Australia’s Best City – Entertainment Another long weekend in Australia, as we celebrate and remember those who bravely fought for our beautiful country. This long weekend is the last for many states until the Winter months – it’s the last opportunity to enjoy a bit of sunshine (hopefully) over 3 days. For many people, the long weekend will begin by attending Dawn Services, held across Australia from Capital Cities, to regional RSL clubs. This might be followed up with brunch with family and friends. But one thing is for sure, many Australian’s will be looking for activities for the remainder of the weekend. What are your plans for the weekend? For many Australian’s, Entertainment plays a big part in choosing where to live. In this video, Ivan Aristeguieta chose a few questions from the Australia’s Best City Entertainment category and asked the public their thoughts.

Recently Australia’s Best City, met up with Adam Troyn the creator of the Kampus platform… Kampus is an innovative concept that is connecting students with businesses and start-ups. It also allows students to search for one another from different fields of study or institutions based on their skills and knowledge, should they wish to connect. Kampus aims to help students open that first door, which is always the hardest, by enabling them to showcase their abilities to prospective employers.

Adam also makes note, that Universities are currently rebranding themselves as more entrepreneurial, and accordingly they need to give their students the tool to connect with other current students from other fields. In effect, creating their own opportunities if they want to go down the entrepreneurial path. Kampus is a positive step forward […]
Mad March in Adelaide: this article was originally written by Fotis Kapetopoulos in The Daily Review on March 20, 2014. Nearly March already? What’s up with Adelaide’s Mad March? The place rocked! I completed my sabbatical to the Adelaide Festival. Now that it’s over I need to breathe and ask what is happening in my old hometown? Small cities do great festivals while big cities create great art. This over-planned Anglophile city of about 1.23 million explodes in March but there’s nothing subtle about it anymore. It’s festival chaos. The Adelaide Festival, once Australia’s major biennial festival is now annual. The Adelaide Fringe Festival, a star for emerging and edgy artists, has grown to a Megalotherion comedy and whatever-else-can-fit festival. My favourite, WOMADelaide, the poster child of the musically worldly, is now a middle earth experience laden with concessions for the middle class children of Gaia.

Dreamlike spaces can transport you from Gatsby-esque oeuvres at Lola’s Pergola to the edgy carnie magic of Garden of Unearthly Delights and the enchantment of WOMAdelaide at […]
