Highlights of What's On in Adelaide in July While we haven't seen much rain yet, it's going to be easy to beat the winter blues with a load of fun things to do in Adelaide and the suburbs during July. Port Adelaide is becoming an unlikely winter wonderworld with an outdoor ice skating rink for Winterfest at Hart's Mill. And for those of us who can't skate, there will be flavoursome food and wine and free live entertainment to coax us to visit.
The Umbrella Winter City Sounds music festival kicks off in July too, with events showcasing a variety of musical genres at some pretty iconic locations. Dark Matter at Z Ward Asylum features live acts, video projections, visual exhibitions, cell installations, DJ's, booze, wine and soup, while legendary UK indie band The Wedding Present are at The Jade, or find one of several free things to do for the Umbrella festival.
For something quite different, join surreal artist Andrew Baines on a Walk for Peace and another of his wacky photo shoots. It takes place at Henley Beach on July 23, with a walk to Grange jetty and back.

Not Free, but Fun Things to Do in Adelaide There's competition for Port Adelaide's Winterfest down at the Bay, which has created their own Winter Wonderland with an ice skating rink on the beachfront. Or you can compromise with Wonderful Winter at Henley Square Pavilion. It's all great fun for kids during the school holidays.
Other Exciting Things to See and Do in Adelaide
The best time to visit the Flinders Ranges and mid North of South Australia is during the cool weather, and our writers have been doing just that. It's two years since I looked at Peterborough attractions and the town is a lot more active now. Writer Steve Hudson recently followed the Peterborough Heritage Walk and checks out some off the rails accommodation in Peterborough.
Beautiful photo of the Peterborough Railway Hotel (and thanks for including the links to Umbrella Winter City Sounds and Dark Matter - we're hoping to finally make the visit to Z Ward through this event)
