Grant Cameron happily confesses that he “can’t look at something without pondering on the story behind it” and on SALife he’s enjoying the opportunity to juxtapose South Australia’s past with the present. In his ‘SALife and Times’ segments Grant heads out to the suburbs and into the archives in his search to uncover some interesting ‘state secrets’.

We've spent many years ‘on the road’ experiencing South Australia’s best tourism spots. If you’re heading out and about for a holiday, weekend away or even a day trip we hope our suggestions might inspire you to seek out something new and enrich your tourism experience.

Closer to home we search out new and interesting stories for viewers to discover around Adelaide such as unique design stores, cafes, wineries, vintage haunts and galleries.
