Camarilla Road Trip - Melbourne to Adelaide!

If you're not interested in playing the Camarilla game while in Adelaide, other than eating at one of the wonderful places nearby, take a walk through the city and go visit one of the beautiful parks in Adelaide. On a 30C day, we headed to one of the parks on the west side of the city, by a river. Elder Park, I believe. It was a pretty place with a gazebo, large shady trees, and no one around! And this was on the weekend!! Unlike Melbourne, Adelaide must be a quiet place. A park like that would have been packed on a similar day in Melbourne!

Hotel | "East End Astoria Serviced Apartments"

East End Astoria apartments are quite spacious, pretty and clean. We stayed with a group of friends, and with two bedrooms and a couch, even fitting five people inside left more than enough room for everyone! The room had a good sized kitchen area as part of the main room, a shower/bath in the bathroom, and a balcony out overlooking the street below. The major down side was that people apparently live in the apartments, rather than just holiday makers, and they insist on a no-noise policy. The planned party in the rooms did not go ahead due to this policy. The funny thing was that even with a bunch of noisy people inside, you can't hear t...Read More

East End Continental was a fantastic place for brunch. For AUD$11.50 you get eggs, mushrooms, bacon, sausages, tomatoes and more. Perfect for a midday pick-me-up after a night out at the pub. They have indoor and outdoor tables, and the view across the road is of one of Adelaide's parks - so not only do they have good food, but you get a great view, too! We had about 10 people turning up for brunch on the Saturday, and they catered for this sudden appearance of a large group rather well. Unfortunately, there was no room for us all for Sunday brunch, but there didn't seem to be any requirement for reservations for smaller groups. East Terrace Continental is...Read More

Getting up before 6am is a pain, but there is no point in sleeping when you've got to get up at 6.15am anyway to get ready for a road trip and start picking up people. So tired as I was, on Friday 19th December, I managed to get to Roger and Elizabeth by about 7am and Michael before 7.30am. At least we all live the same side of Melbourne! Getting to Euan's took longer than expected, and we finally arrived by about 8.30am. Then we had to get to Shaun's house, where he and Andrew were. Ugh, that was a fun journey. I have no idea when we left Shaun's house for the start of the journey, but it had to be close to 10am! Going to Adelaide is all well and good, but if you don't have a map, it's a little...Read More
