Upcoming Events

Day Trip to Port Adelaide Thursday August 4

Please meet at the Seacliff Railway Station at 9 am where we will catch the train into the city and then out to Port Adelaide. On arrival in Port Adelaide participants can decide whether to stay altogether or break off into groups depending on personal interests. The Aviation Museum, the National Railway Museum and the Maritime Museum are all on Lipson St so I suggest we make our way there.

We will all meet for lunch at 12:30 at the Lighthouse Wharf Hotel. From the Railway Station all of the above are within 10 - 15 minute walk so a relatively easy walk.

When we’ve had enough we can make our way back to the Railway Station and head for home! I’m looking forward to it and hoping for decent weather!!

 

Historic Walking Tours Thursday September 1

Historic Walking Tour of Seacliff and Kingston Park / Historic Walking Tour Walking Tour of Brighton.

My thoughts are that those participating can choose which they prefer out of the two walks. I will be your guide whichever tour we decide on. A decision will be made at the General Meeting held Thursday August 25.

Seacliff Tour - takes approximately 1.5 hours with some inclines and stairs commencing at Seacliff Yacht Club 10 am.

Brighton Tour - takes approximately 1 hour and would be a less physically demanding walk commencing at Brighton Civic Centre 10 am

Lunch at either Seacliff or Esplanade Hotel depending on which walk we do!

 

 The Planetarium Thursday October 6

This will be at University of SA at the Mawson Lakes Campus.  More details to come.

July 7th Annual Winery Tour

This is the Club's annual winery tour and this year we retrun to the Southern Vale’s.  Twenty of our members boarded the bus to take us on our Winery Tour Thursday July 7. Our first tasting was at Serafino Winery. We arrived early but were quickly settled and enjoyed a leisurely tasting of their wines as well a brief history of Serafino which is situated on the original Andrew Garret Winery grounds. We then all headed off to Woodstock for another tasting followed by a sumptuous lunch. It was a relaxed setting and I think everyone enjoyed the meal. There was a great deal of conversation and laughter during our visit. Our last visit was to Mc Carthy’s Orchard. A very different setting to our previous two experiences. The bus pulled into what looked like a couple of old sheds and an outside seating area. We all headed indoors for the warmth of the fire to be greeted by wandering chooks!!! This venue proved to be a popular choice as many comments were heard, ‘this is sooo cute’ and ‘how quaint’. All in all a diverse range of winery experiences and a memorable day!!
