What a beautiful Carousel. My 5yo and I went on it twice. It goes fast too which was fun. So beautiful with bright colours and so much history just loved looking at all the old pictures on the walls from back in the Old Days....More

Kids loved riding on the horses, had trouble getting them off at the end of the ride. No waiting time and price was right

Located near Semaphore Jetty, this is a rare attraction for all children, 2 to 92 !!! It is not open all the time so I suggest you do some research to avoid disappointment. Highly recommended !

On the foreshore at Semaphore is a strange round shed. It doesn’t look particularly interesting or inviting but if you look into the gloomy enclosure you will find a gorgeous heritage roundabout still operated by volunteers. It is so sad that it is so hidden...More

This carousel is an absolute gem! Built in 1928, it’s a reminder of years gone by. The joy of riding the carousel as a child brings great memories. Was wonderful to see my 22 month old daughter enjoy her first ride today. All money raised...More

I had a fabulous time with friends and young children recently at Semaphore! The rides were cheap and we used the free bbq and picnic tables afterwards to cook lunch. With Foodland just 100m away it made it easy to get the last minute bits...More

Beautifuly maintained amusement ride from days gone by. I remember the joy of riding on a beautiful white horse as a child. Now my children and grandchildren can all say " I remember riding the beautiful carousel at Semaphore beach.

I just love this carousel. It is just so beautiful and lovingly maintained. I always pop in for a visit when I am at Semaphore - sometimes I even jump on for a ride :)

The carousel is a great little bit of history that you can't miss if you're in the area. Plus there is a lot of other rides in the area for all ages. Had a great time here

It's not open until the warmer weather comes. Sorry I can't help you any more than that. Summer time it's open and well worth a visit.
