Re: SA Economy

Regarding the "old Mate" advertisement, I was quick to write it off as a mistake purely from online surveys and reading/listening to media commentary over the past few days. After actually watching it today for the first time, I really can't see what the big deal is about. For starters it's very sh...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

A new taxi drop-off will be/has been created near the hotel construction site, where the old International Terminal used to be. Melbourne and Brisbane Airports now have dedicated pick-up and drop off areas, similar to how they are in Adelaide. Melbourne still has the dedicated ramp up to the depart...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

re: pickup/drop off zone Apologies if this was discussed earlier in the thread, but something has to be done about the pick up/drop off road. Any plans for this? Going back in time, obviously the original plan was the implemented separate levels of departures and arrivals. When they decided to move ...

Re: Krispy Kreme opens on Port Road

I tend to think that they went out of business because it's hard for them to compete with pubs that can sell subsidised meals because they make money from pokies. All you can eat doesn't seem to work either, Pizza Hut was all you can eat and they also closed down their restaurants. Sizzler still ex...

Re: Cars come last in transport planning: tale of two cities

this is hardly rocket science - more dense, public transport focussed, lively downtowns with large residential populations are cities that are far more livable and tourist friendly, than suburban, sprawling, freeway oriented car dependant cities. There are no surprises that Vancouver, NY, and San F...

Re: Cars come last in transport planning: tale of two cities

I overhead some American tourists comparing Dallas to Vancouver, they couldn't work why Vancouver seemed so lively when it is only one third the size of Dallas (Never been there but I believe Dallas is a "suburbs in search of a city" style metro area) I was in Dallas a couple of months ago. I felt ...

Re: 2012 Fringe Festival

This is annoying http://www.melbournefringe.com.au/ There is now even a Sydney and Perth one and get this the Perth one has created their own "Garden of unearthly delights". I can see the competition between cities heating up over the next decade. Dont be too concerned about the Perth "Garden" I wa...

Adelaide's Bar/Pub Scene

Just to differentiate from the "club" scene, i thought i'd make a bar/pub scene for us folk that dont like the loud/dark atmosphere's of clubs. Heading to Adelaide in November, and prefer the bar/pub scene where the crowds are generally mature and are able to engage socially. What are the latest "ho...

Re: Something we can Learn from Perth

Am I wrong to think that something like that would look fantastic on the MCL Building in Victoria Square? I actually live in Perth and it looks much better than in the picture... Here is another story about it, and a few other pics as well... http://www.viccreations.com.au/2010/04/perth-council-hou...

Re: Something we can Learn from Perth

Just to clarify, Perth has not destroyed all of their exemplary high-rise buildings from the period. One has survived. The amazing Council House, which is regarded as one of the best examples of the purity of modernism. However they did try to demolish it earlier this decade, however it managed to ...
