Lobethal Things to Do
This is a delightful village for the children.
A winding trail, (children love exploring) , will take you to different cottages and fairy tales, 17 of them, all set out beautifully.
Some of them are : The 3 pigs, Goldilocks and the 3 bears, Snow White and the seven dwarfs, Little red riding hood, just to name a few.
A gift shop and kiosk is located at the village. There are also birds and kangaroos to see here.
The park is open on weekends, school & public holidays, from 10 - 5pm.
Admission in 2013 is $9.90 adults and $6.60 children.
The good website will give you a lot more information.
The Lobethal Centennial Hall is unusual, as it is built in Art Deco Style. The foundation stone was laid on 8 August in 1936 on the centenary of the proclamation of the state of South Australia
The terrazzo floor at the front of the hall was the first of its kind in South Australia, and local people bought seats for 1 pound each, to help furnish the Hall. The names are still on the back of the seats. It took 60 years to complete the building!
Black and white silent movies were first shown in the Senior Citizen's Hall from 1919, then in 1932 ‘Talkies', or black and white movies with dialogue.
If you look in the entrance, you will see the ticket box at the front of the hall and the stairs up to the projection area. The showing of movies moved from the Senior Citizen's Hall to Centennial Hall.
Centennial Hall is now run by a small, dedicated band of volunteers, who show contempory movies about every two weeks, depending on the availability of the hall.
This is the place to come, if you want to experience an old style movie theatre with old style seating, and an interval inbetween the movie.Related to:

The Lobethal Bierhaus, which I haven't been to, but another family member has, said this is a good Beer. It is only a small Brewery with accompanying cellar door tasting facilities, off-license bottle sales and a restaurant with matching beer themed foods built around local produce.
They produce award winning true hand crafted character beers. On tap is German Wheat Beer, an American style Pale Ale, an India Pale Ale, a Porter and a Pilsner with more lines being introduced in the future.
They have a Restaurant, and you can check the menu online.
