State Kart Championships - Round 5

Head to the Monarto Karting Complex for the Go Karts South Australia State Kart Championships – Round 5.

The Go Kart Club of South Australia (GKCSA) was founded in 1961. Racing originally took place every Saturday (under lights) at Daly Oval, Campbelltown. Twelve months later, owing to popularity and growing numbers of competitors, and problems with associated noise, the GKCSA merged with the Onkaparinga Go Kart Club. This merger allowed for further expansion of the club and the start of its long association with the Adelaide Hills community. The land was donated to the council by Pikes' drinks for the purpose of sport.

All race meetings are free entry for spectators so bring the family and check out the excitement, spectacle and adrenaline rush of Go Kart Racing at South Australia's largest karting complex.

This event has been listed by the Rural City of Murray Bridge.

A road trip comedy 80,000 years in the making.

Tash and her Dad are going on a road trip. Home to country, where the sky is higher and the world goes on forever.

It’s a long way from the wide streets and big old houses of Tash’s childhood. Two Black faces in a very white suburb. Dad still thinks he’s the king of cool, but he’s an old fella now. It’s time for Tash to take him home.

ILBIJERRI Theatre Company tells stories about what it means to be Indigenous in Australia today. Infused with humour and heart WHICH WAY HOME draws on writer Katie Beckett’s own memories of growing up with her single Aboriginal father.
