Adelaide is much less popular on TE than Melbourne and Sydney. Probably the reason is it is far and none of Trekkers is living there. But it is very pleasant city.
Adelaide is the fifth-largest city in Australia with a population of 1.23 million.
Named in honour of Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen, queen consort to King William IV, the city was founded in 1836 as the planned capital for a freely settled British province in Australia. Colonel William Light, one of Adelaide's founding fathers, designed the city and chose its location close to the River Torrens in the area originally inhabited by the Kaurna people. Light's design set out Adelaide in a grid layout, interspaced by wide boulevards and large public squares, and entirely surrounded by parkland.
As South Australia's seat of government and commercial centre, Adelaide is the site of many governmental and financial institutions. Today, Adelaide is noted for its many festivals and sporting events, its food, wine and culture, its long beachfronts. It ranks highly in terms of liveability, being listed in the Top 10 of The Economist's World's Most Liveable Cities.
We walked around the streets and made pleasant "discoveries" I have shown already the old Goodman building. Here is the Austral Hotel that I liked. Its architecture reminded me Cape Town. I found about this hotel on its site:
Situated in the heart of the East End on Rundle Street, the Iconic Austral Hotel has long been
recognised as a favourite amongst the greater population of Adelaide andvisiting guests.
The Austral Hotel was built in the early to mid 1800’s using square sandstone and stucco. Ernest
Cohen first opened the doors of the hotel formerly known as ‘The Family Hotel’ on December 8th
1879. 28 years on to the day (Dec 8th 1907), The Austral Hotel was branded. Now trading in its 132nd
year, the Austral continues to grow from strength to strength and is recognised as one of Adelaide

un hotel dalla bella architettura e dai molteplici colori.
La fascia che riporta l'insegna è molto bella e le sedie offrono un colpo d'occhio fantastico.

J'aime beaucoup la texture visuelle de cette composition. Le travail de post production est excellent et donne toute une lumière et des couleurs très spéciales à l'ensemble.

This is really a nice building and being from the first half of the 19th century it must be as much of a cultural heritage that Australia can boast of. The plastic chairs are not as stylish as the building but they certainly add a lot of colour.

pamietam ze bylem zaskoczony w Argentynie widzac lokalne linie lotnicze Austral, dopiero pozniej dowiedzialem sie ze to oznacza poludnie...
Bardzo ladny kolorowy hotelik, nie tylko kolorowo pomalowali ale rowniez uzyli kolorowych krzesel.
Ciekawy rowniez styl -to wszystko razem tworzy bardzo interesujacy efekt.
A propos tego co napisalas mi dzisiaj. Rzeczywiscie dane mi bylo zobaczyc bardzo wiele i mialem okazje do zrobienia w moim zyciu fajnych zdjec. Jestem za to ogromnie wdzieczny Opatrznosci co jednak nie powstrzymuje mnie przed narzekaniem poniewaz moje marzenia byly jeszcze wieksze. Przyszlosc niestety nie zapowiada sie dobrze ale tak jak mowisz i tak mam szczescie ze udalo mi sie zobaczyc o wiele wiecej niz przecietnemu czlowiekowi.

what a difference the chairs make in a scene hey!
for some reason it reminds me of buildings I have seen on TV or in print from the city of New Orleans in the states.
smart of the owners to purchase bright colored chairs to attract visual attention.
love the colors, the style and the history.
awesome post for TE!
yes, 1 year since visiting Warsaw :)
Time goes by too quickly!
Nothing planned for trips yet, going to stay home for awhile :)
