Travel to Adelaide and enjoy the city with your daughter. There are so many wonderful opportunities for mothers and daughters to discover gems of the city together. Choose one or two activities or spend a weekend in Adelaide and do them all!
Get your hair done
Toni and Guy is a sleek and modern salon in North Adelaide, on O'Connell Street. This is the place to go whether you want a completely different style or something more simple such as a beautiful wavy up-do or some highlights.
In Style magazine stated some of the best hair salons in Adelaide include Axia Hairdressers, Daly Barber, Hair Machine and Parlour Hair.
Enjoy high tea
For lunch or afternoon tea, high tea is a wonderful option. Stamford Hotels and Resorts offers a heavenly high tea option, which is $29 per person. On a three tier stand you will receive plain and fruit scones with jam and cream, mini French pastries with assorted fruit flans and strawberry waffles, ribbon sandwiches, mini quiches and the Stamford Signature curry puffs. You can enjoy a glass of sparkling wine while your daughter sips on a freshly brewed tea or coffee – unless your daughter is old enough to partake in a glass of wine! This could be a great activity for you and your grown up daughter.
Other places that provide charming high tea options include The Brasserie, Intercontinental Adelaide, Just Ticked Pink tea rooms and The Boho Bar.
