Embracing Brighton’s seaside vibes
For those of you who have yet to venture past Adelaide’s Barossa Valley, allow us introduce you to Brighton – a seaside suburb where relaxation is the name of the game. A town that is characterised by its beach, Art Deco style, quirky cafes and stores filled with locally-made goods, this is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. But a visit to Brighton wouldn’t be complete without a stop at Brighton Jetty.
First built in 1886, the jetty has long been a mainstay of the town, and a great spot to watch the sun set over the water. Unfortunately though in 1994, a bad year of winter storms meant the structure took a large amount of damage – leading a mobile phone service provider to intervene and provide funds to help repair and rebuild what was left of the jetty. That’s why if you look closely, you’ll notice a large mobile tower located towards the end of it. Or maybe you were too distracted by the simply stunning views. Can’t say we blame you.
