- Getting to South Australia
Vast swathes of ochre outback, dramatic coastline, world-class wineries and historic towns and cities – you’ll find it all in South Australia.
South Australia has made a name for itself as a relaxed region full of wine, wildlife and natural wonder. Soak up the capital of Adelaide's sophisticated art and dining scene, taste classic Australian drops in undulating wine regions and watch koalas snooze among island treetops.
Internationally renowned for its production of fine wines, a trip to South Australia's undulating wine country is a must. But the state is also blessed with azure waters, arid outback and unique natural attractions that will impress and confound. It's an incredible place to explore the outdoors, while never having to sacrifice life's little luxuries.
- Unwind with spectacular wines from the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills
- Swim with sea lions, dolphins and giant cuttlefish on the Eyre Peninsula
- Discover epic nature and abundant wildlife in the Flinders Ranges or on Kangaroo Island
Adelaide is the most accessible hub to explore South Australia’s diverse regions.
You can fly to Adelaide from many international destinations, as well as all Australian capital cities. If you’re coming from Melbourne, don’t miss the opportunity to traverse one of Australia’s most famous road trips – the Great Ocean Road. Or for an epic outback adventure, embark on the iconic Explorers Way road trip from the Northern Territory's Darwin to Adelaide.
