Minibreak Series: Get Arty in Adelaide

To see the most complete collection of French Impressionist paintings shown in Australia is reason enough to book a weekend in Adelaide.  Add world class wines, boutique hotels and a growing foodie scene into the mix and you may want to stay a week!


Until July 29, 65 masterpieces from the Musee D'Orsay will be on display at the Art Gallery of South Australia.  The biggest exhibition of French Impressionist paintings in Australia includes works by Monet, Renoir, Cezanne and Seurat among others.


Travel an hour North to the Barossa Valley to sample some of the most iconic and award winning wines in the world.  Visit over 80 cellar doors and discover a new favourite, or even create your own blend at Penfolds to take home with you.


For fine dining be sure to try Orana's degustation of local and native food or Adelaide institution Chianti.  Enjoy a long lunch at the picturesque Botanic Gardens Restaurant and allow yourself a morning to wander through Adelaide's Central Market, visiting one of the 80 stalls and joining the interactive cooking demos.  Lastly, be sure to stock up on the famous Haigh's chocolates before you head home.


A good Crew Neck is so versatile, making it an essential element of your winter wardrobe, and perfect for a weekend away.

For smart casual gallery-wandering, team your crew neck with a pair of pleated trousers and quirky accessories.


Glamming up for an evening out doesn't mean you have to be cold.  Wear your knit over a collared maxi dress or skirt and top for dinner and drinks.


Explore the city in style with a crew neck and leather biker jacket.  Just make sure your backpack is big enough to stash all the wine and chocolate!
