Hey guys! Stay tuned to find you what we have in store for you this month!
1. SA Road trip
*Pick up and drop off will be at The Village as this is not an overnight event.
The April holidays are round the corner and what better opportunity to go on an adventure and explore the outskirts of Adelaide! The SA road trip is back, bigger and better! Grab your friends and join us for, not just one, but TWO whole days of action packed activities!
We kick start our trip on Day 1 with the ultimate paintball showdown. Then, we head over to Murray Bridge, a city located at the Murray River that is best experienced exploring on foot. Murray bridge has lots of great things to see and do, its practically a playground! Get up close and personal with the critters of Australia at our next stop, Cleland wildlife park. Hand feed the wallabies and kangaroos, cuddle a koala bear and watch out of the the portaroos scampering around under your feet! Immerse yourself in the natural bushland setting and interact with the free roaming animals throughout the whole park! Up next is a scenic drive up to Mount Lofty to get a breathtaking, sweeping view of the whole of Adelaide with the glorious sunset in the backdrop. This is definitely a sight you don’t want to miss.
We continue on to Day 2, starting with ice skating. Show off your speed and finesse on the ice, or if you dont know how to skate, there’s no better time to learn than now! Next, we travel down to Port Adelaide for lunch. Take in the unique beachside atmosphere at the seaside suburbs at the the range of quirky cafes or try out the good old fashion fish and chips by the beach.
It is fast becoming one of Adelaide’s premier eating out hot spots, known far and wide for its restaurants, cafes and pubs with a difference! To end things with a bang, our last destination will be Gepps Cross Kart Mania, the largest Go-Karting complex in South Australia. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the time to unleash the inner F1 Driver in you! We round off the trip with a final battle of epic proportions, Laser Tag!
