    I once read that Fringe season in Adelaide is like the party - the rest of the year is the hangover ;) Whilst this is maybe a slight exaggeration, it's certainly a great time to be in Adelaide. A few great things coming up to check out:


    Adelaide Fringe - similar to Edinburgh Fringe - 3 and a bit weeks of comedy, theatre, musicals, cabaret, circus and much more. Check out There are lots of discounted tickets available to at the Bank SA Fringe site ( Even if you're not sure if it's 'your thing' do check out the Garden of Unearthly Delights on the corner of North and East terrace just for a wander or a beer


    Adelaide Festival - - more arts and cultural goodness


    Cellar Door Wine Festival - over 150 wineries from all over SA under one roof this weekend at the Adelaide Convention Centre - I went last year for the first time this event was on and it was fabulous. The entrance fee includes a souvenir glass and one full glass of wine (plus tastings of course from as many of the wines as you like all day - dangerous!)


    It's also music festival season - for dance lovers there's Future Music coming up and also Womadelaide for world music, both on the March long weekend -


    Clipsal 500 motorsports event - 1-4 March plus live music in the evenings


    I'm sure someone more sporty than me could also add a few sporting events coming up too. Hope this gives some ideas to newbies or not-so-newbies looking for something new to try. Adelaide might be quiet for some tastes, but I honestly have no idea how anyone could be bored Feb-March with so much exciting stuff happening! And no - I don't work for the tourist board - just love this season!
