Things To Do In Adelaide

6 Great Things You Can Do In Adelaide This Weekend

By Secret Adelaide

The weekend is upon us once more.

This weekend is not quite like the others. ANZAC Day lands on the Sunday, so there’s the Dawn Service, the march and commemoration ceremonies happening in towns all around the state, although you might not be able to attend. In any case, there is a bunch more things happening as well, so here are a few of our top recommendations on where to go, what to see, and what to look forward to this weekend in Adelaide.

1. See this dance double bill

Choreographers Gabrielle Nankivell and Lewis Major will be presenting their world premiere works in this double-bill special with shows on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night.
