Highlights of What's On in Adelaide in September
The city of Adelaide blossoms as we come into spring, and we're suddenly spoilt for choice with so many fun things to do. The Royal Adelaide Show, Father's Day, the school holidays and a flurry of festivals ensure that there's something to suit everyone's taste.

Dads can be a challenge when finding things to do on Father's Day, but here are a few suggestions that you will find useful. Over at Plant 4 it's not too late to book a delicious Father's Day lunch with a licensed bar, or head to historic Urrbrae House for a free guided tour at 2pm.

The Nature Play Festival starts at the end of September, packed with (mostly) free things to do during the school holidays. Also open just in time is the new Morialta Nature Playground, one of several new nature play spaces.

You need to discover more soon about the Open State 2017 festival which starts at the end of the month. It's full of unusual, tasty, strange and exciting things to do, and has many free events too. Check out the program - but don't leave it too late, as the best events will be booked out.

What's On in Adelaide - Free Things to Do in September
It's all happening the first weekend of September with lots of free things to do. Come and Try Dragonboating, a new RSPCA Op Shop to visit, and the Fathers & Generations of Horsepower motor show in the Westfield Marion car park all compete for your attention.

Sunday brings the 2017 Festival of Marmalade, while you can experience Splash Adelaide's Cosmic Array Installation in Elder Park on both days of the weekend.

The free Concours d'Lemons Down Under on September 23 in the west parklands will be a great laugh - it celebrates the worst cars ever made. Also returning at the end of the month are free guided walks in Belair National Park, and another huge book sale of old and out of print books.

Not Free, but Fun Things to Do in Adelaide
The Royal Adelaide Show rightly takes the spotlight for the first half of the month, as families with children head there in droves. Of course prices go up every year but we have tips for how to save money when you visit, and recommendations for free things to do at the Show.

Explore beautiful Open Gardens in SA on September 2-3, support ecology charity Sea Shepherd with a fun tour on the Dolphin Explorer on September 9, or celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Tramway Museum at the end of the month.

Finally remember to have your say on the parklands this month, because consultation closes soon.

Other Exciting Things to See and Do in Adelaide
It's fun to visit beautiful lookouts close to the city, and we have some recommendations for you. But do you get the same perspective from Adelaide City Rooftops? You will have to take the High Adelaide Tour during the Open State Festival to find out.

If you get high on food then take a look at these top spots on Gouger Street: you may be in for a surprise. Also in Adelaide city is the unlikely named Poke Me cafe which is changing our traditional culinary landscape.

Great Coffee at Sheoak Cafe Belair


Locals swear by the food and coffee from Sheoak Cafe at Belair, and it's only a few minutes from Belair National Park. By contrast you're less likely to see a koala on cosmopolitan Kensington Road at the Manna Coffee Shop, but it's a handy place to know when you're in the area.
