Mystery Flight to..... Adelaide!

Wednesday, 30 May 2012

As I mentioned in my last post, it was my sister in-law's birthday and she wanted a girls weekend to celebrate. So many months ago I planted the idea of a mystery flight in her head and last weekend it was finally here. Our flight took us to the lovely city of Adelaide, the city of churches.

We left on Friday morning and didn't return until late Sunday night, giving us enough time for a day trip to the Barossa Valley.

And to visit Maggie Beer's Farm...

and the kitchen where the TV series The Cook and the Chef was filmed. That was such a good show, I don't know why they axed it (and off she goes on a rant...).

We also had time to go to the Adelaide zoo where they have the only Panda's in the southern hemisphere...

It was a lovely weekend, with none of us having been to Adelaide before we tried to pack in as much as we could in the short time we had. Alongside being called the city of churches, we all agreed it should also be called the city of parks as the city centre is surrounded by a ring of parks, dividing it from the suburbs.

We enjoyed the trip so much and all agreed it was great value for money, with the novelty of not knowing where we were going until the last minute adding to the fun. (Admittedly we did peek at the destination before we packed, simply for practical reasons, I would hate to pack for Darwin's weather at this time of the year and end up in Hobart!)

Have you been on a mystery flight? Where did you end up?



  1. Cool - so it was a surprise for both of you - sounds like you did pack a lot into that weekend.

  2. oh wow what a great destination, I have never been to Adelaide, you certainly did see a lot,I must look into these mystery flights now.

  3. Sounds like you had a brilliant time. What fun flying off to an unknown (until the last minute!!) destination :-)

  4. Glad you enjoyed our city, we love it too. The Cook/Chef program was not axed - Simon Bryant decided he wanted to do something else & Maggie agreed, so it was their initiative.
