A delight to your senses, South Australia is renowned for its culture and gourmet cuisine. Its natural wonders are revealed as you sample world-class wines and local produce in the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale and explore the untamed majesty of Kangaroo Island. Adelaide has a cosmopolitan feel and is home to vibrant food and art scenes.
Adelaide: The gateway to South Australia
The gateway to South Australia, inviting Adelaide has something for all tastes. Wander beside the seaside in Glenelg, immerse yourself in the foodie culture at the central markets, or explore the hallowed Adelaide Oval. Often referred to as the ‘City of Churches,’ the city has undergone a cultural revolution that will keep you coming back for more.
One of the most picturesque islands off the coast of mainland Australia is Kangaroo Island. Small, but with plenty to offer, here is an opportunity help this community recover and once again flourish after being ravaged by bushfires. Re-opened to travellers in August 2020, with green shoots beginning to blanket the landscape, Kangaroo Island is a real treat for lovers of food and nature.
Wineries and local specialties
Adelaide is one of the nine exceptional wine capitals of the world, with both the Barossa and McLaren Vale found on Adelaide’s doorstep. The Barossa is most famous for its Shiraz and its reputation for Rieslings is also gaining popularity. McLaren Vale’s warner climate means great Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. It is in McLaren Vale where you will enjoy a new Scenic Enrich experience at the biodiverse Gemtree Wines.
During Oceans to Outback, explore Mt Gambier’s mysterious Blue Lake, the historic township of Penola, the Mary Mackillop Interpretive Centre, and the Woods Mackillop Schoolhouse.
