What to tick off your list before we hit Autumn
At the start of summer I sat down and wrote a list of what I wanted to do. The sun always invites us to head out and experience Adelaide and see what it has to offer. With a month left here is my list of some things I had on my bucket list that I have ticket off and still need to tick off.

Check out a garden centre

There are plenty of amazing garden centres around SA, I love to walk around and look at all the plants and home decor and some have an attached café/ restaurant you can sit and enjoy a coffee and lunch.

My favourites are:
Vadoulis Garden Centre - 560 Main N Rd, Evanston SA 5118
Newmans Nursery - 1361 North East Road, Tea Tree Gully SA 5097
Virginia Garden Centre - Gawler Rd, Virginia SA 5120
Norwood Garden Centre - 299 Portrush Rd, Norwood SA 5067

Have A BBQ
Nothing like having an Aussie BBQ, invite some friends over, grab yourself some beers or wine and enjoy a summer dinner.

See a summer sunset
Make sure you head down the Adelaide beaches as many times as you can.

My favourites are:
Largs Bay
Henley Beach

Sunset at Largs Bay

Feed the ducks
I love feeding the ducks, it's relaxing and I defiantly don't do it enough. My favourite place to feed the ducks is Rymill Park in the City. Make sure you feed the ducks the correct food, i like to feed them bird seed, corn or rice.

Take a picture in front of some wall art

The fringe has filled the city and suburbs with amazing wall art so grab yourself a street art guide you can find on the fringe website and take a stroll around the city and surroundings and check out the amazing artwork.

Get scroll ice cream or frozen yoghurt

The summer heat is the perfect time to try scroll ice-cream from the shop on 35 York St, Adelaide or my favourite frozen yoghurt.
My favourite shops are:
Fruizberry - 42-46 Jetty Rd, Glenelg
Tangerines Frozen Yogurt Bar - 177/193 The Parade, Norwood
Tutti Frutti Frozen Yoghurt Shop - Westfield Tea Tree Plaza, 976 North East Road, Modbury

Go to a beach you've never been before

There are plenty of beaches I have not been to, on my list to go is Moana, Port Noarlunga and Second Valley.

Have a cocktail at a bar
Try out the Collins Bar in the Hilton, the Moseley in Glenelg or 2KW In the City

Go to the Fruchocs factory shop
Support SA and grab yourself some Menz Fruchocs from their factory store on 71 Glynburn Rd, Glynde or from their stores in Hahndorf, McLaren vale or any shopping centre. These are defiantly my favourite treat and if you want to get creative there is plenty of Fruchocs recipes you can find online.

Check out a cellar door

On my list are:
Banrock Station Wine and Wetland Centre - Holmes Rd, Kingston on Murray
K1 by Geoff Hardy Cellar Door - 159 Tynan Rd, Kuitpo
Penfolds Magill Estate Cellar Door - 78 Penfold Rd, Magill SA 5072
