North Adelaide sights to see

Can't think of what to do in Adelaide on the weekend? Every Friday we'll provide you with a "Friday Fantastic" idea!

North Adelaide, a wee little trip north of Adelaide City Centre, holds many great attractions.  Places to shop, restaurants, cafes, pubs.  The places to see are many, but here are a few suggestions:

North Adelaide Pub Crawl

There are a lot of heritage listed pubs and they are all amazing.

For the crawl, first find the big church.  You'll know it when you see it.  It is the St Peter's Cathedral.  Look across the road and you'll see the Cathedral Hotel.  Here is a nice starting point.

From here, take a walk north towards the next pub.  Repeat this step after a few drinks at each hotel.  After your legs can no longer walk you to the next pub north, walk towards the nearest cab to take you home.

North Adelaide Restaurants

There is fine dining located in numerous locations.  You pretty much cannot go wrong, with restaurants of several different types from Aussie food to Indian.

North Adelaide is known for its posh nights out with any restaurant located down O'Connell St a great place for a romantic night out or a family feast.  You can even trot towards the end of the main street for an ice cream after dinner.

North Adelaide Movies

Haven't seen a movie for while out on the big screen?  Well, after your dinner, why not catch a flick at the Wallis North Adelaide Cinema?

They play all the latest that the kids are into these days, as well as all the blockbusters.  Don't forget them new fan-dangled 3D moving picture thingies.  They are great!

These are but a few things to pass your weekend away.  Just get out there and do whatever you want!

But why not visit North Adelaide this weekend.  Whatever you do, be sure to let us know how your weekend went!

Wang Wang and Funi

Can't think of what to do in Adelaide on the weekend? Every Friday we'll provide you with a "Friday Fantastic" idea!

Do you love Pandas? Of course you do, they are awesome.  Here you can see a Panda on a rocking horse.

Brilliant, right?

Adelaide's Pandas Wang-Wang and Funi may not necessarily be as awesome as this fellow, but they are definitely one of Adelaide's current big attractions.

The Adelaide Zoo has completed their construction for the Panda Exhibit. The Panda's have been ready for visitors for a while now, so if you haven't said hello to these two yet, this weekend is a great opportunity! The Zoo runs Panda Tours if you are extra keen on the full Panda experience.

Don't forget all the other fantastic creatures the Zoo has to offer too, so why not make a day of it?

Send us your Adelaide Zoo photos via Twitter or email  We'd love what you've got!.

Have a great weekend, what ever you do.
