Get up high
If you’ve got little daredevils on your hands, get them climbing and challenging themselves in a safe and exciting environment. For natural thrills, TreeClimb is the perfect place to be during spring. With two locations – Adelaide Parklands and beautiful Kuitpo Forest – TreeClimb is fun for the whole family. There are activities for children as young as two. RAA members can get 15 per cent off all bookings at TreeClimb.
For a day out by the beach, head to West Beach Adventure and watch your kids soar through the sky. With more than 70 obstacles to tackle and crazy experiences like tennis in the sky, the MegaClimb is the ultimate energy burner. For the little ones, the Kids Course will happily tire out your little climbers. RAA members save 10 per cent on the MegaClimb.
Now that things are warming up, head indoors to one of the many museums across Adelaide, where you kids can play and learn at the same time.
Try the South Australian Museum, with more than five million specimens on display, or head to Port Adelaide and visit the trifecta: South Australia Aviation Museum, National Railway Museum and South Australian Maritime Museum. Grab a Museums in the Port brochure at your first stop to access discounted admission.
For your budding scientists, try the MOD. Museum on North Terrace. The exhibitions here are always changing, so you can go back time and again to discover something new.
