So far, 2020 has not shaped up to be a great year with so many Australians initially caught up in the tragic bush fires and now the global pandemic Covid-19.
Our local and regional businesses need our support more than ever. With the highest advice level discouraging any form of international travel means we should be branching out and exploring our own backyard.
Whether that be supporting your local coffee shop, restaurants, hotels, even if it is buying take-away from them, or organising a weekend short stay somewhere in a B & B. A road trip, embracing the great outdoors at one of South Australia’s best camping spots or in complete luxury on a glamping adventure.
Spend the weekend with wildlife, gazing up at star-filled skies or hiking rugged, pristine landscapes.
Imagine arriving at your campsite to find the tent set up, bed pulled back and every creature comfort you could dream of catered for.
