The Learning Centre

Always a family favourite, this year the Learning Centre is an interactive and informative area where young people and their parents or caregivers can have fun and learn about agriculture and public education in a safe and supervised environment.

Enjoy a range of daily hands-on activities and demonstrations that invite visitors to learn through looking, listening and touching:

  • Hold baby animals
  • Watch sheep shearing, cow milking and baby animal feeding demonstrations
  • Science busking and hands-on interactive science activities
  • Fun, interactive health and physical education come and try activities
  • Learn about the new Adelaide Botanic High School

The Learning Centre is a part of the 2017 BankSA #Agsplorers Track.  

The Old Ram Shed

The Old Ram Shed presents an educational and entertaining display of South Australia’s pioneering history.

There will be the regular features; including regular shearing displays; the SA Farriers & Blacksmiths Association working in the fully operational 1800’s Blacksmith shop; the Handspinners & Weavers Guild and tasty treats from Melba’s Chocolates.

Kids’ Model Boat Building Workshop is back for its eighth year.  Children can sit and build their own wooden boat and then have the unique experience of launching it in the ‘Great Deep’ with a great amount of pride and joy. At the other end of the scale, there will be displays and models of boats that have and still work the great Murray River.
