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.

Visiting Arty Adelaide

9 Comments

Adelaide city isn’t really that big to walk around and discover. The CBD is bordered by North, South, East and West Terraces and the city streets are all laid out in an easy to follow grid. The city centre area is only 10.5 kmΒ² and pretty much flat to walk around. Different pockets of the city have reputations for their entertainment, restaurants, younger and older crowds, shopping strips and more. One thing that you’ll find throughout the city streets and laneways though, is sculpture and art.

On a recent visit to the city I found a few more examples to share here, of the bright and wonderful street art and murals. Most of these examples are in a north east pocket of the city and we also stumbled across a small pub tucked away in a narrow city street that not only had great food but also a full colourful mural wall.

You Know You’re From Adelaide When…

Writers Week has come and gone for another year and like last year, I took advantage of local libraries live streaming the festival and went to my local library to listen in. One of the talks I was interested in seeing was called City Series. This chat involved 8 different Australian novelists and writers who in 2011, were given the task to write about their home cities. The idea was to explain our cities, not in a guidebook way, but rather in a way that evoked intense memories and resonated deeply with others experiences of their own cities, or to give others a deep sense of what it’s like to live in our particular cities.

Lady Burra Brewhouse Adelaide

Lady Burra BrewhouseA 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.

Adelaide City – Architecture and Mall Sculptures

Adelaide ArcadeIt goes without saying that my holiday of choice is hitching up the caravan and taking to the open road, but occasionally it’s good to be a tourist in your own city and take some time to see it through different eyes.
