I enjoy writing about Adelaide and its many attractions. If you think Adelaide is boring,
the problem is not with Adelaide.

While wandering around in Adelaide I noticed a sign outside one of my favourite buildings - the quirky former Stock Exchange Building between Grenfell and Pirie Streets. The building is now used by the Royal Institution of Australia with a mission to "bring science to people and people to science", and the sign was advertising their current attraction The Incredible Inner Space Exhibition.
Having never been inside the Federation Edwardian style building with its distinctive corner tower, the dual attraction of seeing the interior and enjoying the free exhibition was too much to resist. I wasn't to be disappointed.
The focus of the exhibition is "What Lies Within", and it looks at common objects through very high powered microscopes to create beautiful photographic images for display.
Drawing upon recent research the incredibly detailed images show a diversity of intriguing subjects such as the crystal structure that identifies ancient flamingo eggs, next generation vaccine technology and the finest detail of native wood that was used by convict cabinet-makers to make historic furniture.
