Top Things to do with Toddlers in Adelaide

Places To Go & Things To Do with Toddlers in Adelaide

Toddlers are curious and active and always exploring their surroundings so why not take them on adventures that will have them laughing with delight! From indoor play centres, playgrounds and wildlife parks to story time at the library, spending time with your toddler is a great way to bond with them and watch them grow and learn. 

Take a look at our list below for some inspiration and discover some of the best activities for toddlers, most of them tried, tested and approved by our team of Play & Go parents.  

If you’re looking for concerts and shows to take your little one – you can’t go past Play School Live in Concert which is usually in Adelaide in August and The Wiggles concert has always been a favourite. Look out for wonderful theatre performances by Windmill Theatre who often do shows tailored specifically for younger audiences. 

If your toddler has a favourite activity or venue not mentioned drop us an email with the details to hello@playandgo.com.au
