This doesn't look fantastic for the next years vintage. Having said that, just look how well last years turned out given the exceptional weather.

Agreed, but it is also the centre for Wine Tourism, a swiftly developing attraction for The Chinese.
Adelaide's Chinatown Redevelopment Strategy

Adelaide is the jewel in the crown of South Australia, and is the first and last vision that visitors have of this great state. It is what drives investment to the state, particularly in the areas of mining, tourism, agriculture and manufacturing.

The heart of any city is undoubtedly the food district; it is a place where people congregate, trade, live life and engages. This is where the true vibrancy of a city emerges. In Adelaide our food district is the Chinatown precinct. The true heart of the city may be known as Chinatown but it really represents a broad cross section of our multicultural community and the wider community soaking up the atmosphere and cosmopolitan vibrancy of the wider Chinatown precinct.The benefits for South Australia are lucrative and far reaching. They include increased tourism and investment, an increased residential linkage to business, the greater salability to overseas investors and prestigious partnerships with other cities in Asia. By tapping into great opportunities that already exist we can better utilize Chinatown as a conduit to Asia.Adelaide City Councils vision for Chinatown should reflect the broad value it offers South Australia. The City of Sydney Council is a great example of how to do it. Chinatown Public Domain Plan is fully underway after working with the community to develop a strategy for redevelopment.

The visualisations above are just two of the Sydney's Chinatown streets receiving a facelift. Adelaide City Council should look to Sydney's excellence and adopt a similar strategy. Worldwide, Chinatown’s are considered significant centers of food, family, commerce and tourism. You only need to consider the inspiration and success of other Chinatowns around the world like San Francisco, New York, Vancouver and Sydney to imagine how Adelaide’s wider Chinatown precinct can be improved upon. There is an incredible opportunity to build upon the energy and ideas of previous ACC leaders to make our Chinatown the best in Australia.

Ha ha....I am SURE that some would take this lightheartedness seriously!!
These were posted on an Australian tourism website and the answers are the actual responses by the website officials, who obviously have a great sense of humour (not to mention a low tolerance threshold for cretins!).

Have you EVER visited South Australia's Eyre Peninsula?

Here's a video I edited for the South Australian Tourism Commission showing off this beautiful region.

Special Thanks to the South Australian Tourism Commission for allowing me to post the clip and to Hypervision for shooting amazing pictures.
