Lovely Laura

A couple of weeks ago I took a spontaneous bus trip north of the city to a small regional town rich in history. Laura is located 230 kms from Adelaide approximately 90 minutes drive away. If you keep travelling beyond the wine region of Clare Valley you will discover a small picturesque town of history and beauty.

Home of the South Australian poet CJ Dennis, it is the perfect base for which to explore. You can even sit on the median strip in the Main Street and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee.
