Briony Hume sips her way through history at Seppeltsfield. The landmark winery was a natural choice for the recent Royal visit, with its unbroken lineage of Tawny stretching back to 1878. But you don’t have to be of Royal bloodline to sample such a collection, Briony signs up for a “Moments in History” tasting, a flight of five carefully selected fortified vintages starting with 1977, the year that Elvis died and culminating in 1912, the year the Titanic sank.
The Courts complex building on the corner of Gouger Street and Victoria Square is one of the places where South Australians come for justice…But a hundred years ago, they had another reason to come here – to shop!

Now 100 years on, Grant Cameron tells the tale of the Moore’s Department Store, a landmark building that rose from the ashes.
