South Australia bundles together several quintessentially Australian ingredients: Outback, winelands, an urbane city in Adelaide, beaches, and coastal national parks with celebrated surf breaks. Then there’s Kangaroo Island, a veritable open-air menagerie where endemic wildlife thrives, fearless and untamed, like nowhere else in the country. Through time spent living in South Australia, and thanks to many return trips, our specialists have built up a deep knowledge of the region. They can design you a vacation to South Australia that takes in not only its highlights, but also its not-so-obvious quirks. They’ll also tell you there’s vast potential for some real one-off experiences in this segment of Australia.
You could visit the wine-producing towns of the Barossa Valley, who’ve proudly maintained their German migrant heritage. Glide along the languid Murray River, and spot sea lions on the Eyre Peninsula. Or, go glamping in Gawler Ranges National Park. All our specialists share a passion for Australia’s native species, and they’ll pass on their recommendations for the best tours and guided experiences to help you encounter Kangaroo Island’s inhabitants, including rarer species such as the glossy black cockatoo. And, they’ll point you toward the region’s complex geology and rock formations — exemplified by the Flinders Ranges’ crater-like Wilpena Pound.
