What to do in South Australia

(add your ideas here).

Kangaroo Island

Nature lovers with the money to spare (it's expensive) will love a trip to Kangaroo Island. With few non-native predators, wildlife flourishes. You'll need to spend at least two days on the Island to see the main attractions. See Kangaroo Island tourism website

Whale watch at the Head of the Bight

Arguably the best place to see whales in Australia. It's a long trip to a remote part of the country, but the rewards are worth it. (May-Oct) See Eyre Peninsula tourism website

Cleland Conservation Park

Just 12 km from Adelaide City centre, Cleland Conservation Park conserves a vital area of natural bushland on the Adelaide Hills face and includes the internationally popular Cleland Wildlife Park, the viewing platform of Mt Lofty Summit and scenic Waterfall Gully. The area has a rich history of Aboriginal occupation and European settlement. See Cleland Conservation Park

Barossa Valley

The Barossa is located approximately 70 kilometres North East of Adelaide and is one of Australias most famous wine regions. The region owes much of its appeal to the European peasant farmers and English free settlers who made the place home from the 1850s. Take a winery tour in a limousine or vintage car, or float above the valley in a hot-air balloon. Wake up in the Barossa after spending the night in a restored settler's cottage, a resort suite, a luxurious country house or a shady caravan park. Sample German wursts and cakes in heritage bakeries and butcher stores as you follow the Barossa's Butcher, Baker, Winemaker Trail. And get right into the swing of things at one of the 100 events making up the biennial Barossa Vintage Festival. See Barossa Valley
