Leafy Stirling in the picturesque Adelaide Hills will be transformed into a festival of cycling for a massive five-lap stage finish for the Santos Tour Down Under.
Be entertained, eat delicious local produce, browse the local shops and famous Stirling Market, and of course take in one of the most significant
events on the South Australian calendar. With pro-tour cyclists taking on steep inclines, speedy descents and flat sprints, our beautiful Hills are set to be showcased to an international audience.
Before the pro-cyclists spin through the town, finishing the stage with five thrilling laps around Heathfield, Bradbury, Mylor and Stirling, there will be much to see, do, make and win at Stirling Spin!
The Wheelie Big Caterpillar!
Take some time out on the green, green grass of the Coventry Library Lawns that have been feeding the weird and wondrous Wheelie Big Caterpillar! Join local Adelaide artist Jemimah Dodd to bring the Wheelie Big Caterpillar to life with bursts of your own creative colour. Anyone can join in, from kids to kids-at-heart.
Bike Box Build
Another activity for the crafty young folk, the Bike Box Build is simply oodles of boxes and cardboard combined with the powers of your imagination. Make, create, build and play!
