WOMADelaide 2017 Review
Once again Botanic Park transformed into a magical world of music and dance over the March long weekend as it played host to WOMADelaide, now in its 25th year. WOMADelaide is a fantastic four-day festival with something for everyone. This year there were eight separate stages and as usual a diverse and spectacular line-up.
WOMAD with the […]
HONK! Jr Review | Adelaide Fringe
By Catherine Leo
“Honk! Jr” is an exceptionally high quality production of a modern version of Hans Christian Anderson’s tale “The Ugly Duckling”.
Honk! Jr is performed by the Young Australian Broadway Chorus, which is a course for 8 -18 year olds. I was utterly impressed with their professionalism as I regularly scanned […]
Balloonatics | Adelaide Fringe 2017 | Review
Set in “The Bunka” of the Austral Hotel, this show is slightly on the ‘fringes’. The “Bunka” is a great little room, perfect for this funny show featuring the effervescent and very likeable comedian Chris Henry, complete with kilt and fantastic Scottish accent! Henry is witty and funny and […]

Dust off your party pants: 11am is the new 11pm!
If you’ve been missing those days pre-kids when you could shake your stuff on the dance floor then add Kid/Dub Time Machine to your Fringe wish-list. A smorgasbord of favourite dance hits from the 1950s to now, Kid/Dub Time Machine will have you […]
Like it or Loop It | Review
by Catherine Leo
Adam Page has a face that radiates joy and a genuine love for what he does, that is instantly likeable. A brilliant muso, you’d at first be mistaken that he’s just got a few toilet gags up his sleeve (especially from the promo image above), but his talents […]
Kids’ Weekend at Adelaide Writers’ Week | Review | 9 March 2017
I took the children to Kids’ Weekend at the Adelaide Writers’ Week on Sunday and they had a blast. There was plenty to see and do and it’s such a great location with all those lovely shady trees, bunting strung up everywhere and books […]
Splodge Kids Play Cafe Review | February 2017
Fantastic small play cafe in the south (glitter everywhere but not at our houses)!
The lovely ladies of Baby & Toddler Destinations Adelaide have written this review of Splodge Kids Play Cafe – thanks for sharing with us. (see their original post here)
Splodge Corner is a small but delightfully quiet and […]
Singing in the Rain | Adelaide Fringe Review
It’s hard to believe that a cast of 10 to 18 year olds have managed to produce a musical production so slick! They certainly have done this under the direction of Theatre Bugs’ Michelle Davy.
Singin in the Rain Jr was an all-singing, dancing, tapping musical with bright costumes […]

Out Of This World | Fringe Review
Set in the cosy Spiegel Zelt Tent, this little show tells the story of three astronauts who embark on a space mission to retrieve space rocks from one of the planets in our solar system.
The story includes tiny little snippets of information about each planet. On their journey, they encounter […]
Little Death Club | Review
Many laughs but not for those who are easily offended
It had been a busy few weeks years in our household and time for a night out without the kids, so we got dressed up and headed to the Royal Croquet Club’s fabulous new home at Pinky Flat to see Little Death Club.
Cirque Africa at the Adelaide Fringe | Review
100% African 100% Energy 100% Fun
If you’ve driven past Hindmarsh Square lately you may have noticed the Cirque Africa Big Top and been curious about the show. We had the absolute pleasure of seeing Cirque Africa and I’ll put it out there: this is one of the most […]
Wallace & Gromitt meet Mr Bean meets Tim Burton in this charming and highly visual show about magic and friendship
If your kids are anything like mine and are forever ransacking your recycling for boxes and bits & bobs for their latest creation then their imaginations will be sparked by Loose Ends. Walking into the Cascadeur tent […]
Children Are Stinky
Don’t miss this fabulous circus comedy.
Hot off the back of five star sell-out seasons in Melbourne and Edinburgh (where they also picked up the coveted Children’s Choice Award at the Edinburgh Fringe), Children Are Stinky is billed as high brow toilet humour for immature kids – as you might expect from the name […]
Cruickshank Reserve | Review
A lovely shady park with plenty to do for children of all ages
Nestled in a lovely leafy intersection in Maylands is Cruickshank Reserve. It’s on the corner of Clifton and Phillis St, just across from the Maylands Hotel. The Cruickshank Reserve playground has always been a favourite of ours due to the range […]
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).
This modern […]
Kid & Hub Review
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.
When you drive along Port Road, you really can’t miss the Water Wonderland world that has landed this January in Adelaide. It is apparently the world’s largest inflatable water theme park, so it was definitely worth checking out. What is it like? Check out our pics and videos below for a little taste.

Fancy Ices Ice Cream Review
Fancy Ices Dessert Cafe is a little hidden gem tucked away in Field Street (off Gouger Street in Adelaide). It’s the first liquid nitrogen ice cream parlour in Adelaide and opened in January 2015. You’ve seen Heston Blumenthal and Masterchef use it in fancy recipes – now you can have your […]
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 […]

There’s a lot to love about Sing, from the people who brought us The Secret Life of Pets, Despicable Me and Minions.

Cobbler Creek Recreation Park has had a huge revamp and as part of the $1M upgrade it includes a fabulous new playground and bike trails.
Corner of Bridge Rd & Smith Rd, Salisbury East (between Salisbury & Golden Grove) approx. 19 km north of Adelaide CBD.
At Play & Go we do not add […]
Scroll ice cream is a unique ice cream experience with amazing flavours that pop in your mouth.
Inspired by Thai street vendors, Scroll use a cold plate technique – a unique method which is something we haven’t experienced before. They pride themselves in using local ingredients and the result is flavour that you can really taste.
How to Make Playdough – Uncooked Playdough Recipe
This is an uncooked playdough recipe which is super easy to make. My playdough recipe testers really enjoyed kneading the warm playdough mixture and said it was good playdough because it was soft and smooth and squishy. They also loved seeing the drops of food colouring gradually mix into […]
