When Colonel Light founded Adelaide in 1836, he had a simple plan: a one square mile city centre and lots of open space. He laid out the streets in a grid, surrounded by a ring of what are now State Heritage Listed parklands accompanied by a blend of historic buildings.

Not just a city for the culture vultures, Adelaide’s wide streets are lined with iconic cafes and restaurants infused with multicultural flavours. Sports fans will love the award-winning Santos Tour Down Under, Clipsal 500 Adelaide V8 car race and a trip to the Adelaide Oval - One of the most picturesque test cricket ground in the world.

Hire a car in Adelaide and experience a journey of Wine Discovery. The Barossa Valley - around a 1 hour drive from Adelaide CBD is the ideal wine guzzling spot. The beautiful warm weather makes the area perfect for producing delicious Shiraz. The national wine centre allows visitors to witness the wine production process from beginning to end. Visitors will also be given the chance to get a taste of the extensive wine collection available.

A beauty by the beach on Great Ocean Road

Barwon Heads was next on the agenda for the Everitt clan and it was an easy 90-minute road trip from Melbourne or if you are coming along the Great Ocean Road in an Adelaide campervan rental then its only a 20-minute deviation from Geelong.
Barwon Heads is the most beautiful beachside village you are likely to see, especially in Victoria. There’s a tonne of beach for everyone to enjoy, including ocean, river and estuary – you name it, they have it. The Barwon Heads Caravan Park was built on multi-million dollar land which runs right along the river/estuary. There are  more...

Great driving holidays – DriveNow is king of the road for campervan hire

WE took advantage of the great deals offered through this super website for last minute campervan hire and did a test drive.
After an easy online booking process, and super deal thanks to the DriveNow gang, we and took one of Maui’s Jayco Conquest campervans for a spin to Adelaide. Peter and I have come to the conclusion www.drivenow.com.au offers the best way to test drive a motorhome (or campervan) without going all out and buying one up front. You know what? it’s actually better than hiring a car and staying in motels and I will even go a stretch  more...

Driving holidays – Adelaide to Warrnambool (SA)

On the road in South Australia
When leaving Adelaide behind, we headed off to our first morning tea stop in Harndorf. It’s such an awesome little town, and it’s world famous for its apple strudel. You simply cannot afford to miss this place. Harndorf is only a 90-minute drive from Adelaide. Watch the big hill heading out of Adelaide, however, as it’s a killer!
With full tummies, we cruised our way down to Robe for the night.  We stayed at the Big 4 park which is across the road from the beach –  and a great little swimming beach at that.  more...

Driving holidays – Port Augusta to Adelaide (SA)

From Port Augusta to Adelaide on the banks of the beautiful Spencer Gulf, it’s just gorgeous. It’s only a leisurely two-hour drive and all easy going, big open roads.
Port Augusta has some  unique attractions including the “spook hill” or Gravity Hill, near the Flinders Ranges where you face your car up this hill and put it in neutral and you somehow get pulled up the hill! It’s all true and is a fairdinkum optical illusion and very much worth the drive out there.
We enjoyed the the Champagne Cruise out onto the Spencer Gulf itself and went diving  more...
