South Australian Maritime Museum - Port Adelaide
We visited the South Australian Maritime Museum yesterday for a special school holiday event. We went with a homeschool group to enjoy the play "Shipwrecked".
Despite the fact I grew up in Adelaide, I don't know the area of Port Adelaide very well at all. It was a beautiful sunny, winter day (yep, only in Adelaide) so we decided to explore the port.
We walked along the water and admired the heritage buildings and stopped at a cute little cafe' for a coffee and orange juice.
The maritime museum has a ship that the kids can explore on and play in. The boys spent most of their time playing pirates and exploring the ship before we explored the rest of the museum.
After the play we went to climb the old lighthouse which is free with your museum entry.
We also stopped to consider going on a dolphin cruise. But there was no need as the dolphins were 'playing' right beside the boat so we sat and watched them for FREE!
So, our day out at Port Adelaide was great success!
Next time we visit the area we will visit the Port Dock Train museum!
