There are a lot of things a family can do on New Year’s Day in Adelaide. Staying home and playing games, watching television or just lazing about are always nice ways to spend the day but for those who want to make the most of this opportunity to do something special and start the year off right, Adelaide & beyond has a lot to offer, here are just five of the best ways to spend New Year’s Day with your family in Adelaide.

A Day at Adelaide Aquatic Centre

When was the last time you visited the Adelaide Aquatic Centre? There is something for everyone from splash pools, spas, saunas and BBQ facilities outside! Its a great outing and to keep cool inside!

The Big Wedgie 

Say hello to a New year with a BIG WEDGIE ride! Opened at New Years Day at West Beach- the big Wedgie is back and Wedgier than ever.

Road Tripping 

Grab the picnic rug, a lunch, the bikes and a head on a road trip for the day. The amazing thing about Adelaide is you can leave at 10 am and be back by 4 pm and still see heaps because everything is SO CLOSE! A great way to explore new things and start off 2018 with an awesome bucket list cross off of new discoveries.

Morialta Conservation Park

Nothing says New Years Day like a BBQ in the Adelaide Hills. Venture a short distance out of the city to gorgeous Morialta Conservation Park. If 2018 crept by and you did not have a chance to visit the super impressive development – get ready to explore! Five theme play areas, BBQ facilities and nature creek for water exploring.
