The very successful annual July school holiday event, held at the National Railway Museum (NRM) Port Adelaide, the Family Fun Fair has been entertaining young children and families for almost 30 years.

NRM Executive Officer Bob Sampson said: “It’s such a delight to see the excitement and enjoyment on the faces of all the children who visit our school holiday event.”

“There is no doubt that all of the kid’s entertainment and especially the steam train rides around our huge site represent great family value for money” he added.

Attractions include Australian wildlife in the Animals Anonymous tent, Dig A Dino dinosaur bone game, the Carnival Barrel Organ and the wonderful Cool for Kids song and dance team.

A large model railway display, a theatrette, displays and exhibitions in addition to various carriages to explore makes for a great visit for all ages.  There will be plenty of different catering choices also on site during the 4 days.

Admission fees (including all entertainment and steam train rides) are:

Family (2 adults and up to 3 children) - $36 Adult - $14 Concession - $11 Child (5 – 15 years) - $6
