Picnicking in Adelaide
Pretty Adelaide and its surrounds offer no shortage of great picnic spots. For a seaside outing, try the copious grass or sand along the Semaphore shoreline. There is also a 7.5-kilometre bike and pedestrian path. In the Adelaide Hills, the 97-hectare Mount Lofty Botanic Garden has several great walking trails, quiet spots and views. About 30 per cent of the garden is still native bushland.
Adventurous kids will love the award-winning adventure playground at St Kilda, 20 kilometres north of the CBD, with giant slides, flying foxes, climbing structures, a pirate ship and a maze of tunnels. There are coin-operated barbecues.
