My Kingdom for a Horse

191 Wright Street, Adelaide 5000

My Kingdom for a Horse’s light filled set up is the perfect backdrop to charge up for a day of fun and adventures. The Wright Street favourite is back in fine form and is celebrating with both a revamped space and reimagined menu (buttermilk waffle eye candy below). They have undoubtedly been missed by locals so be sure to make a booking via the website.

Adelaide Zoo

Frome Rd, Adelaide 5000

The unique Variety Children’s Zoo is full of interactive areas to engage the most curious of explorers. Nestle in to the dedicated presentation area to hear keepers give you the inside scoop on all the Zoo’s favourite creatures. Still have energy to burn? You’re in luck. The Children’s Zoo is situated right next to the Nature’s Playground which is filled with equipment suitable for all abilities.

Riverbank Precinct

Elder Park, King William Street, Adelaide 5000

Experience the Riverbank from a different perspective! Hop on board the Popeye for a cruise down the River Torrens, complete with live commentary and fun stories about Adelaide's past and present. If you fancy steering your own path, jump in one of Captain Jolley’s Paddle Boats. Be sure to keep an eye out for feathered friends!


188 Grenfell St, Adelaide 5000

Step inside the East End’s very own little ‘greenhouse’. Laden with luscious plants, expansive seating areas, and a sprinkle of adorable little booths, it’s the perfect spot to stop for lunch. A choice of burgers will delight even the fussiest of eaters and some delicious bites like the crab taco for the more adventurous. If you’re on the run, swing past and grab a coffee to go from their express booth.

South Australian Museum

North Terrace, Adelaide 5000

When it comes to family-friendly learning, look no further than the Museum of South Australia! Founded in 1856, this museum has been educating and inspiring Adelaideans for generations. A regular roster of fun exhibitions for kids will keep young imaginations ticking, and the largest collection of Aboriginal artefacts in the world is always worth investigating.

Adventure Rooms Adelaide

Level 1/51-53 Rundle Mall, Adelaide 5000

Put your detective skills to the test. Adventure rooms offer live ‘escape the room’ experiences. Your team is locked away in a room with hidden and mysterious objects that are clues on how to escape. As the clock ticks away you must work together to think outside the square and find the final key to freedom.

According to their website, only 30% of people escape. Challenge accepted?
