You had me at parachuting cats. That was enough of a weird and wonderful idea to get me to visit Mod Museum in Adelaide, a unique science and technology museum at the University of South Australia.

This incredible concept showcases how research shapes our understanding of the world and affects our future, it’s a very hands on place with plenty of interactive displays and is the only public science and creativity space in South Australia.

Creating Your Own Illuminate Adelaide

7 Comments

Don’t you hate it when your best laid plans get blown away thanks to the weather!

That’s what happened when an evening planned in Adelaide for the opening night of Illuminate Adelaide was gone with the wind. This winter festival in the city, lights up the streets, laneways and prominent buildings around town for two weeks with the opening night meant to be Friday 16th of July.

However, the wild wintry weather had other ideas and the opening night was postponed thanks to wild winds and heavy rain predicted for the Friday night.

Alice Springs Street Art

6 Comments

It’s my thing! I’m just in awe of the talent of artists who can create these large scale paintings in cities and towns around Australia, so now I seek them out wherever we travel.  From disused grain silos and water towers in rural areas to busy city streets and laneways there are incredible works of art being brought to the people.

Alice Springs in central Australia, is halfway between Adelaide and Darwin and has a population of more than 26,000. It is a tourism draw for its captivating desert landscapes and strong aboriginal culture and indigenous art which can be seen on country and in galleries. Now included in that I would add making time to discover the street art.

Mindl Beach Sunset Market – Darwin

2 Comments

No trip to Darwin in the dry season would be complete without an evening at the Mindl Beach Market.

These markets have now been running for more than 30 years and are held every Thursday and Sunday from the end of April through to the end of October every year. Thursday is usually the bigger night with Sunday being a smaller market and usually patronised more by the locals.

Remember My Story – State Library Collection

6 Comments

Last year during the initial stages of Covid-19 restrictions and lock downs, our State Library of South Australia called for photos from the public, for the purpose of recording this historical moment in time.

I submitted a few photos of the changes that I noticed around me in my local area, little knowing that all this time later the world would still be so affected by this pandemic.

Darwin Street Art

13 Comments

Everyone is heading to northern Australia at this time of year, escaping the cold wintery conditions of the south, and this year in particular there are more people than ever travelling.

I’ve written a recent piece for CamperMate on the journey north which is dubbed, The Explorers Way, which you can read about here. For interest sake I did a tally as we were travelling for part of the trip and in just a one hour section of the journey, I counted 92 caravans / camper trailers / holiday makers heading north! I can certainly see the appeal and even though it seems extremely busy, there are plenty of free camping options and road side parking areas to enjoy the trip.
