Discover, In Adelaide, Regional Features, School Holidays

It’s baaaackkkkk and sporting some seriously cool stickers on the seats! (Errr…that be OURS)

How awesome is it to see the MIX 102.3 GIANT WHEEL return to Glenelg for the summer, thanks to Lumo Energy?!

Skyline Attractions is thrilled to be coming back to Glenelg for the forth year running. From Friday 29th October 2021 to Sunday 8th May 2022 you can take a ride 35 metres in the air on the Giant Wheel overlooking Moseley Square. We LOVED it so much last year that we have jumped on board this time around as an official digital media sponsor!

The SkyLine Attractions Observation Wheel (the real name for the Mix 102.3 Giant Wheel) is the tallest travelling, portable observation wheel in Australia, at 35 metres high, with 24 gondolas that seat up to 144 people at capacity. Up to 6 people can fit in each gondola (although 6 large adults will be a very tight fit!) and it makes a super fun family outing, or summer highlight with friends. Imagine your self kicking back and taking in spectacular views of the Adelaide coastline.

While the photos and whole experience is excellent during the day time, visit on dusk or at night and you’ll be treated to a gorgeous photo opportunity with the wheel housing more than 9,000 lights – hello Instagram?!

  • Situated behind the Broadway hotel in Baker St Glenelg South we love this as a local community playground. Surrounded by some lovely old gum trees, Baddams Green playground has a lovely feel. Each time we rock up to this playground the community have left new toys for the kids to share and play with. Whilst it doesn't offer a huge amount of play equipment it is enough to keep the kids entertained for awhile. The Baddams Green playground features 2 slides, including a curvy for the slightly older kids and a straight one for the littlies, and also has lots of climbing , sliding and balancing pieces to keep the kids busy. There is also a swing set situated near the garden. The garden is a lovely spot for the kids to play in and around featuring some wooden logs and stumps to climb over and on. The playground is FULLY fenced , unfortunately has NO shade or NO toilets. There are a couple of park benches to sit on along with one picnic table. The playground is located one street back from The Broadway so has lots of options for coffee and food. Organik Café, Seafarring Fools and Mediterranean…

  • Combine a fantastic playground with all the facilities you will need, with a bit of local history, and you have the Old Gum Tree historic site and playground at Glenelg.  With 3 seperate undercover areas to cater for multiple groups at one time, scattered around a spacious area shaded by huge (probably gum) trees, this is the perfect spot for your family gathering or just an afternoon play.  It is fully fenced, although the surrounding streets aren’t very busy anyway, plus it has toilets and 2 BBQs.  More importantly though is the flying fox. We have tried a lot of flying foxes but not many have 2 cables, one with your usual rope but the other with a chair with harness! Such a great idea to include every kid who wants to have a go. Add in a couple of swings, a slide and a rope climb and kids of all ages will love the very modern and updated equipment.  Don’t forgot to take a look at the Old Gum Tree site and learn why our basketball team is called the 36ers!
