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.

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.
