5th April 2017
1. Brick-A-Laide, Adelaide Convention Centre, 14-15 April
Pay a visit to Adelaide’s biggest and most exciting LEGO fan event, Brick-a-laide. The two-day event returns to the Adelaide Convention Centre this Easter Long Weekend, supported by Australia’s best LEGO enthusiasts. Featuring an unbeatable line up of brick creations, showcased by local and interstate modellers and builders, you can expect to see a wide range of world class displays.
2. Adelaide Crows vs Essendon, Adelaide Oval, 15 April
Soak up the atmosphere at an AFL game at Adelaide Oval. Cheer on from the sideline as the mighty Adelaide Crows go head to head with Essendon on Easter Saturday.
3. Montaro Zoo, Adelaide Hills
After the recent arrival of 5 cheetah cubs, there is no better time to visit Montaro Zoo. A short 50-minute drive down the main interstate freeway, head to Monarto Zoo for a safari experience. Monarto is a 1,000-hectare open range zoo and is home to animals from all over the world. Stroll around the park on the walking trails or take the Zu-Loop Shuttle, which is a free hop-off, hop-on service to all wildlife viewing platforms. See lions, cheetahs, giraffe, African wild dogs and more.
4. Pay a visit to Melba’s Chocolate Factory, Adelaide Hills
Melba’s Chocolate Factory was first established in 1981 and is still today a favourite confectionary company for many South Australian’s. Melba’s continue to operate old heritage chocolate and confectionery making machinery and allow visitors to experience the old arts and techniques through their viewing rooms and tasting stations. Visitors are encouraged to speak to the staff who have mastered the use of the heritage equipment, making old fashioned favourites in the time honoured tradition. A visit to Melba’s is sure to excite the kids, and even take the big kids on a trip down memory lane (mum and dad).
Why not? After all, it wouldn’t be Easter without chocolate…
5. MegaAdventure Ariel Park, Adelaide
Take your family adventure to a whole new level of fun on the aerial SkyMate structure at MegaAdventure Aerial Park. Imagine playing tennis in the sky, rowing a boat mid-air or manoeuvring between obstacles like the floating esky, BMX bike or sky-high picnic table? And, for those who are up for the ultimate challenge, you can take a leap of faith from the ParaJump – all in the safety of a world-class harness. Whatever level of fun you may be up for, there’s an obstacle big or small for whole family.
