Adelaide - 27-29 September 2009


Later in the year, I have to drive into the desert in South Australia along Epic Energy's Moomba to Adelaide pipeline as part of the PC deployment project. In preparation for that, I was sent to Adelaide to do some 4WD training. I decided to go a day earlier to check out the sights of Adelaide. Although there for work, touring around in a rental car and 4WD training seemed more like fun to me so I treated it as an all expenses paid holiday!

Overlooking Adelaide from Mount Lofty.

I had a couple hours to kill before I had to get on the plane, so I did a sport stadium tour.
