The School Holiday Mountain Bike Geocache Adventure is an exciting, healthy, outdoor school holiday activity and the perfect way to enjoy Adelaide’s great outdoors! Participants will learn new riding skills then put them to use while hunting for geocaches and hidden clues around the Craigburn Farm trails in the Sturt Gorge Recreation Park.
The mountain bike geocache adventure begins with a basic skills coaching session to teach participants the fundamental skills of mountain biking. We cover topics such as:
* Braking technique
* Gear selection
* Body position & moving on the bike
Our coaches will also provide other handy tips to help ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all.
Once everybody is comfortable and settled on the bikes, the adventure begins! A series of geocaches containing cleverly constructed cryptic clues are hidden all over the Craigburn Farm trail network. Participants work as a team using good old maps (not google-maps!) to find and decipher each clue, which hints to the next geocaches secret location and the best trail to get there. Participants will cover over 12 kilometres of trail and climb around 300 vertical meters during their adventure.
Participants don’t need mountain biking experience for this program, however they must be able to ride a bike on two wheels confidently and with good control.

WIPCE is the largest, most diverse Indigenous education forum in the world, bringing together delegates to share strategies for culturally grounded education.
An estimated 370 million Indigenous peoples live in all continents of the earth and represent a significant part of the world’s vast cultural and linguistic diversity and heritage.
Indigenous peoples possess unique knowledge systems, which are recognised as crucial for sustainable development. At the same time, social, economic and political marginalisation of Indigenous peoples is pervasive in all the regions across the world.
Indigenous peoples face fundamental challenges when attempting to reconcile their own forms of culturally transmitted learning with systems of formal education. Over the past 30 years, WIPCE has endeavoured to address this issue and has grown to become a major international event in the Indigenous education movement. The WIPCE conference draws Indigenous representatives from across the globe to share successes and strategies for culturally grounded education. The needs of young Indigenous educators and leaders will be a key feature of WIPCE 2022 youth forums. WIPCE attracts Indigenous education experts, practitioners, scholars, students and communities, with up to 5,000 delegates expected in 2022 – the largest and most diverse Indigenous education forum on earth.

The inaugural AFLW Showdown I is coming to Adelaide Oval under lights this September.
It’s the perfect family night out, with tickets starting at just $10 for adults, and kids under the age of 18 are FREE.
It’s no question that the pre-existing rivalry between the two clubs is the best in the AFL and extending that into the AFLW for the first time is incredibly exciting.
But this game is going to be about something far bigger than just football, it will also be an iconic celebration of women in sport.
AFLW Showdown I, 7:30pm, Friday, September 30 at Adelaide Oval.
