Every Year There's New Fun Things to Do at the Royal Show
Highlights of What's On in Adelaide in September September is the time for the Royal Adelaide Show, when kids in Adelaide and families across South Australia make the annual pilgrimage to the Adelaide Showgrounds. It's a highlight of the year for most children, who pass through the gates with their eyes shining and hands clutching their savings ready to spend on rides, fairy floss and showbags.
For families on a budget here are some tips on saving money at the Royal Show here. The prices haven't been updated, but the same ideas still apply. You can also help others by climbing aboard Dulcie's shop of opportunity at the Show and buying something to help the Hutt Street Centre.
When the excitement and noise of the Royal Adelaide Show becomes too much, then escape the city to the Festival of Nature on the Fleurieu Peninsula coast? Enjoy fine foods, great wines and free things to do until September 9.

The fight to protect Adelaide's heritage buildings continues with an application to demolish century old Cobham Hall. The Mount Gambier railway roundhouse has been provisionally heritage listed, but is not safe yet. If you want to help, send an email to the Parliamentary Heritage Enquiry and tell them our heritage deserves better.
