From celebrations of Indigenous artists to new culinary partnerships to sea cruises, here are five things on our radar at the moment in the T Australia office.
Take a Tour at Hardys Tintara
Discover the hidden secrets of a 165-year-old cellar door through two new intriguing site tours of this iconic McLaren Vale winery. Not only do these guided tours allow visitors to see state-of the-art wine-making techniques up close, but they also lift the lid on the fascinating and curious stories, characters and events that have shaped Hardys Tintara into what it is today.
Aṉangu Women Artists Celebrated in New Touring Exhibition
The Art Gallery of South Australia has announced that its acclaimed Tarnanthi program will be presented on a national touring exhibition, starting this October. Kungka Kuṉpu (Strong Women) is a showcase of major contemporary works by celebrated women artists from the Aṉangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands. Through major contemporary works by more than 60 Aṉangu women artists, Kungka Kuṉpu features works that centre on caring for Country, mapping significant sites and life sustaining practices of the desert, while also sharing complex narratives surrounding family obligations and relationships.
The travelling exhibition launches in Bowral on 22 October 2022 before touring across Australia until 2024. For full tour dates and locations, visit agsa.sa.gov.au
A New Culinary Partnership We’ll Cheers To
Sydney-born celebrity chef Dan Churchill has joined forces with Feels Botanical as partner, major investor and “culinary creative”. While Australia got to know Churchill through MasterChef, the chef, restauranteur and best-selling cookbook author has gone on to create a burgeoning presence in the global culinary and health scenes, including partnering with Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky on their CENTR app as the chef and nutrition and fitness expert.
The Feels Botanical Eau De Vie comes in a range of four flavours, each released in limited batches of 2,000 bottles. A unique fruit-based spirit with ancient French origins and a name that translates directly to “water of life”, Feels Botanical’s eau-de-vie is grain-free, gluten-free and preservative-free with no added sugar. All ingredients are sustainably sourced – think quandong, kakadu plum, ginseng and horny goat weed. Find your local stockist at feelsbotanical.com.au

A Stunning Temporary Dining Experience
Pt. Leo Estate has opened the doors to Pt. Leo Pavilion, a temporary dining space that will serve a bountiful shared-style menu inspired by the local Mornington Peninsula region and community. The Pavilion will be open seven days for lunch, as well as for dinner on Saturday evenings. On weekends the Pt. Leo Estate Cellar Door welcomes visitors to enjoy over the counter ‘snackettes’, and on Saturday nights, a Champagne, cocktail and caviar bar.
Whilst the Pt. Leo Pavilion is a temporary space, it stuns with contemporary chairs and tables, natural furnishings, striking lighting pieces and sculpture art including the inspiring “Droplets” (2011) by Jane Valentine. The Pavilion will run through until the relaunch of Laura and the Pt. Leo restaurant later in the year after a fire damaged the premises in May. Make your booking at ptleoestate.com.au
