Fritz Magazine is celebrating its one-year anniversary and we wanted to shout out a massive thank you to all of South Australia. We decided to go back to our first and last issue’s front cover – the iconic Adelaide Oval. From the roof to be specific.
It’s been a massive first year for us and we couldn’t choose a better location. The Adelaide Oval is the beating heart of so many South Australian memories and experiences. Cover artist Donovan Christie captured this beautifully: from the old scoreboard on issue four to the blue and white dream of issue one.
Whether it’s shooting the fritz with Anne Wills, talking all things Star Wars with avid collectors or stepping into the colourful closet of Dorinda Hafner – we’ve loved every minute. A special thank you to Foodland Supermarkets for being our distribution partner – mighty South Aussies indeed.
We live in an incredible state and it has been our absolute joy and pleasure to share your stories. Thanks for opening your doors, hearts and stories for us – we wouldn’t be here without you. We hope you have a happy and safe festive season, and Fritz will see you in the new year, with a brand spanking new edition. Thanks Adelaide, and thank you South Australia. Here’s to another year of celebrating you.
Adelaide Oval Roof Climb
Take on the icon at Adelaide Oval with a roof climb – we can heartily recommend it for the views alone. Expert and knowledgeable local guides will take you up and fill you in on the history of Adelaide Oval and surrounds. Our humble oval has a fascinating history, it once housed a velodrome, and played host to hockey, lacrosse, baseball and archery among others. International musical greats like David Bowie, Elton John, Paul McCartney and most recently Adele all performed here, offering something for non-sports fans in South Australia.
The roof climb lasts approximately two hours and you get a hat and happy snap at the end, too. If you fancy it, you can get up there for a match day, whatever your flavour (cricket or football), take a day or twilight climb and even have a fabulous dining experience (and a glass of local plonk to calm nerves) post climb at the Hill of Grace Restaurant. It really is an incredible experience – and makes for some seriously special warm, fuzzy feelings as you gaze over our beautiful city.
Special thanks to Adelaide Oval for allowing the Fritz crew the opportunity to climb the icon.
