Pretty in Pink – South Australian Salt Lakes

5 Comments

If you’ve ever seen photos on social media and tourism advertising of incredible looking bubble gum pink coloured lakes, you may think a fair bit of photo manipulation has happened, but it is possible to see these lakes with your own eyes and no filters required, in South Australia.

9 Comments

I’m gradually getting around to visiting as many painted silos and water towers around the country as I can, and added to that are the many, many brilliant examples of street art and murals in towns across Australia.

Here are a few of the incredible silos to look for as you travel in South Australia.

Cleaning Up Our Beaches

16 Comments

Like most Australians, many of our holidays are spent by the coast and we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to beautiful beaches and spectacular coastline in Australia. Whether you spend time in the water or simply taking a stroll along the beach it sadly doesn’t take long to find some rubbish.

Kimbolton – Sipping in Shipping Containers

2 Comments

Nestled unobtrusively amongst a stand of gum trees in Langhorne Creek with views of the family vineyard is the surprisingly spacious, shipping container cellar door of Kimbolton Wines.

The wines have been produced by the Kimbolton label since 1998 and today the 5th generation of wine makers are adding a modern stamp to the brand, not the least with this quirky cellar door which was opened in 2018.

Finding the Fun Everyday

3 Comments

Now more than ever, finding the fun every day is a great way to relieve the worry, gloom and doom that we can’t escape sometimes.

Taking a slow holiday, like caravanning is an easy way to be in the present and take in the little things around you, making you grateful for where you live and what you have.

I find it’s easy to notice the funny and quirky aspects travelling this way and especially when you carry a camera, the weird and wonderful, the funny signs and things that just bring a smile to your face and a bit of fun in your day just seem to jump out at you. Here are some of the things that made us chuckle on our last road trip.

The SA Town being Engulfed by Sand Dunes

6 Comments

ABC News Australia has a story today on the town of Fowlers Bay on the far west coast of South Australia, which is slowly being engulfed by the sand dunes on its doorstep. We were there not long ago and you could see how these magnificent huge dunes are encroaching. To see the full ABC story I’ve included the link at the end of this post.

This story made me go back into the many, many old photo albums I have, to see if there were any noticeable differences from way back when we used to visit and camp in this area in the 1980s, compared to our visit just last month.
