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 kids 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!).
