Adelaide, otherwise labelled...
Adelaide, otherwise labelled the 'City of Churches' is a very quiet little town.
There are some pretty gardens and parks. Some of the Churches are pretty to look at however I think the prettier churches are in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney and these are the Big Cathedrals!
Welcome to Kaurna Land
The Kaurna (which is pronounced GAR-na) people are the traditional owners and custodians of the Adelaide plalins. As is the case throughout Australia, the aboriginal past is not far beneath the surface of everyday life. The original peoples of the continent have a presence and influence on the culture and history of this great land.
Adelaide is a perfect place to learn more about the Kaurna people and the Australian aboriginal people(s). Among the better places to examine the culture of these peoples is the South Australia Museum, over on North Terrace.
a guide to the bay (clubs'n'pubs)
Glenelg goes off on a fri/saturday night.
head to the pier... (turn right at the jetty and keep walking) for the classy/funk/club/restraunt hub... or just stick to good old jetty rd to witness many-a-drunken antic. The Best pubs are the dubin, jetty bar and the backpackers... although the grand is pretty fab before dark, after sunset, the grand turns into the most popular club... but the jetty bar and the backpackers are worth a go.
P.S. Never ever ever ever come in winter... it's v. cold and rather boring.
P.P.S. new years is crazy- plenty of ferals (see pic.) but plenty of fun.
Onkaparinga Estuary is located between Port Noarlunga and Old Noarlunga, located within Onkaparinga River Recreation Park. The "Pingle Farm track" gives you an idea of what the area was like before it became urban sprawl. There is an abandoned farm property built in 1862, given that most of it is in ruins I am surprised to learn that it was occupied until the 1970's.
The track forms a loop and you can choose a short or a longer route depending on the time available and physical condition. It is mostly level ground with well defined paths.
The track can be started from Commercial Road or Sauerbiers Road in the suburb of Seaford Meadows.
Escape to Bombay
Rikki Tikki Tavi
Polished floor boards, exposed bluestone walls, an open fire, state of the art music video juke box system, tigers, elephants, cobras and of course bikes! The Rikki Tikki Tavi Bar is a great place to meet up with friends and when we were there this past Saturday night, the band Atomic Voodoo was playing some great rock and top 40 hits! With 100 international beers by the bottle and nine beers on tap you can watch staff at work in the exposed, fully operational keg room. This place is great for a night out! Next time we'll go for dinner at their Gungadins Restaurant.
