No need to stay home and hibernate
Winter has arrived but there's no need to stay home and hibernate this June 2023. Towards the end of the month (and throughout July), Adelaide will turn long nights into an opportunity for experiencing the city-wide spectacle Illuminate Adelaide. Our glorious Rundle Park will be the go-to destination to kickstart your experience with music, food and beverages. This includes the popular incandescent fairy floss!

Murray Bridge will be glowing too with an interactive lighting display, food vans and live music over four days. In addition, fireworks will light up the night sky on Saturday the 17th. Do come and celebrate the community's resilience, strength and unity, especially after the recent floods.

Back in Port Adelaide, Lighthouse Wharf Hotel is the place to warm up and party into the night. Winter Beer Fest will be held on Saturday the 24th and you can enjoy some dark beers, mulled cider, hot cocktails and food while listening to live acoustic and a DJ.

Or, if you prefer walking, head to Happy Valley Reservoir on Sunday the 18th to check out its new Adelaide100 trail. Both a shorter 3.5-kilometre walk and a longer 9.6-kilometre walk will be offered by Walking SA. Guided walks are also available at Belair National Park with the aim of viewing native plants that are in flower. Being at a gentle pace, this walk will allow enough time for you to take all the photos you need.

Victor Harbor celebrates the arrival of our southern right whales each year and fun thought-provoking events have been planned for Winter Whale Fest. Besides ticketed experiences, you can meet environmentalist and scientist Dr Mike Bossley, learn about the dune system and how it is being cared for, or join Kyla McHughes for a Ngarrindjeri Language workshop. Also down south are opportunities for birdwatching and nature drawing at the beautiful Deep Creek National Park.

Another celebration is happening in Whyalla - not the southern right whales, but the Australian giant cuttlefish instead! Cuttlefest will bring with it various experiences including a free talk and virtual dive at Whyalla Yacht Club as well as a free walking tour at Eight Mile Creek Beach.

And lastly, for all things bike, why not continue to escape the city and check out Melrose Fat Tyre Festival over the King's Birthday long weekend? There will be demos, displays, skills clinics, rides, live music, etc for the whole family.
