Isn't there a chocolate factory you can tour in the Adelaide Hills somewhere? I remember going on a school excursion there.
Exciting as a kid, given all the free chocolate you can sample, but as an adult, what's so fun?

Would be interested if you could update your pub thread with what you thought of the Fringe activities his year.

There is, and I've been there with my nephew and niece and it was ok. There's also Heighs on Greenhill Road which is very similar.

That's nothing like what I was referring to in my last post though. I was referring to a far more imaginative 21st century fantasyland. As an adult or a child of any age, that would be fun!

Not gonna happen though but it was merely the first thing that came to mind as an idea, which could make good use of the kiln and the general landscape of the Brickworks, as it was.

And people like to complain, so the cost will always be the problem. Our state just isn't affluent enough and doesnt have the corporate support to provide large scale entertainment areas.
That is sadly true, but I can see some signs things are slowly starting to change.

I did look at various guides to the things that were on but whilst I do appreciate that there was a lot of things that would please some people, none of it was really for me except the Fawlty Towers dining experience. I didn't go to that this year because I went last year (and it was fantastic!)

I personally find most of the Fringe events a bit too off-beat for my tastes.

Drove past today and the barbecue store looks as good as demolished to me.

It might be Friday night talking, but why are we concerning ourselves with the fate of a suburban barbecue store? Small fry.

Does anyone know when this is to open? it looks pretty close to externally complete. the intersection and south road next to this is currently being upgraded into 3 lanes each way in preparation for the upgrade further north.

There is a $180 million entertainment development planned for Parafield which will include Indoor Skydiving. I will start a thread on
this shortly. From the Adelaide now Website :
Kings Point will feature more than 20,000sqm of entertainment space including cinemas, water slides, an aqua playground, indoor surfing, tenpin bowling, laser skirmish, a games arcade, rock climbing and a massive indoor trampoline.

Woolworths have now sold the site to Charter Hall Retail REIT for $7.55m, and committed to a 20yr lease for Woolworths and BigW.

The $7.55m was the land component of the sale price but the final sale price of the completed shopping centre will be around $75m [price is based on 6.89% capitalised return of the leases achieved].
