Things to Do in Adelaide Transport is a recurring theme on Sunday July 1 - you can take the South Coast Wine Train for a gourmet experience on the Fleurieu Peninsula, or enjoy Floating Melodies Myth and Music aboard the clipper "City of Adelaide".
Warrawong Wildlife Sanctuary has just started a new program in time for the school holidays - the Warrawong Junior Keeper Experience gives children a unique opportunity to feed and look after native animals at the sanctuary. It's available most days of the year, so if you want to do this in the holidays you had better book soon.

Down in Mount Gambier, the fight for the roundhouse the locals have had a temporary win. The roundhouse has been provisionally State heritage listed, and the scheduled demolition has been put on hold for now. A great win for the local community, but the fight continues to save it.
