For generations, d’Arenberg winery has been an icon and shining example of the Mclaren Vale wine region. It has a rich history and boasts a proud tradition of family based business, whilst continuing to push the envelope and be a pioneer in modern-day wine making. The “d’Arry’s Verandah” restaurant has quite the stellar reputation; and this week I was ableContinue Reading

Breathe Events; The Ultimate Outdoor Yoga Experience

  When I read about the Breathe Events ‘Breathe In the Vines’ shindig: I saw outdoor yoga: “Okaaaaay…..” I saw Fox Creek Winery: “I’m listening…..” I saw From Humble Grounds Coffee: “Tell me more…..” I saw Picnic (with wine): “SOLD!”   With a slightly more sporting and weight lifting background; I’m about as flexible as a concrete slab. So IContinue Reading

Aldinga: Fridays After Five

In the Spring and Summer time, Old Coach Road in Aldinga comes alive! Fridays after Five is a new favourite way to spend a Friday evening.   Similar to a city Laneway Bar, Fridays After Five utilises the space between Maxwell’s Grocery and Homegrain Bakery to create a groovy, chilled out party vibe. (damn straight; I said ‘groovy’!)   Tucked inContinue Reading

Nestled between the hills and coastline in Second Valley, is Leonards Mill; and boy is it a cracker!   As the name suggests, Leonards Mill is a historic flour mill which has been lovingly and thoughtfully restored into many things. Aside from the multi award-winning restaurant, the property is home to cottage style accommodation, a bar, function centre, and artContinue Reading

Deep Creek Conservation Park

For many years I have been visiting the Deep Creek Conservation Park. Whether it be for camping, picnics, or a day hiking the many walking trails, Deep Creek is so beautiful and well preserved, I always leave feeling great.   In this technology driven over-loading and over-sharing world of ours; sometimes it’s nice to take a step back and enjoyContinue Reading

Maudie & Fox

I was first introduced to Maudie & Fox in Normanville when I attended a Wildfire Organic Tea blending workshop at the store.   Before the workshop I had a sneaky-peek around, and was in awe of all the treasures inside! Everything in the store is personally selected by the lovely owner Bridgette, who clearly puts a lot of time andContinue Reading

21 Junk Street

Through nothing more than the power of social media, I stumbled across 21 Junk Street, in Yankalilla.   21 Junk Street comes in two parts; The vintage “Junk” shop at the back, and the Cafe at the front.   The cafe is fitted out with a mix of new modern and old vintage…. Mostly vintage. Hand-picked vintage furniture and decorativeContinue Reading

Wildfire Organic Tea

I recently had the pleasure of attending a Wildfire Organic Tea Blending Workshop, hosted by the lovely Jane Burke. It was held at the gorgeous little store ‘Maudie and Fox’, in Normanville South Australia.   In a small, intimate and friendly setting, we sat down to a table filled with magical bowls full of tea leaves, herbs, flowers and spices.Continue Reading

Urimbirra Wildlife Park

Animals make me happy, therefore, so does Urimbirra Wildlife Park.   Urimbirra is a free-range style wildlife park, on the outskirts of Victor Harbor town. Set with sweeping lawns, and overhanging gum trees, you can roam the park and make loads of new furry friends….. The animals are of course very tame, and if you’re carrying a bag of feed,Continue Reading

Port Elliot Town

I Looooove Port Elliot. It’s a township that has it all. It’s coastal, country, friendly, and has a mix of traditional and trendy, with its cool little shops and cafes. A perfect day out for me consists of hitting the beaches for a wave or two, fishing in Horseshoe Bay, and wandering through the main streets of town for someContinue Reading
