A microbrewery in the heart of the city has to be a good thing especially when the brews are complemented with great food with a Portuguese twist. The venue is called Lady Burra Brewhouse and its popularity is still high four years on from when it first opened in Topham Mall Adelaide, the first brewery in the CBD.
The nature of street art or urban art is that it always seems to be added to or changed altogether so with every visit into the city centre I try to visit streets and laneways I haven’t looked at before to find something new. On a recent visit to Adelaide I managed to find a few that were new to me but not necessarily new to the city.

A travelling light show is making its way around coastal regions in South Australia, connecting communities through a massive light show which is being projected onto everything from silos to sheds, town halls, a lighthouse and even a ship.

One of the most iconic road trips in Australia is the Great Ocean Road in Victoria and September 19th this year marks 100 years from the day that commencement of its construction began. One of the most unique things about this epic drive is that it’s the world’s largest war memorial, built by returned World War 1 servicemen. It’s one of those road trips in Australia that is on everyone’s ‘one day’ list and I finally got around to driving this way in April this year.
Whether you are a follower of Australian Rules Football (AFL) or not there’s no escaping the hype as the AFL finals season comes around.
