I’m Belinda from Gallivanting Oz and I’d love you to come along and share one of our latest adventures as we explore the magnificent Eyre Peninsula in South Australia.
As our plane circles down into Adelaide on a typically clear and balmy autumn evening, we are greeted by the twinkling city lights and the wonderful tingle of anticipation for the week of adventure ahead. Although we’ve been lucky enough to spend lots of time exploring all corners of Australia, that tingle is still always there. Little did we know at the time, it would be our last trip anywhere for a wee while, with the Covid-19 lockdown hitting us shortly afterwards!
It’s good to be back; we love Adelaide! This small, wonderfully multicultural city always feels distinctly different to other cities in Australia, and it loves to do things its own way. Centred around picturesque parkland, Adelaide has pretty beaches on one side, the lush and arty Adelaide Hills on the other, and is a short drive to some of Australia’s best wine country! It’s a very easy place to fall in love with. To squeeze in as much as possible, we have opted to spend our first night in the city to enjoy Adelaide’s vibrant but relaxed atmosphere … not to mention a nice glass of Barossa red and dinner at Shobosho, the Asian barbecue restaurant which has been causing quite a buzz of late! (PS: note for fellow foodies out there, it stood up to the hype!)
