South Australia

Find something for everyone

South Australia might claim to be the country's wine capital, however it blends more than just grapes and wine. Start in the state's capital, Adelaide, with a vibrant mix of arts, culture, fine dining and delicious local wines. Laid back and relaxed, it sets the tone for what else is in store. Even though it's the driest state in Australia, the locals escape the heat at many of the spectacular beaches with clear, turquoise waters. If it's wildlife you're after, head to Kangaroo Island, a unique wildlife sanctuary where you can get up close and personal with the locals. Head inland and you'll encounter the same warm, friendly spirit that's earned the locals a reputation for being some of the most welcoming in the country.
