With Term 2 starting, and mid-year exams looming in the distance, many students will be looking for things to help them de-stress in the coming months. Although March is known as Adelaide’s busiest month, there is still much to do in and around the city. With April now in full swing, we thought we’d take a look at what’s on in Adelaide.

The Wizard of Oz is showing at the Adelaide Festival Centre. All the loved characters and iconic moments return! Come and sing along to all the classics, as well as new songs by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber.Lincoln residents have already gone along to have a look and they strongly recommend it! International student Emily Lee even got to meet Trouble and Flick, the little dogs who take turns playing Toto, thanks to animal handler Luke Hura. You can buy tickets here.

Tasting Australia has set up shop in Victoria Square, but you’ll also find them in spots around the city. Events, masterclasses, and gin tastings — there is much to see and do. But get in quickly, it all finishes up on the 22nd of April. Visit the Tasting Australia website to find out more here.
