South Australia

A State of Contrast

An abundance of free roaming native Australian wildlife on Kangaroo Island, the ‘Big Five of the Ocean’ in the Eyre Peninsula, rugged Outback landscapes and mountain ranges in the Flinders Ranges and the best food and wine in Oz; South Australia has a huge amount to offer and it’s all within easy reach from the vibrant capital city of Adelaide.

How to get there

Want to have a full-on outback experience? Drive from Darwin to Adelaide or vice versa and make a pit-stop at Uluru.
