    Port of Newcastle, Australia by Liz Anelli

    Newcastle, NSW, AU


    This map is partly historical, partly anecdotal, mostly geographically accurate and made up from my explorations ( by bicycle) and persistent questioning of everyone I met with anything to do with the Port since moving to Newcastle 2 years ago.

    Adelaide, South Australia by Kate Mason

    Brooklyn Park, South Australia, Australia


    I was born in Adelaide & have lived here all my life. I can't imagine living anywhere else. Its smallish & beautiful & was a very well planned city settlement back in 1836. The River Torrens runs right through the city centre straight out to the beach. Its surrounded by bike paths and you can bike all the way around from beach through the city to the hills. The city centre is made up of orderly blocks & four main squares. The neat city centre is surrounded by parks & gardens.

    We have everything practical that we need here as well as all the crazy adventurous stuff & we are paradise for foodies. We are world famous for our Barossa Valley wines, great white sharks, city of Churches, WOMADelaide, Tasting Australia, Adelaide & Fringe Festivals, the magnificent Adelaide Oval Cricket Ground & Tour Down Under Cycling.

    Adelaide is a great place to raise a family & because its a very affordable living city its perfect as a base to travel the world, then come home to blissful life. There's no place like home!

    Ranked in top 10 in The Economists Worlds most liveable cities in 2010, 2011 & 2012. Also ranked THE most liveable city in Australia {Property Council of Australia] in 2011, 2012 & 2013!

    On my map, I've included all the artsy & quirky & adventurous things to do in Adelaide & surrounds. They are all the places I recommend & take visitors new to our city to. Come & visit & see all the amazing things we have to offer!
