Top Things To Do in Adelaide for Families This Winter

Top Family Friendly things to do this Winter with Kids in Adelaide

As we head into the cold winter months, having to survive chilly nights and rainy days with little ones can be a challenge! However, just because the sun isn’t shining it doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to see and do around Adelaide.

Adelaide’s milder climate means that it is still possible to venture out into the fresh, crisp air and play outside on clear days.  Rug up, pack a picnic and head to one of our beautiful botanic gardens, a local park or head to the hills for a country drive.  

On a wet, rainy day consider heading to a cafe for a delicious hot chocolate, visit your local indoor play cafe, go to the movies or burn off some energy at an indoor activity centre.  Explore the city, especially North Terrace where places like our State Library and SA Museum are free to enter.

We have plenty of ideas to keep the kids out and about during the colder months!
