If Australia’s eastern shores are the busiest parts of the country, South Australia boasts some of the most laid-back areas. For starters, the capital—Adelaide—has only a small fraction of residents compared to Sydney or Brisbane.
Most of the population hugs the edge of the Great Australian Bight, especially in the south-easternmost bits. But that just means you’re in for some unadulterated nature almost everywhere else you go. Here you’ll find some of the country’s driest spots, the Flinders Mountain Ranges and that famous Red Centre among them. Cowboys, farmers and miners make up the backbone of the state…oh, along with vintners, since some of Australia’s best wines are born here.
So slow down. Take your time. Eat, drink and explore. Our South Australia holiday packages are ready when you are. Pack your cowboy hat and giddy up! Stuff to Do
Okay, so the Great Australian Bight isn’t the Great Barrier Reef, but it does have some awesome dive sites. It’s also home to the rare leafy sea dragon—you’re going to want to want a waterproof camera case for these babies. Of course, there’s always the option to just have a swim or lounge in the sand on holidays to South Australia.
If you’re more of a mountain lover, check out the Flinders Ranges. They start around Port Augusta and travel halfway up the state. You could travel up, down and over them on your own walkabout. Don’t forget to pack a few protein bars! City Life
Of course, you don’t need to spend every moment ofSouth Australia packages away from civilisation.Head back to Adelaide to get your city sophistication on. You’ll still have plenty of nature to gawk at, since the city centre is surrounded by parks. Plus, enjoy historic hotels and other buildings, government buildings (Adelaide is the statecapital) and the most important building of all: The Casino.
When you’re hungry, head to Rundle Street or Henley Beach for some grub. Order a glass of wine with your meal, because the grapes are close and the vintages are world-renowned. Where to Visit
Ready to head out again? Grab some wheels from one of our Adelaide car hire options and put the pedal to the metal. Check out Fleurieu Peninsula, where a lot of people end up spending their SA holidays. Hang ten and get even closer to the grapes of the McLaren Vale wine region.
Take a few bottles of red and head to the nation’s Red Centre. Kick up that rust-coloured dust in Tallaringa or watch the birds land at Lake Eyre.
If island life is what’s missing from this trip, check out Kangaroo Island. Bask in the natural beauty and drop a line in the ocean to catch your dinner.
There’s natural beauty pretty much everywhere in this state. That’s why you need to explore it all with Wotif’s South Australia holidays. Not ready to take such a big“bight” out of the country yet?
