Don't Miss These Must-Do Activities in South Australia

Don't Miss These Must-Do Activities in South Australia

From scenic river valleys to patchwork vineyards and dramatic coastal cliffs, South Australia—and its cosmopolitan capital, Adelaide—serves as the gateway to the Outback. Whatever time of year you plan to visit, there’s no time like the present to book your trip. Here are a few experiences you should not miss.

Sample South Australia Wines Wine tasting makes for a popular day trip from Adelaide. The Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale wine regions produce some of Australia’s best award-winning wines. Tour the vineyards and visit the cellar doors of top wineries while you sample the signature varietals, often paired with local foods.

Spot Wildlife on Kangaroo Island The sweeping dunes, sandy beaches, and thick forests of Kangaroo Island make it renowned for an incredible variety of wildlife. Common sightings include koalas, wallabies, sea lions, fur seals, southern right whales—and, or course, plenty of kangaroos. Guided day trips and multi-day itineraries include conservation parks and wildlife sanctuaries.

Hit the Murray River Cruising along the Murray River on an authentic paddle wheeler takes you into the heart of Aussie life. A typical journey gets you up close to ancient rock carvings with insights on Aboriginal culture. Don’t forget wildlife spotting, sheep shearing demos, riverside wine tasting, and a requisite barbie (Aussie slang for barbecue).

Explore Adelaide Adelaide serves as a strategic starting point for trips to Uluru (Ayer’s Rock) and Australia’s Red Centre, or escaping to the Outback on a tour to the Flinders Ranges. The Festival City itself has much to offer as well, from the Adelaide Zoo to the Adelaide Central Market. Opt for a sightseeing tour paired with a cruise on the River Torrens.
