EcoCaddy are a fleet of pedal-assisted electric trikes you’ve more than likely seen zipping around the streets and you might have even jumped on for a free ride through the city. But did you know they also run tours?

We took a ride on their Kids City Tour and it was brilliant! Our 90 minute tour took us to all the best parks, playgrounds, gardens and historic points around Adelaide city and our very knowledgeable guide Daniels, had some great stories and facts to share.
Did you know Alice in Wonderland can be found in Rymill Park?
Did you know there is a bee at the top of beehive corner?
Do you know what the purple pipes in the Parklands go?

We took a spin past the museum and the library and then off into Rymill Park to say hello to Alice, a hot lap around the Adelaide 500 race track, whipped past Marshmallow Park, into the Parklands, waved to the folks at TreeClimb, took a breather in the Himeji Gardens, stopped to smell the roses in Veale Gardens before heading back through the city through the backstreets and past some of the city street art before arriving back.

It’s the perfect amount of time to keep kids interested and when we got back my 7 year old squealed “I LOVED THAT” and I agree!

  • The Adelaide Gaol is one of the oldest remaining colonial public buildings in Adelaide and is the site of some of the State's more interesting, grisly past. Experience what life was like behind bars for the prisoners who once called the Adelaide Gaol their home. The Adelaide Gaol housed some of the state's most notorious and dangerous criminals. Almost 300,000 prisoners whiled away some time at His (or Her) Majesty's pleasure, and 45 unfortunates were executed within its walls - including the only woman to be executed in South Australia. Approximately 300,000 prisoners passed through the Gaol during its working years and 45 people were executed. Their bodies are buried within the grounds of the Gaol. The first public hanging took place in November 1840 while the site was still under construction.
