Port Adelaide: home of tumbleweed

The Port Adelaide Derive Top Five:

1. It’s a sea shanty kind of town; if there were people to sing them! It’s got potential. It’s obviously an industrial area and one of the deep sea ports of Australia (think Melbourne Docklands, Wollongong, Newcastle etc). Unlike places like Newie, there’s still the essence of the sea; narrow cobble stone streets, with terraces on either side; colonial shops covered with wide traditional Australian verandahs and (most importantly) pubs on every corner. At 2pm on a Saturday, the key component to this scene that was missing, was people.
