  • 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.

  • Trains! What else do kids want to see? My nephews are entranced by trains of ANY kind and whenever they visit Adelaide this is a place they adore. The National Railway Museum in Port Adelaide is an awesome place to check out Australian railway history through interactive educational activities, climbing into the cabs of trains, taking free train rides and comparing the old steam trains to the trains of today. There's even a really cool mini railway! Our Mr 3 LOVES it at the National Rail Museum and often asks to go - it's a great day out with his Dad and Grandad especially, who seem to enjoy the visits almost as much as the kids do! We can't get away with a visit, without going on the little steam train, but everyone seems happy with their ride and hearing the train whistle along the way is definitely a highlight! The National Railway Museum is well worth a look, and is very reasonably priced. It is suited to children of any age, but probably most enjoyable for ages 2-13. There's a lot to discover and learn at the museum and I highly recommend a visit in the school holidays when…
