School’s out and you’re looking for things to do to entertain the kids. You don’t want your children to sit inside all day and play video games. Summer holidays are a special time to connect, try new things, and create lasting memories as a family.

If there’s one area that’s great for kids, it’s the Adelaide Hills. No matter how old your children are, the Adelaide Hills have kid’s activities to satisfy all ages (and the big kids at heart).

Add these school holiday activities in the Adelaide Hills to your holiday calendar.

Things to do in the Adelaide Hills this school holiday

From strawberry picking to chocolate factories, koala cuddling to horse riding, there’s plenty of kids’ activities in the Adelaide Hills.

  1. Farm experiences

    In our lovely town of Hahndorf, you’ll find all types of adventures for your little country bumpkins. Visit the Hahndorf Farm Barn and introduce your children to all types of furry animals. There are unique experiences like pony rides, reptile shows, and cow milking.

  2. Chocolate factory

    You might have heard of the famous Melba’s Chocolate Factory. It’s a Hills’ favourite and an experience in itself for all ages. Your kids will feel like they’re a character in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Why not watch this movie together first?

  3. A day on the train

    Step back in time and travel between Hills towns on the SteamRanger Heritage Railway. The little boys in your family will love this. These old trains travel from the Hills to the Fleurieu Peninsula, so you can even ask friends to meet you in the beautiful town of Strathalbyn for lunch (and a potential beach day after).

  4. Camping

    What better place to get out in the great outdoors than the Adelaide Hills. But for you luxury-loving adults, the Hahndorf Resort offers all the amenities, plus more. Wake up with the fresh, expansive Adelaide Hills views, but still feel connected with Wi-Fi, power outlets, laundry, BBQs, and even a swimming pool. Plan your school holiday camp-out and check available dates today.

  5. Mini golf

    This is a game for all family members to enjoy. Visit Hahndorf Mini Golf for some friendly family competition. Kids play for just $6, so it’s a fun (and affordable) day out. The green is open 10.00-5.00pm during the school holidays. You can even ask your children to invite a friend so you can catch up with their parents.

    And, what’s better than affordable? Free. There’s a mini golf facility available at BIG4 Hahndorf Resort for guests to use, free of charge. Warm up your mini golf skills with us, before you start the friendly competition, with other families over at Hahndorf Mini Golf.

And the fun doesn’t just have to be for the kids. Check out these kid friendly wineries, keep the kids occupied whilst you enjoy a well-deserved glass of Adelaide Hills finest.

If camping isn’t your style check out our other accommodation for an affordable stay in the Hahndorf. Place yourself in the centre of all the action.

So go ahead and have some fun this school holiday in the Adelaide Hills.
