Family friendly fun things to do...

On a family vacation, a high priority is finding fun things to keep the children amused, entertained and engaged. And, hopefully, creating happy memories they take into adulthood

What are your suggestions for family friendly things to do?

And nearby at st kilda is the tram museum...which is very interesting. Years ago I took kids on the ranger guided walk on the mangrove boardwalk, and the kids were very interested and enjoyed it...dont know if they still do it. Lots to do, out there. ♡

Rather than flooding the boards why not make these a traveller article… much easier to link to when someone wants the info…. and also found using search engines :)

Makes sense Gurus and from the responses I think Adelaidiantraveler could probably do that now: keep up the good work everyone, I, for one, appreciate it.

Yes Adelaidean Traveller... it's a better idea to compile the information and make up a TOP QUESTIONS answer with links. A good one would be "Family Friendly Activities" for Adelaide and South Australia

Sometimes these long threads get lost in the general mix but a TOP QUESTIONS answer will always remain linkable

You asked for it, and I've added this thread to the "Top Questions" for Adelaide- feel free to add more suggestions

In the meantime, here's some more ideas...

- Adelaide's beaches (not do much fun in mid Winter!)

- Cleland Wildlife Park

- Scenic walk at Waterfall Gully- take a break for a snack at the cafe

- Dunstan Adventure Playground at St Peters

Enjoy:)
