What’s On to Keep You Cool in Adelaide

By Laura Bakhitiarian

Adelaide, you’ve turned the weather right up to the “SIZZLE” setting, so here are some ways to stay cool and fresh…

(And no, they don’t all involve eating Rainbow Paddle Pops).

(Though Rainbow Paddle Pops do help).

1. Marion Holiday Park 

These legends have just created a new beer garden to go along with the existing kids water play area and it is ACE.

2. Nippers

Surf Life Saving SA run a great program over summer that will not only teach your kids about beach safety, but it’s the perfect place to be on a warm summers day… AT THE BEACH!

3. Ice Arena

The polar opposite of HOT, this frozen wonderland is fun for kids and provides them with an activity that you can’t usually do in SA…

4. Art Gallery 

Not only is the SA Art Gallery “cool” because of their super-sized air con system, but it’s always got a school holiday program and something “cool” to look at too. Plus – it’s FREE!

5. Summer Reading Challenge

For some of you, getting the kids to read OUTSIDE of the school term might be tricky (read as: Mission Impossible). However perhaps you can entice them with a cool space to hang out in – your local library could be just the thing or those lazy summer arvos.

6. GU Cinemas

Really, any excuse to eat popcorn and a choc top will do! Plus we love GU at Glenelg because it’s clean, family-friendly AND you can have a sneaky champers or coffee while watching My Little Pony with your little pony!

7. Holey Moley

The idea of playing golf in the middle of a scorcher makes us feel physically ill, so it’s a much better idea to head to this fun family-friendly indoor golf club. It’s a bonus that you can enjoy a bevvy or three while your kids have a blast as well.

8. X-Golf Marion 

We see a theme starting here… Adelaide’s very first indoor golf simulator has hit our state and it is brilliant fun (even for the really amateur golfer!)

9. Scroll Ice Cream Adelaide

Remember how we said they don’t all involve eating Rainbow Paddle Pops? Technically, we didn’t lie – but it does involve eating lots of ice cream, which just seems to taste even better when it’s in the shape of a scroll!
