Thai Days ~New Dining in Goolwa

7 Comments

My home town of Goolwa is already pretty spoilt for choice when it comes to dining options from main street cafes, two hotels, wharf side, river and beach front venues and now I can confirm there is another must try to add to your list. An authentic Thai restaurant, Thai Days has opened in the main thoroughfare, Cadell Street, and it’s an absolute winner.

They had a few teething problems to start with, renovations of the shop taking longer to complete than first expected and then opening night had to be cancelled due to an equipment malfunction but it is up and running now, and it was worth the wait.

This is a venue I’ve been wanting to try for a while, it has a great reputation and every time I’ve passed by, there is always a busy car park, a sure sign to me that a place is worth visiting.

A Fun and Colourful Aussie Christmas

One thing I always look forward to at Christmas time in Australia is seeing what creative and clever decorations everyone puts up and each year there seems to be more of an effort, maybe especially in 2020 because we are all looking for a cheerful note to end the year on.  The effort put in seems to be at another level in the rural areas in particular I find.
