Just for something different, we’re going to do a short walk around the docklands over the next week or 2. We’ll start and finish here at the ‘Cow Up A Tree’. The Walk took about 2.5hrs but if you weren’t shooting Virtual Tours you would do it in less than an hour. This Virtual Tour sees us between the Telstra Dome & the Cow art I mentioned...

The Adelaide Festival Bridge is part of a dynamic urban streetscape project completed in 2004 to revitalize the Festival Center and promenade precinct. The bridge links two buildings that are very different architecturally, yet succeeds in retaining the identity of each of these buildings while also creating its own, by using laminated glass in a way not often seen in civic...
