Fair Espresso is another one of those cafes that I have been walking past for quite a long time now, casually perusing their wares from a distance, for some time now. When I say ‘a distance’, this is a few metres as they are situated at the entrance to the central markets next to the courts.

The Highway – Native Creative menu

fish 1 - Copy

The Australian identity. What that is precisely is particularly difficult to define. We talk about the Australian dream, being the lucky country. This sports mad bunch who drink beer, swim with sharks, have pet kangaroos, live on acres of land each, smear Vegemite on everything and ironically for an island national, don’t like people on boats. Ok so WE don’t ...

Sometimes things can be hiding right there in plain sight, sitting almost literally underneath your nose, yet you continue to not see it is there. Its not like I don’t go out of my way to look for things either – keeping my eye’s open for anything new and interesting to check out is just what I do. And yet ...

Lost in a Forest 

Set amongst the trees and hidden away in the beautiful village of Uraidla is one of the Adelaide Hills best kept secrets. Wood oven pizza is a bit dime-a-dozen these days, so this alone is not enough to raise any eyebrows. An old church being the main building and kitchen is an interesting feature, as is allowing patrons to simply throw ...
