Why do they even need to travel to Adelaide to play eSports?
Because it happens like a giant LAN party.
There's spectators as well.

Great that Hyatt are returning, wish it could have been around 140 - 150m but agreed good to bulk up the skyline with a 100+. So adding to the list we'll have: Hyatt QT Sofitel Adelaide Oval Crowne Plaza Sky City Westin Wyndham The existing ones are going to feel the pinch. Plus Tribe, Tryp, Travel...

Re: Disneyland Adelaide

15 million tourists? Australia doesn't even get 10 million international tourists. South Australia barely 500,000 international tourists. :lol:
Australia isn't projected to reach 15 million international tourists until 202/7.

surely a troll account?

[U/C] Re: Northern Connector | 14km | $1b

With bits of MATS basically built in some form or another, most of the rest should be built in some form or another as well. A second motorway/freeway running north/north east should be built, as the northern suburbs will be where most of our new population growth will happen and it's too wide of a...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

can't see this happening for another 30 years minimum. once the NS motorway is complete all the trucks coming off the SE freeway will go straight down cross road. no point them going onto portrush road. then we'll have the next major bottleneck especially at the Belair line crossing. make yourself ...

A Qantas 747 (flight QFA1364) just flew past my work window on approach to Adelaide AP, (coming from Rockhampton Previous to that it flew an odd looking track from Sydney to Rockhampton this morning). Some kind of special charter flight? Not often you see a Qantas widebody gracing our skies these d...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

There is other investments to make other than property. The tax makes those holding more land than they need to live pay society for the land withheld from the society that gives the land its value. It also prevents inflating house prices due to lack of land supply. If property is such a poor inves...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

So for a comparison to your 2x $450,000 houses, what would be the land tax on a single $900,000 house? Is the answer different for commercial, industrial or rural land? I understand it does not get applied to the house you live in (or have I missed something else?). Council rates scale linearly, as...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

The deductions arent as significant as some think. The point is you have one house you pay $300 lets say. How do they justify then charging you $4500 for two houses of similar value? Yes its coming down, but that doesn't mean its at an acceptable level. If you tax mum and dad investors, your ordinar...
