October Long Weekend | What’s On for Families & Kids in Adelaide

What’s On for Families & Kids in Adelaide over the October Long Weekend

The October long weekend coincides with the start of the school holidays so there’s plenty on offer for families to enjoy, and you can make the most of the longer days too with the start of daylight savings on Sunday 1 October. 

Spring is the perfect time to head outside and explore a new playground or walking trail, take a drive to the coast or up into the hills for the day, or book into a caravan park and take the kids for a camping adventure.

Play & Go is your FREE family friendly guide to Adelaide and your favourite resource for finding events and activities the kids will love.  Check out our daily ‘what’s on’ tabs below or scroll down for a comprehensive list of where to go and what to do over the long weekend.
