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…
Move over Tarzan, TreeClimb is the Adelaide City Parklands’ newest attraction and it’s calling all energetic, outdoors loving adventurers – young and old! Thrill-seekers, nature enthusiasts and curious adventurers can walk, climb and swing your way around six elevated tree-walk courses, 70 obstacles and several zip lines within a 16,000-square-metre zone.
Rock Climbing, Abseiling and Zipline experience including the EPIC 15-metre rock climbing wall and 324m forest zipline (SA’s longest!) Test yourself on the High Ropes Challenge or take a ‘Leap of Faith’ trapeze or 3-person 18 metre Mega Swing!
This is what a day at Mt Lofty Adventure Hub looks like! You’ll find them in the gorgeous setting of Woodhouse Activity Centre and they’re open every Saturday and Sunday!
This is a great day out for older kids
