Exhilarating activities and a vast array of memorable experiences await every visitor of South Australia. Escape the bustling resorts and jam-packed cities, and venture out to South Australia’s naturistic side, with its breathtaking sceneries, distinctive wildlife, and broad spaces. It isn’t hard to find one’s own thrilling journey when you have a rented truck or join the vast amount of enjoyable coach tours. With South Australia’s temperate climate, you will get to enjoy the outdoor and relaxed ambiance, combining with some of the world’s most exclusive wildlife sanctuary.
How could you pass up the opportunity to swim the turquoise clear waters surrounded by great giants of the blue, or rock climb the gorgeous rugged mountains, or explore their mind-blowing caves, or maybe just get into a hot air balloon and enjoy a different but delightful point of view?
Get in touch with nature as South Australia presents itself with being one of the few places in the world where you can find enormous tracts of land untouched by humans, investigate the wilderness, ocean regions, and outback (but of course always with the help of qualified eco-tourism operators), and chase your passion for flora and gardens, birdwatching, and fossils!
South Australia is also the foundation of innumerable iconic wine districts such as Coonawarra, Barossa, Clare Valley, McLaren Vale, Riverland, and Adelaide Hills, just to name a few. Every winery contains cellar doors that open up to meet the maker and the chance to taste high-grade wines. Your taste buds don’t stop there, as they continue on to exquisite regional gastronomy, dining in first-class restaurants and getting the season’s finest at the farmers markets.
Home to Tandanya; get a peek of the Aboriginal culture, through guided walks that takes it’s visitors to the National Aboriginal Cultural Institute, and the South Australian Museum where you can find the biggest collection of Aboriginal artifacts. Events such as Adelaide Fringe, Adelaide Festival of Arts, and WOMAdelaide, offers a year-round schedule of arts and celebrations to adore.
A few hours north of Adelaide, South Australia’s outback is literally just outback. Lying beneath a huge sky and land rising up to prehistoric peaks of the Flinders Ranges, the outback is where you can have an adventure and discover the legends of Aboriginal times, while hydrating with a cold beer in a small pub recovering from the dryness.
Finally, we have the Murray River of South Australia that gives an astonishing retreat for relaxation that includes magnificent sunsets underneath ancient cliffs, crisp morning air, and serene activities such as fishing, and lazy afternoon barbecues. Everything about South Australia is with a doubt a wonderful combination that’ll make it all worth the visit.
