Top 10 things to do with tweens and teens in Adelaide

Play, Teens & Tweens

When you’re looking for activities to do with your tweens and teens, you probably want to make sure they tick three key boxes:

  • They aren’t too expensive (so they can bring a friend perhaps)
  • Keep them mentally or physically active (so you can avoid the dreaded, “I’m bored. This sucks.”
  • Something that is supervised, but where you could still allow them their “independence” while keeping an eye on them!

So here are ten of the best for your teens and tweens to enjoy in Adelaide…


Bounce is always going to be a favourite for your tweens and teens. You’ll probably enjoy having a jump too (provided your pelvic floor is up to it that is!). They now have two fantastic locations at Marleston & Greenacres.

  • X golf needs to be seen and experienced to truly grasp how much fun it is. Words don’t do it justice. It isn’t just a “golf simulator”, it is a golf experience. Adelaide’s first X-Golf venue, this amazing facility caters for up to 75 guests at any time providing visitors with a combination of advanced golf simulator technology and plenty of other entertainment options including pool tables, pinball machines and arcade games. The realism is unbelievable, with the technology able to replicate exactly just how bad I am at golf. You will even be frustrated and angry, just like a real round of golf! But with almost 100 international courses to choose from, you can live out your golfing dream playing your fave course. The venue is outstanding. Plenty of room and heaps of TVs with as much sport as you can handle. If you want a break from golf, try your hand on the pool table, pin ball machine, arcade games, electronic (and real) darts. You really can spend a day there and time will fly. My tip is bring your own clubs. They have plenty if you don’t have your own, but for any avid golfer there is…
