Your Guide to the Best Ice Cream Places Around Adelaide
I scream you scream we all scream for ice cream!
Here at Play & Go we love our ice-cream – especially in the warmer months, but a bit of cold weather doesn’t stop us eating it winter too. We love it so much we thought we’d […]
Hello big giraffe! This splendid creature stands guard in front of the modern playground at Jubilee Park, Pt Noarlunga, and was introduced when the playground received an upgrade late 2016.
The new equipment that was installed is part of the modern playground area, just outside of the beloved Onkaparinga Wooden Fort Adventure Playground (pictured below).

Broken Things | What matters is how we choose to respond to the broken-ness | Guest Post by Kathleen Fleming of Majestic Unicorn
This was my hallway last Wednesday.
Broken. Sharp. Treacherous.
This was my hallway.
It was my son who did this.
Sometimes, often really, things break – irreparably. And it takes your breath away … straight away.
It took my breath away when my son stormed into the bathroom, frustrated, angry, fed-up for his very own, very significant to him, reasons. And when he chose […]

Kid & Hub opened in Maylands on Monday 6 February 2017. It’s been described as a unique place for parents, offering activities to foster children’s creativity and a whole lot more. There is coffee and a play hub that you can drop into anytime, as well as formal pre-booked activity sessions.
If you’ve wanted to try surfing but not sure where to start, then having lessons is a great way to go.

The brand new McDonald’s Green Fields (opposite Mawson Lakes) has just opened in December 2016 and it’s not your usual Maccas. It’s all grown up, with a modern and fresh new look. A little bit upmarket Nordic and a little bit fancy around the edges, with great natural light and soft lighting options.
This section near […]

New North Adelaide Playspace Review
by Susannah Marks
The new North Adelaide Playspace is situated on the corner of Bundeys Road and MacKinnon Parade. With a mixture of open space, landscaping, nature play elements, sensory play opportunities and some shady space to sit, it was a big hit with our children (aged between 1 and 9).
It was great […]
Harry’s Deli at Wirra Wirra, McLaren Vale | Review
by Emma Parkinson of Adelaide Boutique Online
Coffee, wine, beer, cider, cheese, cake… these are a few of my favourite things….
After a less than relaxing drive with the kids doing a great impersonation of the Ultra Tune ad’s annoying noise in the back of the car….I discover myself […]
Commissary | Queen Vic Building, Rose Park
Cafe Review by Susannah Marks
I’d been hearing rumours about a new cafe that was opening up in the Queen Vic building next to Victoria Park. This morning with a few moments to spare, and with a need for my caffeine fix, I decided to pay Commissary a visit.
Commissary sits […]

Eating Out in Bali | for Families
One of the best things about holidays is the food, and also not having to cook! Just being able to enjoy family meals together every day is special as many families are busy and may not get to sit down and eat together at every meal at home. This […]

It’s been voted as the number 1 water park in Asia on Trip Advisor, and I can totally see why. Waterbom is a must visit attraction for families in Bali. It’s a water park with plenty of waterslide rides to thrill all ages.

Emily Loves to Bounce | Review
The creative geniuses behind award-winning, internationally renowned Patch Theatre have once again managed to produce more brilliant theatre for children with Emily Loves to Bounce, loosely based on the book of the same name by Michael Stephen King.

The Velo Precinct Review
“On ya bike” Lycra optional at The Velo Precinct!
Am I dreaming? From where I am sitting, all three children ranging in age from five to 12 are happily playing outside, the sun is shining and the birds are singing. I am drinking a coffee, eating a glorious bowl of colourful granola, without the normal […]

A family day trip to the McLaren Vale wine region
Visiting a wine region with your kids? Surely that’s no fun, right?
Visiting a wine region isn’t about consuming as much wine as you can. When you dig beneath the surface, visiting a wine region can be […]

50SIXONE Dessert Bar | Review
Willy Wonka eat your heart out! No golden ticket required here! My daughter and I have just arrived at Adelaide’s newest sleek dessert cafe, 50sixone.
Yes it’s freezing in Adelaide, and yes I was just after a coffee hit; until we spotted it across the room……the OMG! Snapchat That! One of 50sixone’s ‘Insta-Famous Shakes’. What a sight […]
The 52 Storey Treehouse.
Leave your logic at the door because you certainly won’t need it for this show! The 52 Storey Treehouse written by authors Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton and adapted for stage by Richard Tulloch is full of fun, silly characters and plain nonsense, which is why it is so appealing for children (and adults)!
