Adelaide’s Brighton Beach

It seems as if Brighton is actually a pretty popular name for a suburb. In fact I reckon a majority of states in Australia have a Brighton. For instance there is one in Tasmania, one one Victoria (which happens to be a really, really swanky suburb), one on Queensland, and of course one in South Australia. In fact, with the exception of Brighton Tasmania, all of them happen to be a seaside suburb (though they don’t strictly border the sea as Brisbane and Melbourne are both on bays, while Adelaide in on a gulf). … More Adelaide’s Brighton Beach

Okay, I have already partly written a post of a couple of Adelaide’s beaches (Glenelg, though that had more to do with my New Year’s Eve adventure, and Semaphore), so I guess I probably should write one about another beach that I seem to have regularly visited.

Semaphore – A quiet seaside hideaway

Okay, I was really not intending on travelling down to Semaphore the last time I was in Adelaide, but it was only because when I was wandering around Glanville with my friend with the intention of visiting the Exeter that he suggested we wander further down Semaphore road to visit a pub that I had not been to in a long time (and one that I never realised existed). … More Semaphore – A quiet seaside hideaway

South Australia has a St Kilda as well

To many Melbournians St Kilda is an inner city beachside playground that is famous for its beach, amusement park, baths, jetty, and the Esplanade Hotel (among other things). However, while the name St Kilda still brings images of the Melbourne suburb (including the Espy). However there is another St Kilda I have always associated that name with, a St Kilda located a mere 20 kms from the Adelaide CBD. … More South Australia has a St Kilda as well
