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

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 km² 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.
