Elliston – Sculptures, Art and a Salmon Fishing Competition

8 Comments

The Eyre Peninsula odyssey continues and we settle in Elliston for a couple of nights to see some cliff top sculptures that I’d been dying to see and continue our quest for salmon fishing.

Feeling good about the prospects of catching more, Harry decided to enter the competition, at worst it would be a $10 donation and at best there was prize money to win.

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.

Darwin Street Art

13 Comments

Everyone is heading to northern Australia at this time of year, escaping the cold wintery conditions of the south, and this year in particular there are more people than ever travelling.

I’ve written a recent piece for CamperMate on the journey north which is dubbed, The Explorers Way, which you can read about here. For interest sake I did a tally as we were travelling for part of the trip and in just a one hour section of the journey, I counted 92 caravans / camper trailers / holiday makers heading north! I can certainly see the appeal and even though it seems extremely busy, there are plenty of free camping options and road side parking areas to enjoy the trip.

There’s a bright and brilliant new mural to look for in Goolwa when you’re next visiting the Fleurieu Peninsula. As you drive into town on Alexandrina Road you’ll find Kessell Street on the right and the Ibis Siding Garden Centre on the corner. Turning into Kessell Street, the eye catching mural featuring a blue wren, bees and flowers, fills the wall of the garden centre.
