The Long Weekend

We were lucky enough to find ourselves heading for the big smoke for the long weekend and between birthday parties, doing breakfast and catching up, I did a little exploring with my camera...

sunrise over the River Torrens

Art on the River Torrens

Elder Park Rotunda

one of the locals

we had an excellent view of the football fans on Saturday night!
Adelaide Oval

Adelaide Railway Station
I love the old Seppelts sign

Old Parliament House

State Library

Mortlock Wing, State Library
It's a little step back in time...

some of the titles of these ancient tomes are extremely amusing!

 I love discovering places I have not seen before, like the Mortlock Wing of the State Library or seeing things in a new light as I did on my early morning walk along the River Torrens.

Do you ever play 'visitor' in your town?

Linking with Trish  for Wordless Wednesday 



  1. What beautiful photos - that rotundra one is very pretty.

    1. Thank you Lydia. It's a beautiful spot!

  2. Stunning collection of interesting photos. I like the library and the swan.
    Thank you for linking up.

    1. I could while away a lot of time in the library! Thanks for dropping by Trish

  3. Some fantastic photo's there Kate! I love discovering new places that I've never been to before. Must admit that I don't explore my own city enough though!!

    1. Thank you Min. It's amazing what you can find in your own back yard

  4. That library looks like it could be straight out of Harry Potter!

    1. Doesn't it Janet!!! I wouldn't have been surprised if I'd seen Professor Flitwick researching something in the back corner 😊

  5. What a brilliant way to spend your long weekend, I so want to visit that library x

  6. Gorgeous photos Kate. What a lovely weekend. You have captured Adelaide perfectly, it has reminded me that we need to get back there one of these days. x
