South Australia boasts a wide variety of environments, from spectacular coastline and long sandy beaches to the red sands of the outback and majestic mountain ranges of the Flinders, all within relatively close reach.
Adelaide, South Australia’s capital and Australia’s first city of free settlers or landed gentry, has an air of pride with wide streets, colonial architecture and abundant parklands.
Australia’s wine heartland is on the doorstep of Adelaide and midway to the accessible Outback of the magnificent Flinders Ranges. The Barossa Valley boasts over 150 years of tradition and culture, fuelled by centuries of European experience. While the entire region is renowned for its luscious shiraz, the cooler climate produces the best rieslings in Australia.
Head north into the South Australian Outback and immerse yourself in the varied habitats of the Flinders Ranges. From dry creek beds, isolated waterholes lined with 1,000 year old river red gums, craggy ridge lines and rolling hills covered in cypress pines to the ancient ramparts of Wilpena Pound, this is some of the most quintessential countryside in Australia.
