Earthly delights

Celebrate the diverse range of flavours, culture, wildlife and landscapes on offer as you explore this beautiful state. With lush green valleys, rugged ancient plains, cosmopolitan cityscapes and wide stretches of incredible coastline, South Australia is a revelation.
After sampling the refined elegance of Adelaide, venture back in time to the 540 million-year-old Wilpena Pound landscape. The sheer magnitude of this extraordinary place will stay with you forever. The delights of the world-class Clare and Barossa Valley wine regions await as you sample the finest reds and whites and discover the intricacies of wine-making. The wonders keep coming when you arrive on Kangaroo Island. Cheese, honey and even more wine can be found here, along with an incredible variety of wildlife – sea lions and little penguin colonies, migrating whales and rare birdlife, wallabies, echidnas and plenty of kangaroos and koalas.
