Highlights of What's On in Adelaide in June I can almost hear a collective sigh of relief from history fans, as we wave goodbye to South Australia's History Festival for another year. There were so many fun things to do in Adelaide last weekend that I couldn't possibly see everything I wanted to. But if you are looking for more of a history fix, then try the Prospect Hill Historical Museum this month for something quite different.
If you missed the Clare Gourmet Weekend in May, don't despair - the McLaren Vale Sea and Vines Festival returns on the June long weekend with a feast of fun things to do. Gourmet dinners, tastings, master classes, family entertainment and more, don't miss it!
Come to Harts Mill at Port Adelaide for Fork on the Road
What's On in Adelaide - Free Things to Do in June June is quite lean on free things to do in Adelaide, although Fork on the Road will pull the crowds back to Harts Mill at Port Adelaide on Saturday the 3rd.
A new exhibition at the Army Museum of South Australia opened this month commemorating Our Lighthorsemen and the centenary of the Battle of Beersheba. It's part of the rolling Anzac Centenary celebrations in SA, and is open every Sunday or by appointment.
Also just opened is a brand new museum, the Centre of Democracy - a collaboration between the History Trust of SA and the State Library of South Australia. It's offering a busy program of free things to do aimed at all ages, with a variety of activities for kids to encourage families to visit.
Not Free, but Fun Things to Do in Adelaide People interested in sustainability and treating the environment well should come to the World Environment Fair at the Adelaide Showgrounds on June 3-4. You can take a tour of one of the world's largest solar panel setups, explore a marine park, and there's activities for kids with freebies and nature play. Supported by the SA Government through DEWNR.
Also concerned about our environment are the Environmental Defenders Office, who are holding an entertaining Energy Hypothetical in Adelaide on June 8. Come along for the comedy capers and to help this not-for-profit agency keep the environment safe.
When the pangs of hunger are gnawing, you need an 'all you can eat' meal like from the Hahndorf Old Mill Hotel. Also for anyone with a solid appetite the Coopers Alehouse and these restaurants will safely satisfy you.
