WHAT SHOULD I DO IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA?

1. Artisan Adelaide

This compact grid like city with its Mediterranean climate is known as the ‘20 minute city’, making everything within easy reach! Catch one of the free trams in this relaxed city or hire a bike to explore down by the river. Adelaide has delightful cafes and restaurants and is a wonderful city to shop in.

2. Wine Region of S.A.

If you are a wine-lover S.A is the place for you! There are an incredible 200 cellar doors within one hour of the city.  Stop at Barossa Valley, home of world-famous Jacob’s Creek and Wolf Blass. If you are driving up from Melbourne, stop off at Coonawarra on the Limestone Coast. We can organise a great 2/3 day wine & outback experience for you…a perfect extension to any Australian holiday.

3. Kangaroo Island

This is Australia’s 3rd largest island and its within easy reach of Adelaide…a half an hour flight or a 2 hour drive plus a 45 minute ferry crossing. This is one of Earth’s best nature destinations.  Walk along the boardwalk at Seal Bay for opportunities to spot sea lions playing and resting in the sand dunes.  Or join a tour to get closer to them on the beach. 

Next stop is Flinders Chase National Park; a huge wilderness area containing the highly photographed remarkable rocks. There are several hikes available here, with the opportunity to spot goannas, kangaroos, eagles, echidnas and koalas! 

Kangaroo Island Escorted Tours

Pack your hiking boots as there are many trails you can follow on Kangaroo Island ranging from a short 30 minutes to a full day 8 hour trek!  Afterwards, enjoy a platter and a glass of wine from a local vineyard.   There are plenty of adventure options; sand boarding, quad biking, cycling, fishing charters and boat tours…

4. Eyre Peninsula

Fly (50mins) or drive (7-8 hours) from Adelaide to the great outdoors to enjoy this food gem of a peninsula.  Swim in rockpools, walk across deserted beaches, gaze at stars overhead.  Come here for indigenous cultural experiences & if you’re feeling brave-shark cage swimming!

5. Flinders Ranges

It only takes 5 hours from Adelaide to reach this ancient outback landscape, known as one of the best self-drives in Australia. Witness eroded peaks & gorges on a 4x4 driving experience.  Catch a scenic flight to admire the spectacle of Wilpena Pound, a gigantic rim made from the stumps of eroded mountains.

6. Coober Pedy

A famous opal mining town in the outback where half the population live underground!  Head to the past in the Old Towners mine and discover how mining was carried out and how the miners lived.  See treasured opals & fossils then spend an afternoon walking along the heritage trail.  For a fantastic off the beaten track adventure, how about the Explorers Way which cuts right through the heart of Australia from Adelaide to Darwin.  We only recommend this epic drive from March to November.
