Abundant with native wildlife, engaging cultural history, delicious wine regions and a delightful laid-back charm. There is something for everyone to enjoy! We know you’ll find a sense of freedom and a rare connection to nature and to country as you embark on epic adventures through breathtaking landscapes.

Adelaide

The perfect city for food, wine, and art lovers. This sunny city will charm you with its laid-back atmosphere, vibrant buildings, and beautiful parklands. Full of local artisanal markets and stores where you can sample fresh produce and local delicacies. Enjoy some world class coffee, and the year round sun in the lush Adelaide Botanic Garden. No trip to Adelaide would be complete without exploring its surrounding wine regions. The Barossa Valley, just an hour’s drive away, is home to some of Australia’s best wineries, while the Adelaide Hills offer a more intimate and boutique experience. For a taste of coastal beauty, head to Glenelg Beach, where you can swim, sunbathe, or enjoy a seafood meal overlooking the Gulf St Vincent.

Kangaroo Island

For the ultimate wildlife adventures, you’ll want to visit Kangaroo Island. A wildlife wonderland and Australia’s third largest island, find roaming kangaroos, playful sea lions, sleepy koalas, and native birds. See graceful echidnas foraging in the national parks and penguin colonies waddling ashore. And not only that, the scenery will be some of the best you’ll see in the region. With dramatic cliffs, lush eucalyptus forests, ancient granite sculptures, as well as paradise beaches and refreshing turquoise seas to explore. What more could you want?

Eyre Peninsula

Welcome to the Eyre Peninsula, absolutely bursting with raw wilderness and breathtaking views and so many epic experiences to find. Visit Coffin Bay National Park for some of the best lookouts and coastal walks of the area. Have a play in the luxurious turquoise waters with vibrant coral reefs. Don’t forget to taste some world renowned oysters from the region that are utterly delightful. Towering dramatically above the ocean is the Bunda Cliffs, their red colour coming ablaze in the setting sun. You’ll feel like you’re on the edge of the world! The land is also steeped in so much rich history of the Aboriginal people with stories and ancient wisdom to take in, and interesting rock art to view. On top of everything else, the wildlife here is epic too, promising you an unforgettable visit.

Flinders Ranges

When you think of the outback, you may not think of South Australia. But a visit to the Flinders Ranges National Park is a staple of the outback experience. Rising from the heart of the landscape like weathered giants, imagine a land so rugged and ancient that geologists created a new era to signify the fossils found here. Rugged peaks and dramatic gorges over timeworn riverbeds, a trip to the Flinders Ranges will be an adventure you don’t forget in a hurry. It’s best to camp in these ranges, to really experience the serene nature and incredible starry skies of this timeless region.

Fleurieu Peninsula

Bathed in the golden glow of the South Australian sun, the Fleurieu Peninsula brings pristine beaches, coastal charm, and rolling vineyards together into one beautiful spot of land. On the coast, see dolphins playing in the turquoise waves and savour the year long sunny weather. Venture inland to explore world-renowned wine regions like McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek. For a taste of adventure, delve into the rugged beauty of Deep Creek National Park, where dramatic gorges carved by ancient rivers whisper tales of time. Hike through fragrant eucalyptus forests, kayak along tranquil waterways, and spot kangaroos bounding through the bush. Beyond the expected, the Fleurieu Peninsula surprises with unique experiences.
