Our pick of the best experiences in South Australia

South Australia is bursting with culture, wildlife encounters, exceptional food and wine, events and entertainment.

The adventurous will love going Opal Mining in Coober Pedy, or in search of Dinosaur fossils in the ancient Flinders Ranges. For something truly special, take part in one of Australia’s Great walks traversing the ancient Flinders Ranges and the private Arkaba Conservancy.

To really get off the beaten track, staying on a sheep station is a fantastic experience. Eyre Peninsula has 2,000 kilometres of wild and unpopulated coastline, which boasts pods of dolphins some 80 strong! Alternatively, head to Baird Bay and hang out with the wild sea lions, or go shark cage diving with Great Whites out of Port Lincoln.

The capital city of Adelaide is charming and a short drive from some of the best wineries in the world, South Australia being home to 18 wine regions. Succumb to temptation of the Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Coonawarra, McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills.
