Australia is a country that has so much to offer to the curious traveler. From life changing experiences to nature to lifestyle to adventure, the country is definitely one of the most appealing and the most interesting places to visit and live in. If you happen to be travelling to Southwestern Australia this summer or winter vacation, here are a few places that you really need to see for yourself.
The central market
Is this a tourist attraction or a shopping venue or maybe it is a bit of both. Anyway that you take it, the central market here comes with more than two hundred and fifty food stalls that serve up some seriously great eats. The Mettwurst shop has some great salami and the Smelly Cheese Shop whips up a great English Stilton. The Yoghurt Shop here serves delicious and refreshing blueberry yoghurt and what’s more? The China Town here is just next door. You can even ask for a guided trip of the place if you really want to not miss any of the highlights. The easiest way to get here would be to catch some of the outback tours from Adelaide that are commonly available.
The world’s prettiest cricket ground
The Oval is thought of as the most beautiful cricket ground in the world. You can easily get down here for a bit of sightseeing on your Kangaroo Island tours. There are many interstate matches that are held here during the summer months along with the national APL football as well as interstate football matches that are held during the winter season. The grounds can seat up to 50,000 people and when they all start to cheer the boost is almost tangible. There are many guided trips that can be taken of the place if you feel the need to be taken through all of the main highlights here.
The art gallery of South Australia
Do you have a penchant for Australian art? If that is the case, then you will definitely love the parquet floored and vault roofed gallery that holds some of the finest art that has come out of the maestros in Australia. There are also interestingly several permanent exhibitions that include Aboriginal, Asian, Torres Strait Island, European, Australian and North American displays. The progressive displays will be shown in the basement of the building for the most part. There are also free guided trips in the gallery and even lunchtime seminars along with a gorgeous café off the back of the grounds that you really must try out after a long day.
