We did the Shadow Initiation museum game. Absolutely fabulous… The best use of tech like that I’ve ever come across. Is almost impossible to think how you could design a better hours entertainment for a family really… And not at all expensive. Super well done SA museum!” – Jeremy Daalder
Simply amazing! So much to learn from here. Love all of the stuffed animals, minerals, fossils and much more. I spent a few hours discovering the collection at the museum and had a great time.” – Levi Stock

I love it here! It’s nice to be in the middle of the city and not know it. Well maintained gardens, free guided tours if you’re into that thing, a couple cafes and plenty of places to sit down and have a picnic.” – Ashleigh Richardson
That’s a wonderful place you should not miss no matter if a local or
a visitor !!  There is so much to see and to do that I recommend to plan a whole day there.
Take on the weekends the picnic basket and the kids (small & big) and enjoy your day out surrounded by nature and animals. You can even split your time in going to the zoo, there is a gate leading there.” – Sue Smith

This is one of my favourite places, where friends & family always have a lovely time to enjoy fresh local produce & wine. The wine line list is extensive, over 400 which change frequently & cover the regional, state, Australian & international wines. The opportunity to pay as you go, whereby you can taste test a wine (a minimal amount), buy 1/2 a glass or a full one, or none enjoy a non alcoholic beverage. The platter options are excellent & the atmosphere & staff are lovely.” – Julie Palmer

We visited for the Adelaide fringe as there were numerous shows in the variety of rooms and spaces at the centre. not only were the shows we have seen so far very good but the facilities are really pleasant and the food we had was delicious. you can go here for wine tasting sessions although we haven’t actually tried one but others have told me they are really great. It is easily accessible, has a lift, space, and some lovely friendly staff. The centre is open all the time but during the fringe it takes on a whole new even better persona. don’t miss it. The gardens are also really nice and it fits nicely into the Botanic Gardens.” – Derick Weston
