Quick quiz - who knows what the capital of South Australia is? Here are some hints: it has plenty of wide open spaces to play in. It has tons of beautiful gardens to explore. It has some amazing museums for kids to learn in, and it also has a host of family fun activities great for all ages!

Can you guess? Why, it’s Adelaide of course!

If you have never ventured to this beautiful city, now is the perfect time! If you live there, then get ready to be surprised with how much you can actually do in your own city!

It’s Australia - so we know that there are going to be plenty of those hot summer days and cool spring evenings to enjoy in the beautiful outdoors. Great thing there are places in Adelaide such as the Adelaide Botanic Garden - which is so close to the city but makes you feel like you are just surrounded by nature. 

You also have the really interesting Victorian Garden, which takes the kids back in time to what gardens would be like during the Victorian times! 

Have you ever wanted to explore a city from a whole new angle? Why not experience the Adelaide Gondola, where the whole family can just glide the day away!

Adelaide is also a city full of history and culture, and it’s a great place for kids to really learn - and enjoy it at the same time!

There are a number of galleries and museums for the whole family. The South Australian Museum is five floors of amazing exhibits (including a giant squid!), and the Art Gallery of South Australia let’s children really get lost in the wonderful world of art. Maybe it will inspire them and you will have the next Picasso on your hands!

Animals? Yes we love them too! Which is why Family Days Out LOVES Adelaide Zoo , with over 1,800 animals that are just waiting to make new friends. It’s a great hands-on experience and one that is perfect to learn all about the wonderful creatures we have on our planet.

Don’t you worry though - Adelaide has some surprises though! From ice skating, flying experiences and yes - chocolate tours! There is always something that you can find to enjoy on your family day out.

Don’t forget kids - if you’re outdoors in summer make sure you slip, slop, slap and wrap!
