If you are thinking of taking a drive over the weekend, head to the beautiful Adelaide Hills for a feast for the senses. The trees are ablaze with glorious colour and breathing the fresh, crisp air makes for a wonderful experience.
I spent a delightful morning driving to Piccadilly, where we stopped for coffee and treats at a new little cafe on the side of the road. The cafe's owner, Bev, has the gift of making one feel welcome, so pop in and say hello (open Fridays only).
Then on to Stirling, passing Pomona Road, which is known as one of the sites of the devastating 1983 Ash Wednesday fires. Pomina Road is ablaze again, this time in the golds, reds, yellows and browns of autumn. A photographers and artists paradise!
Ah, Stirling, which still retains the village atmosphere of little shops and eateries, has tree-lined streets and a park in the main road where one can relax, take a picnic, give the kids space to play or you could choose from the wide variety of first class restaurants all around.
I would highly recommend that you jump into your car over the next few weeks and experience the beauty of the Adelaide Hills, South Australia.
