When it’s hot in Adelaide, it’s really bloody hot. So here are some great parks where you can find FREE shade, water, and some playground fun to keep the kids happy and the electricity bill down. As always PLEASE be very careful with your kids around water. We love kids exploring, having fun in nature and having a splash but you need to watch them at all times! And don’t forget to slip, slop, slap and wrap! All of the places...Read More
One of those things that you just do not understand until you’ve had kids is how excellent a well timed pram walk can be. There’s something about that perfect ratio of smooth with a few soothing bumps and long enough to last at least one sleep cycle that will have you driving back to the same place every time you’re desperate for a bit of exercise…..or desperate to get bubs to sleep. We’ve had A LOT of babies over the years here at KiA so we’ve...Read More
Who doesn’t love a burger? The KiA team have slipped on their stretchy pants (ok that was just Tim) and taken to the streets to find the best family burgers. Fair to say our gastro mission uncovered some serious burger gold. Some we always knew were good, some we had to search bloody hard for and some, well we can’t actually tell you about, because burger disappointment is a real thing. We want fresh buns, tasty flame grilled meats, fancy...Read More

What’s more appealing than keeping the kids busy, happy and active these holidays!? When it’s all FREE!! If you’re like most parents in Adelaide, you will get half way through these school holidays and be struggling to work out how to keep the little minions occupied until they go back to school. If you’re like me, you want to do it without spending a fortune. I love hanging out with my kids, don’t get me...Read More
When we think of the playgrounds for toddlers we think of one key thing FENCES. Anything else is pretty much a bonus! We also look for swings, toilets and, even better, a nice shaded space. These things are not always possible (why don’t ALL playgrounds have fences ALL the way around?!), but check out these playgrounds around Adelaide that we think your kids- and you- will love [catlist id=1175 thumbnail=yes]Read More
FISH AND CHIPS. Who doesn’t love it? Whether it’s fish & chips at the beach on a hot night, or something to warm you up in winter, you really can’t go past the local fish & chip shop. Battered, crumbed, grilled or deep fried, there is just something about unwrapping the paper to reveal a delicious piece of fresh fish, being gently hugged by crispy hot chips. But fish & chip shops are so much more that just fish...Read More
Adelaide is home to some amazing playgrounds, but sometimes, your kids may have a really intense love for a very specific theme. Most kids do at some point, whether it be dinosaurs, pirates, trains or just wanting to run around and get so damn dirty that you think you may get arrested for stealing sand. Whatever your kid is into, we have scoured the archives and compiled a list of some of Adelaide’s Best Themed Playgrounds for you to...Read More
