Kangaroo Island
Fleurieu Peninsula
Barossa Valley
Murray River

From the charming blend of Adelaide historic buildings, wide streets, parklands, shops and restaurants it's the city where you can experience the buzz, culture and convenience of a big city without the frustrations. Adelaide known as the '20-minute city' you can experience it all on a series of easy short walks.

On the outskirts of Adelaide is the beachside suburb of Glenelg with its beach, jetty, shops, cafes, historic settlement and Great White Shark Experience. The Adelaide Hills, with its wineries and produce farms offers welcome respite in country air to investigate historic townships and enjoy heritage accommodation properties with stunning gardens.

The Barossa Valley is renown for its world class wine production with the well know wineries of Jacob's Creek and Wolf Blass and the less known boutique wineries of Seize the Day and Outlaw Wines. Take the time to experience this beautiful countryside while sampling the many wine cellar offerings.

A must see and do - Kangaroo Island Australia remains one of the most unspoilt natural wonders of the world. You'll find seals basking on quiet beaches; koalas munching on gum trees; echidnas wandering in search of insects; and kangaroos, goannas, wallabies, penguins and birds at just about every turn. With a wealth of history to discover, unique art galleries to browse, incredible pristine beaches to explore, yearly events such as the motor fest and carnival there is never a dull moment on Kangaroo Island

Fleurieu Peninsula - beautiful, bald hills sweep down to sun-drenched beaches. Wineries, orchards and pastures are patch-worked between bushland; and quiet roads lead to wine tasting cellars where you can sit back and take it all in. And it's all less than 40 minutes from Adelaide. Towns in the area include Victor Harbour, Goolwa, and the wine region of McLaren Vale. A ferry also travels between Cape Jervis, at the tip of the peninsula, and Kangaroo Island.

Hop on a houseboat and cruise the Murray River that runs through the eastern side of South Australia before trailing along the New South Wales and Victoria border. Much of the land has been enriched by the Murray River and has produced a good fruit and wine growing area. The River land area has many small towns that you can visit along the Murray boasting of their wineries, art galleries, fine dining as well as a wealth of history. Wildlife abounds including darters, herons and egrets feeding along the river's muddy edges and short-beaked echidnas, pygmy possums, dunnarts, kangaroos and lizards at the Ngarkat group of conservation parks

The Flinders ranges is a rugged landscape and considered part of the Australian outback. From desert landscapes to aboriginal rock art to wetlands teaming with wildlife to fossicking for opals, there is something here for everyone to experience. 4WD tours are highly recommended. Fly over scenic tours are another option of taking in this stunning landscape.
