Heading to the Royal Adelaide Show? This year, like every year, there’s so much to see and do; the only problem will be fitting it all in!

The Show sees some of South Australia’s best come together. And to make your day a little easier to plan, we’ve put together a couple of suggestion to make it the best Royal Adelaide Show ever!

Something for the little ones…

Entertain the kids for free with Peppa Pig and her whole family; play games, dress up and enjoy a day out on the Goyder Stage. She’s not the only one making a special visit this year, Emma and Lachy from the Wiggles will be singing and dancing the day away. Both Peppa and the Wiggles will be visiting on the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday only. The Bananas in Pyjamas will also be performing to celebrate their 25th Anniversary on Saturday September from 10am on the ABC stage. These performances alone are ideal for the younger kids, and will get them eager and excited for what else the Show has to offer.

And for those kids who are ‘selfie-crazed’ check out the ‘Walk With The Wild Exhibit,’ where anyone can take a snap with a baby croc. And for more animal encounters, check out the family favourite, the Amazing Drumming Monkeys (you’d think they’re real!) and the circus skills of Saul’s Mouse Mania in the Pet Centre!

And if that’s not enough fun for the little ones, check out the Kids’ Corner. It’s a fun area located on the Goyder Plaza, designed for pre-schoolers and young children; with an eclectic range of fun entertainment for children from 11.30am through to 5pm each day.

For those foodies, indulge in…

SA’s premier food and wine destinations! melbas-yummy-chocolatesYou can sample food and beverages from Kangaroo Island, Cocolat, Ned Kelly Wines, Coal River and more in the Goyder Food & Wine precinct. Wonder through to the Taste SA Pavilion and get your hands on some of South Australia’s finest delicacies. And why not learn some tips and tricks at the cookery displays in the Duncan Gallery – all the while drooling over some of the delicious creations. And if you’re a fan of tea, sample of the delicious varieties at the Tea Tonic stand in the Goyder Pavilion.

For those ice-cream crazed fans, why not try your hand at the Golden North Ice Cream Eating Competition! Participants need to be the first to finish a 1 litre tub of Golden North Vanilla Ice Cream – with the winner scoring a whopping $50 Ice Cream voucher. And if that wasn’t tempting in itself, the overall winner (quickest time) will win a year’s supply of Golden North Ice Cream!!

And what goes best with ice cream? If you’ve got a sweet craving, check out the Melba’s stand at the Old Ram’s Shed. You can pick up some of your favourite treats, from our famous Milk Raspberries and Milk Licorice Bullets to popular confectionery options and a range of exclusive giftware. And of course, our famous Chocolate Streamer will be oozing out our Milk Chocolate – YUM!
