Archer's Arcadia & Smurfs (Glenelg & Adelaide) [Apr. 8th, 2016|07:06 pm]

Thursday 17 March: Archer's Arcadia & Smurfs (Glenelg & Adelaide)

Another day another time zone, flew from Perth to Adelaide that morning;  collected by Simon sister and we went from the airport to visit Glenelg.
 First stop was the wacky wonderful David Archer Arcadia, something we spotted on Atlas Obscura and it was even bigger and better than expected.
Arcade chock-full of old timey, whimsical, hand-cranked automata and peepshows
Skeleton fortune tellers; steampunk bubble blowing pig; weird paintings; haunted houses; vampire fleas and new old fashion seaside arcade games to play with
From modern to the original
Upstairs in the town hall was the Bay Discovery Centre also had some original automatons from their old piers and other bits and piece's
Back to Simon sister house  in Adelaide to sleep surrounded by  hundreds of  Smurfs and Wallaces & Gromits
