•   Aquascene at Doctors Gully
To get close to nature, go and feed the fish at Aquascene at Doctors Gully. The fish are fed regularly and will come up close - they may even nibble your fingers.

•   East Point Reserve
At East Point Reserve there is an artificial lake, Lake Alexander, where it is possible to swim and windsurf without fear of jellyfish or crocodiles. Towards evening, friendly wallabies come out to graze. There is also an easy 1.5 kilometre boardwalk through coastal monsoon and spectacular mangrove forests, with wheelchair access.

•   Adelaide River Jumping Crocodile Cruise
Children will love the exciting show put on by the wild crocodiles of the Adelaide River. Watch the crocodiles as they slide in from the banks of the river, barely making a ripple in the water, then leap into the air to seize their prey as it is held out from the boat. It is a truly amazing sight.

•   Barramundi Fishing Park
Your kids will love the challenge of catching their very own fish. Take a trip to the Barramundi Fishing Farm where expert help is on hand and you are guaranteed a catch.

•   Australian Aviation Heritage Centre
