Mainstreets and town centres, by their very nature, are all unique. In a world that seems to increasingly tend towards standardisation and homogenisation, this variety is what makes the mainstreet experience so refreshing.
This year there are 4 mainstreets and town centres in the running for the coveted People's Choice Award. Each of our vastly different nominees has its own unique style and offering, and they are all a testament to the variety and personality to be found in mainstreets and town centres all around South Australia. Before you cast your vote for the 2018 People's Choice Award read on for summaries about each of the nominees. When you are ready to vote CLICK HERE.
