South Australians it’s time to get out and about and explore this glorious state that we live in.
You might be looking to go regional for a weekend or a mid-week getaway as things start to re-open and we forge a path into the new normal.
Not everything has the green light to be open currently though, so here are our top tips for going regional and exploring this great state.
If you are looking to go regional, it pays to book ahead for your accommodation and general experiences.
If you are looking to dine out, etc. Some venues are currently closed and the ones that are open will be working under smaller capacities to deal with social distancing. So, try to book ahead to avoid disappointment.
And if you book and can’t make the booking for whatever reason please be mindful and let the venue know with plenty of notice. No shows are frustrating normally but even more so when venues have a limited capacity.
Most areas would love your support, so instead of bringing in all your food and items, try and do your research before you head into a regional area and try and buy local.
Your favourite winery cellar door may not be open, but they might be doing takeaway wine, pizzas or platters. Look to support local where you can.
Make a locavore picnic
With so much beautiful produce in regional South Australia, you might want to shop from a few different providers and make a picnic to enjoy at the beach or taking in some country air.
Pick up a bottle of vino, grab some local olives or cheeses and put together a locavore platter to be enjoyed.
Take some home with you
Grab some local produce and take it home with you as well. There is nothing quite like getting your produce direct from the source. So, if you try something and love it, take some home with you, pop a review on their socials and share it with your friends.
Patience is key
If you are heading to a regional town in the next few weeks be mindful that businesses may be running at a bare minimum with staff and it may just be the business owners working.
If it’s busy and you have to wait that little bit longer for your coffee or food, show a little bit of kindness and patience it goes a long way.
