  • We have long been fans of Toddler (and baby!) Sense, having taken our little baby Jack to weekly classes at their centre at Tusmore. What better location we thought, to celebrate our little guy's big first birthday than at his favourite place! (apart from his high chair where he eats food of course). With access to the huge kitchen, our party easily catered for about 40 odd people comfortably. They have seperate rooms including a large play room which the kids just loved, an eating room to serve your food (plenty of tiny tables and tiny chairs provided to serve the BYO food) and then of course the sensory room. So what exactly is a Toddler Sense party? Ideal for kids from 1 through to 6, but we had 7 year olds at the party who had a ball too, the session is broken up into 4 phases 1 hour of free play time in the huge play room Lunch time Sensory session run by one of the fabulous educators Cake/Happy Birthday/Party Bags Here's a quick overview of the party themes they currently offer: Party Time Pirates and Princesses Circus Time Sparkles Party Colour Party Christmas Party  The following Toddler…

  • There are so many pick your own activities around Adelaide, however no one can deny once you've tried a delicious freshly picked strawberry nothing else will ever compare! Strawberry picking season usually happens between October and May (weather dependant) but best to check each individual patch as they all vary.

  • 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. For more information click here or visit their facebook page!
