South Australian Museum

The biggest accumulation of Indigenous Australian ornaments on the planet, the museum also has an uncommon historical centre where wood-and-glass cupboards have intuitive displays.

The Butterfly Room

The food is tasty and much lauded, yet what really takes this eatery to another plane is its stylistic theme. With warm lighting shining from suspended lampshades and inclined sky facing windows, the sparkling mounted tortoise shells and the eyes of different taxidermy large animals flash splendidly as you taste the food on your table. Reminiscent of the Victorian time, the Singapore Room resembles venturing into a storybook.

Many walls containing a splendid shading range of dead butterflies look down at you with the dead insect eyes as you walk around the place. Emphasized in warm gold and red, these butterflies are divided in numerical bunches and leave you flooded with the vibe which belongs to an era of British Colonialism in Asia, or some other who are nauseous, a thousand bug eyes watching them eat.

Every year since, the exact date the incident occurred, the South Australians come back to the site and watch Proclamation Day, and the present senator rehashes the decree made by the inaugural representative, Captain John Hindmarsh, in 1836. The first gum tree is dead now, yet the rotted husk was covered in a concrete back in 1963 to protect its shape for the upcoming generations of South Australians.
