A couple of weeks ago I took a spontaneous bus trip north of the city to a small regional town rich in history. Laura is located 230 kms from Adelaide approximately 90 minutes drive away. If you keep travelling beyond the wine region of Clare Valley you will discover a small picturesque town of history and beauty.
It is a a quiet place perfect for a relaxing long weekend getaway. Laura is a small regional town many overlook but it is well worth spending a long weekend at.
Laura is bursting with history and the original flour mill still stands today, although it is no longer in commercial use.
Laura is a perfect location to base yourself and explore the area. Take a day trip, explore the walking and cycling trails or simplymingle with the locals in town.
Home of the South Australian poet CJ Dennis, it is the perfect base for which to explore. You can even sit on the median strip in the Main Street and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee.
