Looking For Fun Things to Do? Adelaide Comes Alive in Winter

Highlights of What's On in Adelaide in June
As chill winds in June announce the arrival of winter in Adelaide, it's no excuse to retreat and huddle at home. In fact, with electricity prices sky high, you can still go out and save money by enjoying a hot mulled wine in the Adelaide Hills. But you don't even need to go past the city for winter entertainment in Adelaide, because our newest museum will warmly welcome you inside. For a very different experience try some of the free things to do at MOD. at UniSA.

Exercise is the best way to stay warm in winter, bringing health benefits too. Join in the free guided walks in the Adelaide parklands and discover places that you have never seen. Or head for Belair National Park in the Adelaide Hills, where willing guides will show you its hidden secrets free. Keep an eye out for the stunning purple mushrooms that are around at the moment.

If you're smart, you will plan ahead for Winterfest Port Adelaide at Harts Mill in July. Bookings are already open for the ice skating, food events and other entertainment. If you don't book early you may miss out completely.

What's On in Adelaide - Free Things to Do in June
One of the popular free things to do in Adelaide is to join the party at a Fork on the Road food truck festival. The next food fiesta is on June 2 at Port Adelaide with the 80's theme "Fork Just Wants to Have Fun". Don't forget to take the family.

After you see MOD. at UniSA, it's only a few steps to see the stunning exhibits at the free Fuse Glass Prize finalist exhibition at the Jam Factory gallery on Morphett Street. I just love the creativity of the entries.

South of Adelaide there's a new display of street art at the Capri Theatre with a huge new mural outside. Admire the mural and then enter the free competition to guess the films depicted. Time it right and you can catch the fab new Gilles at the Grounds market at Wayville showgrounds on your way home.

Another free competition is also open to everyone, and needs no special skills. Take a photo of any state heritage listed place in South Australia, and enter the photo in the free Heritage SnAps Competition. You're not allowed to edit your photo in most categories, so the only hard part is pressing the button. Then send your photo(s) in, and see if you have won a prize.

Not Free, but Fun Things to Do in Adelaide
The first weekend of June is full of fun things to do: an international film festival for women at Port Adelaide, the Mega Toy Fair AND the World Environment Fair for all ages at Wayville showgrounds, take a scenic ride on the South Coast Wine Train from Mount Barker, or head to the Gladstone Gaol Medieval Fair.

Next up is the Queen's birthday June long weekend. Escape the city to the sunny Flinders Ranges for a weekend of family fun, riding mountain bikes at the Fat Tyre Festival, alternatively go with the flow at Sea and Vines. Or join the culture club at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival - the choice is yours.

Also on the long weekend, you can visit one of Adelaide's awesome castles. The former Camelot Castle is holding an event - Murder and Music at the Manor.

Over in Mannum motoring enthusiasts can join in the thrills of the SA Truck and Ute Show.

Other exciting things to do in Adelaide during June are the Dinner in the Dark, which sounds rather naughty but is actually a sensory challenge for charity. It's followed by the Adelaide Boat Show and a historical Murder and Madness tour at Z Ward.

Other Exciting Things to See and Do in Adelaide
Our writers have been foraging for feasts for you, and the Mukbang Korean cuisine bar comes well recommended. If you're shopping for out of season specials at Harbourtown, give the Wooden Spoon a go, or wander down the road to refresh yourself at Coffeetime Co at Glenelg.

Whether you're new to Adelaide or have lived here for years, it's always good to meet new friends. Our writer Paula recommends the Adelaide Theatre & More Social Club when you looking for good company and fun things to do in Adelaide.
