Tumby Bay ~ So Nice, We Visited Twice

6 Comments

On our tour around Eyre Peninsula we took a detour to make sure we didn’t miss illuminate Tumby, before resuming our itinerary back on the other side of the peninsula’s coast.

Tumby Bay had so much going for it that we were definitely stopping in again on our way back, to see more of what this town has to offer. The best place to start, is with the drive into town, making sure you pull in to the parking area near the town’s painted silos.

Illuminate Tumby Bay

3 Comments

If there is one town for art fans to head to on Eyre Peninsula, it has to be Tumby Bay.
In March of every year, since 2018, they hold the Colour Tumby Festival, where street artists decorate and liven up spaces around town, turning them from bare walls into bright works of art.

Tumby has been on my radar for years to visit for this purpose and to make it extra special, this year the town also participated in Illuminate Tumby, part of the illuminate Adelaide festival.

Alice Springs Street Art

6 Comments

It’s my thing! I’m just in awe of the talent of artists who can create these large scale paintings in cities and towns around Australia, so now I seek them out wherever we travel.  From disused grain silos and water towers in rural areas to busy city streets and laneways there are incredible works of art being brought to the people.

Alice Springs in central Australia, is halfway between Adelaide and Darwin and has a population of more than 26,000. It is a tourism draw for its captivating desert landscapes and strong aboriginal culture and indigenous art which can be seen on country and in galleries. Now included in that I would add making time to discover the street art.

South Melbourne Market

thumbnail_IMG_3993Markets, whether small country town outdoor ones or big city permanent fixtures, are always something I like to seek out for a number of reasons. They can be quite a tourist attraction in their own right, with all the sights, colours and aromas and they give you a true feel for the region and its people. They are of course also a fantastic source for fresh fruit, vegetables, cheese, seafood and meats. The atmosphere is always busy and buzzing with life which is something we’ve all missed for the past year, so it’s nice to feel some of that normal society busy life again. View the pictures →
