South Australia

A heritage state and world leader in wine making, South Australia fuses the historic with the best of contemporary culture, evident in its calendar of internationally-renowned events. Its love of food and festivals is only eclipsed by its love of sport and South Australia's prowess in football and cricket sees it host several major national finals. From the Clare Valley and Barossa Valley to the Murraylands, Flinders Ranges and the outback, South Australia will quench your thirst for travel experiences.

Also within easy reach of Adelaide is the stunning Fleurieu Peninsula encompassing the gulf beaches south of the capital. The coastal towns offer jetties, reefs and beaches, traditional country pubs and fantastic fish and chips. Surrounded by sheer cliffs and steep coastal ranges, the tiny cove of Second Valley is one of the delights of the region. Popular for fishing, swimming, snorkelling and scuba diving, the destination also offers easy walking trails through unique rock formations.

Adelaide is a city of great visual harmony and has a classical elegant style, superbly set beside the River Torrens between the Adelaide Hills and waters of Gulf St Vincent. Colonel William Light got it right in 1837 when he laid out his broad streets and surrounded them with a generous green cushion of parkland. The result is a place where traffic seldom jams, the inner-city highlights are all an easy walk away and it's virtually impossible to get lost. Within minutes of arriving in Adelaide you'll soon realise that it's not trying to be some other place. It has its own quiet confident air of individuality that gives it instant appeal.
