Adelaide School Holidays – December & January 2018
Find all the best activities & ideas for the Adelaide Summer School Holidays.
To make it easier for you to find things for the kids to do during the school holidays, the Play & Go team have put together our Holiday Guide featuring some of the most popular, and some not-so-well-known activities on offer. There are venues all over Adelaide that offer vacation care programs, workshops, clinics, classes and activities for the kids, plus there are plenty of fun things to do together as a family.
