We really don’t realize how good we have it, here in SA. My tour guests from Asia, and interestingly, those from Sydney, often comment about how beautiful our city is. Put simply, Adelaide has much clean and green appeal for tourists. It’s old colonial and Victorian structures, then our many homes with detailed quoin work bring oohs and aaahs… “I would love to own that” . Our wonderful parks and gardens, our vineyards and nearby wine regions, all amaze, with many saying they would love to live here.
Our food is always a highlight, with our abundant and low cost meat, seafood and fruits, a highlight for Asian visitors. But the most frequent comment is how clean our city is….the virtually pollution- free air, the well maintained and grime- free buildings, and how little litter is found in our streets and on our beaches.
People from Hong Kong for example, spend much of their tour day taking photos in our gardens, with many unable to even grow pot plants in their home city apartments, due to a lack of sunlight. And many want to stop to experience the wonderful roses and wild flowers.
We definitely take for granted what we are able to enjoy every day!
