Day Trips

All Prices given on request

NOTE - For any Mystery trip, either wear walking (enclosed) shoes or bring a pair with you. We have been caught out a few times and I’d hate anyone to miss out on a tour because of their shoes

Please DO NOT wear perfume or strong aftershave or other things that smell as a lot of passengers have adverse effects from these and it can spoil their Day or Evening

Austbuilt Maritime Museum 
 Sunday 14th January

Departs – Greenock Bd 6.55am, Kapunda HSt 7.15,
 Nuriootpa Fw

This is NOT the Maritime Museum we visited last year
If I was to write all the information I have of this museum it would take up a lot room, so I will mention one person. ‘ Old Keith’ is the late Keith Le Leu – The bloke they called ‘the bowerbird of the ocean’. Born in Port Adelaide in 1926, Keith spent his life at sea as a merchant sailor – but he was always drawn back to the Port.  He died in 2006 but before his death, he handed the museum over to the Port Adelaide Historical Society – whose volunteers have vowed to keep it going.
He collected everything from anywhere it could be found or seen. Having been a seaman on ships, he travelled all over Australia, around the world and wherever he saw something that was going to be scrapped or thrown out, he would organize to get it for the museum.

Lunch will be at the Port Dock Brewery. A lovely Carvery lunch like the Weintal used to have, and after lunch take a stroll over to the Fisherman’s Wharf Markets, which we haven’t been to  for a long time
All Inclusive Cost  per person

The Planetarium

ry

Tanunda OTR 8.20, LRd 8.25, Ins 8.30, Lyndoch OpVG 8.45, Gawler FsPs 9.00

  We did this trip a few years ago and I tell you it is so much better than trying to find something in the sky through a telescope. You sit in a comfortable chair, tilt it to your liking and watch the show

The Planetarium is located at the University of South Australia Mawson Lakes and is part of the School of Natural and Built Environments. It contains a Zeiss ZKP- 1 star projector that simulates a starry sky on an 8 meter dome and has seating for 45. The projector provides a remarkably realistic sense of being under the real night sky. It is used to show the sky as seen from the southern hemisphere, pointing out constellations, the Milky Way, the Magellanic Clouds and where to look for planets. It also demonstrates the general celestial motions that cause the sky to appear different at various times of the night and year.
 Tour lasts for approximately 1 hour, during this time we will watch a short movie (We’re Not sure which one it will be) also be aware that the lights will be turned down and it will be dark for most of the session, mobile phones need to be switched off
You are able to ask questions, I believe at any time. If you wish to take photos inside the Planetarium please ask the astronomy educator running the session
Lunch today will be at the White Horse Inn then we will see how much time we have left to visit another venue
Total Cost per person
