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

Most of us don't need an excuse to head over to scenic Yorke Peninsular, and we flock over there in droves every long weekend to enjoy the unspoiled beaches, quaint towns, and historical places to explore.
But on November 3-4 there will be another reason to visit Moonta, with the annual Moonta Antiques and Collectibles Fair happening at two venues in town over the weekend. Local shops will be joined by dealers from around the state to present a great variety of antiques and collectibles for you to browse and buy.
The Fair venues this year are the Moonta Area School Gymnasium, Blanche Terrace, Moonta and Moonta Town Hall, George Street, Moonta. Due to the size of the town it will be easy to move from one venue to the other on a complimentary train ride, and the admission of $5 will cover entry to both places.
If you have any oddities that you think may be worth something, bring them along for a valuer to appraise at a small cost.
I always find country towns to be a rich source of bric-a-brac, as households away from the metro area tend to hang on to things a lot longer before disposing of them. Rural areas are particularly rich in this way, as they have more room and old sheds to store their unwanted goodies.
So pack your swimming gear, fishing rod, or surfboard as well as your wallet (and a trailer to bring goodies back), and take a trip over for another relaxing country weekend combined with a bit of shopping.
