I love Adelaide, which is why I created the Scenic Adelaide Blog. Awhile back I wrote about the Porosa Hike Trail which is part of Cobblers Creek. The thing is there are a lot of lovely places where folk can go for a walk/jog/hike. I found another great place to take my Fitbit Charge 2 for another spin. Check out my Fitbit Charge 2 review.

The Anstey Hill Recreation Park can be found 16km north east of Adelaide. There are heaps of gates leading into Anstey Hill, but I prefer to use Gate 3 on Perseverance Road.

Anstey Hill has roughly 25 km of tracks that everyone can enjoy, from leisurely ones to tracks, like Torture Hill, that will get your heart pumping.

My personal opinion is that Anstey Hill Recreation Park is perfect for raising your fitness level. I mentioned Torture Hill earlier, I still haven’t managed to jog the whole way without stopping but I’m getting that little bit further with every visit.

The first time I explored Anstey Hill I listened to music on my iPhone. Now I prefer to listen to mother nature around me, from the babbling brook, on the way to the Newman’s Nursery ruins, to wind blowing through the trees. Not to mention the birds and the hooting of the koala’s.

I’ve even come across some grey kangaroos on some of my walks.

The views can be quite stunning as well. The image below shows the stage they’ve set up for the Adelaide Festival’s Secret River performance at the Anstey Hill Quarry.

2017-02-24 08.27.40-2Just up from the Newman’s Nursery ruins I cam across the stunning flowers you see there on the left. I wanted to find a bit of history of the Newman’s Nursery and it seems that it wasn’t able to survive two ‘horrific’ storms and the ensuing drought the following year.

Not satisfied with that I kept looking until I found a more complete history of the original Newman’s Nursery.

As for a more complete write-up of the Anstey Hill Recreation Park I reckon this Wikipedia article is pretty good.

When I first explored Anstey Hill my only disappointment was that, unlike Cobblers Creek, there wasn’t enough signage. To my surprise I found they had rectified that on today’s walk. Having said that I reckon they could have done a better job as sometimes I’m not sure where the hell they’re pointing at. 😉

No matter where you go in the world, something that is always remembered is those beautiful sunsets. These sunsets can be so striking that they are etched in your mind. They are something to be treasured and one of the many of God’s most precious gifts.

Hopefully before I leave this most beautiful world of ours I’ll be able to share with you some of the most beautiful sunsets that I have been able to capture. Until then I’ve searched the web and have come up with the top 10 most beautiful Adelaide sunsets. Naturally they’re about Adelaide because that is what ScenicAdelaide is all about 😉

Ten Most Beautiful Adelaide Sunsets

As I said at the beginning of the post I found, all except for one, all of these images on the net. I thought it only fair that I link to those sites in order to give them the credit that they deserve.

  • WeekendNotes has a beautiful sunset at Hallet Cove as well as other beautiful sunsets.
  • Mannum Falls and the Semaphore sunset can be found on Adelaide Now.
  • The beautiful rural sunset in Adelaide hills was found on Travel Freak.
  • The stunning Adelaide Oval sunset was found on Independent. You may well remember my Adelaide Oval post
  • Strangely enough the Australian Bridal Affair hosted the Glenelg Golf Club photo.
  • We can thank the Port Lincoln Times for the Lower Inman Valley shot.
  • The beautiful Lyndoch sunset came from Valley Imagery.
  • The Seppeltsfield vines shot is spectacular and can be found at the South Australia website. I love this image even though the sunset played second fiddle to the vines.
  • Inspire has a lovely Brighton Jetty sunset. I mention the Brighton Jetty in another of my posts.
  • Bush Heritage takes us bush to see the beautiful sunset at Boolcoomatta Reserve.

I hope you enjoyed this post. If you did, please share it with your friends and if at all possible I’d love it if you could head over to YouTube and give it the thumbs up.



Usually when I write a review I do it after taking whatever service was being offered for a spin. Normally those services are brick and mortar businesses and you have to go to them. Not so with Gino’s Mobile Pizzeria because Gino comes to you.

Gino’s Mobile Pizzeria Taste Sensation

You may be asking yourself, if I’ve never tried Gino’s pizzas how can I possibly recommend him? The answer really is quite simple. First, Gino is a cousin on my wife’s side of the family. Secondly, Gino used to own a pizza restaurant when I was dating back in the day, some 25 years ago, and Gino used to make the best pizzas I’ve ever tasted.

I’m assuming that making pizza is like riding a bike, once you know how it just stays with you. If anything, as far as making pizzas go, you can only get better as time goes by.

When I bumped into Gino recently he was telling me about his new business. You can check out his Facebook page here.

If you have a function coming up, whether it’s a birthday, engagement or whatever, and you want to do something different for your guests you should consider giving Gino a call. The Brighton Surf Lifesavers club did just that. That’s Gino in the image above, all set up and raring to go.

Once you book him Gino will come to you with his specially constructed wood oven on a 6×4 trailer. Gino will then use all his pizza making skills to make sure that your guests have a great time.

I’m not sure if the menu or prices has changed but I’ve posted one that I pinched from his Facebook page. 😉

So, if you have a function that you would like to have catered why not give Gino a call on 0411263624
