South Australia Holidays

Holidays in South Australia are perfect whether you seek pleasure or hardy outdoor adventurers. Blessed with some of the country’s greatest natural wonders, this region is bursting with luscious green flora, fauna, and dramatic rocky landscapes that have many stories to tell.

From the rugged, red mountains of the Flinders Ranges steeped in Aboriginal culture to the shocking pink colours of Australia’s largest salt lake, Lake Eyre, you can explore some of the world’s most fascinating landscapes by hot air balloon or on a 4x4 drive.

South Australia is the unsung hero when it comes to spectacular, uncrowded beaches, with places such as Brighton and Glenelg offering a variety of fabulous brunch spots by the sea.

Intriguing sights and luxury experiences await in Adelaide, one of the most vibrant creative cities in Australia. If you’re in search of the good life, book a wine tour and indulge in plenty of artisan food and drink at the wineries of Barossa Valley.

South Australia Holidays bring memorable moments

Just six miles north of Adelaide lies Morialta Conservation Park, offering a bewildering network of hiking trails over chunky rock faces and past magical waterfalls. If you’re a wildlife lover then you will love the Southern Ocean Adventure from Victor Harbour, where you’ll visit various islands, home to New Zealand fur seals, Australian sea lions, dolphins, and southern right whales.

Combine your holiday in South Australia with a trip to the north, and travel in style through the outback on the Ghan. Call our Destination Specialists today and they’ll help you to handpick the perfect jaunts for your South Australian holiday.
