Places to Visit

South Australia is home to long summers, stunning beaches and award-winning wine, events and festivals. It’s the gateway to the Barossa, Flinders Ranges and Outback and Kangaroo Island.

South Australia is jam packed with not to be missed destinations including:

 
Other must see attractions include:


Barossa

Known as Adelaide's wine capital, this is where the locals go to get away from the fast-paced city life and enjoy wandering around vineyards, cellars and cosy lanes with quaint shops filled with delicacies and fine art. The three major towns of the Barossa all have distinctive personalities. Tanunda is generally recognised as the most German of the three with long-standing traditions dating back to the 1840s when the first German settlers arrived in the area. Angaston, in contrast, is considered the English town as it was settled predominantly by Cornish miners and others from Britain. The third and largest town, Nuriootpa, was influenced by both the German and British settlers, and today is the commercial hub of the Barossa where most of the larger stores are located. Make sure you visit Lyndoch Lavender Farm which is well known throughout the area, and everyone should taste the delights of The Lavender Kitchen.

Kangaroo Island

Australia's third largest island is only two hours from Adelaide and accessible by ferry. Not surprisingly, you will find plenty of kangaroos on the island, plus penguins, seals, koalas and many other animals. There are lighthouses dotting the island as well as numerous walking trails. A must-do is the uninhabited Flinders Chase National Park, home to the bizarre Remarkable Rocks and the Admirals Arch. A viewing platform and boardwalk around a cliff face leads visitors to the Admiral's Arch, sculpted by weathering and erosion from the sea over thousands of years.

McLaren Vale
Bursting with passionate locals who strive to maintain a reputation forged by their predecessors, the McLaren Vale is that rare breed of place that combines cosmopolitan lifestyle with earthy charm. Whether you want to relax and escape the rush of everyday life, or experience a holiday filled with adventure, the region has an abundance of activities and attractions for you.

McLaren Vale is a favourite South Australian wine region and has more than 70 cellar doors. The region’s warm climate means it produces great Shiraz, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.

Other varietals include Tempranillo, Viognier, Marsanne, Rousanne, Barbera and Sangiovese. It's less than an hour from Adelaide city. McLaren Vale also has stunning beaches and magnificent food.

Adelaide Hills

The Adelaide Hills are part of the Mount Lofty Ranges, east of the city of Adelaide. They are centred on the largest town in the area, Mount Barker, a thriving residential, commercial and service centre of excellence for the Adelaide Hills. Here you will find a state of the art cinema complex, a good caravan park, linear trails, recreation parks, sporting complexes, swimming pool, restaurants, cafes, coffee houses, and all the services that you may need while on tour. Hahndorf is 10min drive from Mount Barker, and is the oldest surviving German settlement in Australia, and home to the famous Farm Barn, a unique blend of a children's farmyard and Wildlife Park. Less than half an hour away, you can visit Lobethal, which offers great weekend markets and a costume museum. In Beerenberg, you can also indulge in some strawberry picking.
