HIKING AT MORIALTA PARK

Morialta Conservation Park is easily accessible by public transportation it’s about 13 km from Adelaide City. Enjoy bushwalking, gorge scenery and waterfalls when in season. The one thing I never missed when at this place is spotting a lovely cutie Koala hanging over the tree. As you enter into the walking trail starting point she’s always there no matter what – awake or asleep! If you are upto a good grind exercise why not try bushwalking? No we are not health buffs we are just plain places and spots enthusiast. Infact, because we were too novice we chose the shorter distance and from the information above we picked the Deep View Lookout Hike. Unknowingly, this wasn’t an easy one after all. We were already ascending when we noticed that it was actually a 1.5 kilometre inclined trail all the way to the lookout and another 1.5 kilometre steep descent back...

A LONG WEEKEND IN VICTOR HARBOR

We love a long weekend for us it’s a perfect opportunity to go gallivanting somewhere. The question is where? Adelaide is on a Heatwave forecast over the weekend so we decide to go somewhere cooler. Victor Harbor fits the profile. Victor Harbor is a seaside town in South Australia, approximately 80 km from Adelaide City. Known for their horse-drawn tram that crosses the causeway to Granite Island – a penguin sanctuary. The drive to Victor Harbor will take around 1.5 hours via the South Expressway and then following Victor Harbor road for 45 kilometres. We had booked a 3D2N accommodation in one of the modern Breeze Beachfront Apartments through Unwind Holidays. It was an excellent choice, right in the heart of town, modern, well equipped, clean, comfortable with a secure parking plus ocean views. [wp_ad_camp_1] We left Adelaide around 12 noon on a Friday and stopped by McLaren Vale to see this newly...
