April Adelaide School Holiday Activities

Keep calm. School holidays are coming! As Adelaide cools down for Autumn and school winds up for the term, The Beachouse thought we’d help make it a little easier to find what’s on in Adelaide over the Autumn school holidays. So, here’s guide to Adelaide school holiday activities…
