Who doesn't want to have a wander through an hour of Hairy Maclary?
Tamara, sounds fun. I'll ask my neice if she'd like to go as she loves that sort of thing.
flossybeth, thank goodness it runs for a while as may not get to it in the holidays but perhaps once schools are back. Looks lovely.

It was a lovely exhibition although doesn't take very long to browse them all. Well, not if you have a kid in tow who isn't quite so appreciative as you are of the art work There was a short trail of pictures to follow to find the gift shop selling some books, cards, puzzles and magnets of the collection. Magnets were a good buy for $1.50 but we already have the books and didn't really want a card of the artwork. Although we may go back another day and I'll get one then when I can browse. They had free postcards, bookmarks and activity books for kids which was nice.
We ended up going all the way round the libraray including the Mortlock Wing which I adore. They also had a display for Anzac Day.
A few pics from the library. There was no photography of the actual artwork allowed, so alas no pics of those included.
I am the owner of Splodge Kids entertainment, Diagonal Road, Warradale - opposite Marion Aquatic centre (near Marion shopping centre)- just letting you all know we have just released our school holiday programme for October - I would love to meet some of my fellow Poms so have a look and say hi to me (Debbie) when you are in! http://splodge.com.au/pages/school-holidays
The Little Foodies market trail is running again in the upcoming school holidays.
Its a great way to pass a couple of hours in the city, wander Central Market, let the kids eat their haul after and then head off and do something else in or around the CBD after perhaps.
We've done it a couple of times now and will be going again in October for the trail.
Also the Little Market Chefs is running again. Proved popular last time round.

Why? Because good health starts in the kitchen!

Each class will include a small take away meal of the dish they prepare.

I've just bought our tickets for the Capri cinema again with Scoopon ($5/child, $9/adult or $25/family); I think we're intending to see The Secret Life of Pets and Pete's Dragon. We were almost sold on Miss Peregrine's House for Peculiar Children until the last seconds of the trailer, so we'll have to wait for the DVD before I get to see that one.
Scoopon also have half day surfing lessons - although if this weather doesn't let up we'll be needing to learn how to sail not surf.
[MENTION=8812]flossybeth[/MENTION] I've seen that trailer lots and wasn't sure which bit you meant. So I watched again. I get what you mean now Still want to see it in the cinema if we can. Not sure of the rating though.
