Adelaide

Surrounded by parklands Adelaide is easy to get around. The city rises from the middle of a tree- covered plain, between rolling hills 15 minutes to the east and beaches 20 minutes to the west. Stroll along the North Terrace and visit the many art galleries and museums. Explore more than 700 restaurants, cafés and pubs, serving food from around the world.

Wine Regions

South Australia has a vast diversity in geography and climate which allows the state to be able to produce a range of grape varieties-from the cool climate Riesling variety in the Clare Valley to the big, full bodied Shiraz wines of the Barossa Valley.

Kangaroo Island

Kangaroo Island surprisingly diverse is a pristine wilderness - a place that has offered protection to substantial populations of native Australian animals, a place of beauty and a place of escape. If you traverse its 155km length you'll find soaring cliffs, dense bushland, towering sand dunes, wetlands and untouched white beach. Friendly - each season brings new life and spectacular changes in landscape colours.

Flinders Ranges

Flinders Ranges is the largest mountain range in South Australia, some 350km north of Adelaide. Stretching for over 430 km, Its most characteristic landmark is Wilpena Pound, a large natural amphitheatre covering nearly 80 square kilometers containing the range's highest peak, St Mary Peak at 1,170 m. The southern parts of the ranges are notable for the Pichi Richi scenic railway and Mount Remarkable National Park.

The Ranges are particularly renowned for the Ediacara Hills, north-west of Leigh Creek.This was the site of discovery in 1946 of some of the oldest fossil evidence of animal life.

The first humans to inhabit the Flinders Ranges were the Adnyamathana people (meaning ‘hill people’ whose descendants still reside in the area). Cave paintings, rockengravings and other artifacts indicate that the Adnyamathana people have lived in the Flinders Ranges for tens of thousands of years.

Lake Eyre

Found some 700km from Adelaide Lake Eyre actually consists of 2 lakes connected by the Goyders Channel and is the lowest point in Australia, approximately 15m below sea level. It covers a surface area of some 10,000 square kilometers, Lake Eyre can be dry for many years on end, with picturesque white salt around the banks and a white blanket of salt as far as the eye can see. The best way to get the full impact of itsvastness is to fly over it.

The main tributaries into the lake are the Diamantina and Georgina river systems and the Cooper creek. During the monsoon season these rivers will determine whether water reaches the lake. It can take 6 to 10 weeks for the water to reach Lake Eyre.

Eyre & Yorke Peninsula

A rugged, spectacular and untamed coast, the Eyre Peninsula is home to the world’s best seafood. The main towns are Port Lincolnon the southern point, Whyalla and Port Augusta at the north east, and Ceduna at the northwest.

The major industry is farming - cereal crops, sheep, and cattle in the drier north and more water-intensive activities such as dairy farming and a growing wine industry in the south. Many coastal towns have commercial fishing, in particular Port Lincoln. Oyster production was established in the 1980s and occurs in several bays around the peninsula.

Coober Pedy & Outback

In the opal mining outpost of Coober Pedy, half the population lives in underground dugouts to escape high temperatures in summer. It's a fascinating and friendly place to visit, Only in Coober Pedy will you find underground hotels, restaurants, bars, an underground church, and a golf course without a blade of grass. Coober Pedy has some 4000 residents from more than 40 countries.

Coober Pedy produces most of the world's opals. Its opal fields, discovered in 1913 by 14-year-old Willie Hutchison, cover an area of 4,954square kilometers and consist of 70 individual fields.

There's also a host of awesome natural landscapes, including the Painted Desert, the MoonPlain and the Breakaways. These great desert locations have attracted film makers from around world, for movies including 'Fire in the Stone', 'Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome', 'Ground Zero', and 'Pitch Black'.
