You may have lived down south your whole life and driven past this place a thousand times, without even realising it was a mere metres away on your daily commute! Located just to the west of the South Road mega freeway junction at Darlington and accessible from Sturt Road near the Police Station, this hidden gem is an absolute must.

For the Kaurna people of the Adelaide plains, this site is a traditional ceremonial meeting place still used today.

The Living Kaurna Cultural Centre offers Aboriginal and environmental education programs, events and performances. The venue is also available to hire for meetings, training days, events and workshops. We went a few years ago for a primary school excursion and it was a first class experience. The guides were fantastic and extremely knowledgeable about the history of the area, taking the time to explain the incredible history of the Kaurna people in the area.

With modern facilities making it a truly wonderful experience, we can’t recommend this enough. Tours are not quite yet back as they slowly open up, but that will no doubt change quickly over the coming weeks.

  • The Marion Cultural Centre is a large facility, catering for many different age groups and many different interests. This is a great place to check out for school holiday activities, or even during the week. There's cabarets, monkey's playing drums, famous kids singers and authors, art work, books and much more! I'm all for public libraries, and the one at the MCC is fantastic. It has all your needs (including internet, photocopying, a huge range of books, DVD's, board games....) and has many different areas to sink down and immerse yourself in piles of books with your kids. The library operates 7 days a week and Signatures Cafe is located close by if you feel like sitting down with a borrowed book and a coffee before heading home. Libraries are not only a great way of saving money but they are full of such knowledgeable people who are up to date with all the current books and resources to help you or to entertain your children. The MCC has lots of different sections. There's often events on for kids and families on weekends, and it boasts a very full program in the school holidays. There's also the Gallery M arts…

  • Where: Malwa Street, Glandore The fabulous playground at the Glandore Community Centre is now open and we think it looks sensational! The highlight of course is the huge 'birdcage' climbing structure which leads into a great tube slide, which is big enough to keep the older kids entertained but also is just right for the brave younger ones to try. There is a 3 on 3 basketball court, and a table tennis table plus plenty of lawned area's including a mini soccer pitch (perfect spot to pack the car with ALL the balls). We loved the little pump track for the smaller crew to ride and scoot around, plus the artwork scattered around adds a really nice touch to a very well put together facility for the community. Parents will enjoy the seating, as well as the natural shade from the mature trees in the park, and there is a small fence that offers some barrier between the playground and the road. It is only a relatively quiet side street however, so it is in a good spot for a bit of peace and quiet well away from busy South Road. Toilets can be found in the adjoining Community Centre.
