Adelaide Fringe

Address: 136 Frome St, Adelaide SA 5000, Australia

Website: https://adelaidefringe.com.au/

Next schedule: 17 February – 19 March 2023

Put yourself out there and experience the vibrance of outdoor activities. The Adelaide Fringe is the world’s second biggest celebration of arts, both traditional and contemporary.

There’s something for everyone here, from interactive events to comedy, magic, and circus spectacles. What’s even better is some of their shows are free of charge! 

It’s a month-long celebration from February to March, so be sure to be on the lookout for it. This is something that you should do at least once as a teenager with your friends.

An added tip: this is one of the best places to bring your date to! So why not have a blast there and while you’re at it, show up to your date with some flowers?

2. Bask in the vast foliage of Mount Lofty Botanic Gardens

Mount Lofty Botanic Gardens

Address: 16 Lampert Rd, Crafers SA 5152, Australia

Website: https://www.botanicgardens.sa.gov.au/

Opening hours: Mon – Fri: 8:30 am – 4 pm, Sat – Sun: 9 am – 4 pm

Looking for a place to lose yourself and connect with nature? The botanic gardens in Mount Lofty is a hidden gem if you want to just enjoy some time by yourself and quietly reflect on life.

You’re young, and there’s so much to discover ahead, so this is a great time to slow down and admire nature. 

Of course, while you’re at it, check out their viewing deck where you’ll get a panoramic view of the whole place. Take a snap of it and keep it or you can share it on social media.

This is something you can do on the weekends in case you have a lot going on at school.

Just be sure that you’re physically ready to engage in this activity. May we suggest visiting a podiatrist if you want to make sure your feet are in the right condition for this adventure?

4. Go ice skating at Winter Wonderland in Glenelg

Winter Wonderland Ice Skating

Address: Moseley Square, Glenelg

Website: https://playandgo.com.au/

Price: from 17 AUD (11.9 USD) per person

*For schedules, refer to their website

It doesn’t snow in Adelaide. Bummer right? But you can have a glimpse of the winter season in Winter Wonderland at Glenelg. 

Here you can enjoy ice skating even in the middle of the year.

During July, you can visit their ice rink, learn how to ice skate, and just enjoy a good time. This is, of course, best experienced with others, so tag along a friend or two.

It would be great to cap your day off with some good food, and lucky for you, there are several great Japanese restaurants around the area.
