Adelaide Aquatics Centre
You’ll find this swimming and leisure centre just a short 15 minute drive away in the parklands at North Adelaide. The Centre offers a 50 metre lap pool, diving pool and two heated leisure pools, complete with water slides and features. It is a great place to cool off and escape the summer heat.
The perfect blend of style and sophistication without the brashness of a big city. Explore Adelaide’s famous cultural heart – North Terrace, showcasing the Art Gallery, Museum and the Adelaide Casino. With a short stroll take in the River Torrens, the Adelaide Zoo and Festival Centre.
A 30 minute drive from Brownhill Creek Tourist Park and you will be in the heart of the idyllic Adelaide Hills. A very easy drive, up the South Eastern Freeway, takes you to the quaint historic German village of Hahndorf; boasting a smorgasbord of home-made pastries, preserves and authentic German food, with its main street lined with craft shops. The Adelaide Hills make for an enchanting touring experience.
Take a leisurely 15 minute walk along the River Torrens Linear Park walking trail and jump on the O-Bahn to explore the City of Adelaide.
The O-Bahn is the world’s longest guided bus way and offers the fastest suburban bus service, it runs from the City Centre to Tea Tree Plaza.
Opened to the public in 1883, the Adelaide Zoo is one of South Australia’s most iconic attractions; it’s home to more than 2,500 animals and 250 species of exotic and native mammals, birds, reptiles and fish exhibited over eight hectares of magnificent botanic surroundings.
The zoo is also now home to Wang Wang and Funi, two Giant Pandas. Other exhibits include the Immersion South East Asian Rainforest, Seal Bay, Australian Rainforest Wetlands walk-through aviary, Nocturnal & Reptile Houses.
Australia’s world famous wine capital features more than 80 winery cellar doors, less than two hours’ drive from Adelaide. The success of the wine industry has historically been celebrated every two years with the week-long Barossa Valley Vintage Festival. The festival draws visitors from all over the world and has entertainment for all tastes including a huge street parade, concerts and gourmet dining.
Geoff Heath Par 3 Golf Course
On the opposite side of the River Torrens in Lochiel Park (a brief 15-20 minute walk with your golf clubs) lies arguably Adelaide’s ‘best kept secret’. This course provides sufficient challenge to interest the experienced player but at the same time is not intimidating to beginners and recreational players. Why not try Night Golf from 6:00pm on Fridays, with a glow in the dark golf ball!
