Discover South Australia
In my last post I talked about the local channel 9 television programme “Postcards from South Australia.” Another local station, channel 7 have a similar programme called “Discover South Australia.”
Strangely, a thorough search did not turn up a web presence. Odd. Still, even though it also features many wonderful aspects of our state, it is nowhere near as good as the “Postcards” show, in my opinion. It also tends to be more lifestyle oriented than strictly directed at the local tourist industry.
An episode of “Discover” we watched several years ago did encourage us to go somewhere we might not normally have visited. We were planning a short holiday in Mt Gambier in the South East district of the state. On our way we detoured slightly to have lunch in the Mundulla Hotel. This turned out to be your typical Aussie country pub with excellent food and a lovely atmosphere. It was well worth the effort to visit.
I watched the programme again this evening. Interesting without being inspired to do anything special. You get that.
