South Australia offers visitors an abundance of scenic beauty, world-class food and wine, as well as epic natural landscapes that far belie its size. Adelaide, its charming capital city nestled between the hills and the sea, provides the perfect base for exploring the region. A short 20-minute flight from Adelaide, Kangaroo Island is home to abundant native wildlife and spectacular natural beauty. The Island’s prolific wildlife includes kangaroos, koalas, seals and sea lions, echidnas and rare birds. South Australia’s renowned wine regions — the Barossa Valley, Clare Valley and Coonawarra — are a haven for wine buffs and very accessible from Adelaide. Discover the rugged Flinders Ranges and enchanting Gawler Ranges and experience Aboriginal culture, wildlife and expansive Outback landscapes.

Traveling from South Australia, visitors can continue their iconic Australian vacation in Queensland and explore Cairns and Great Barrier Reef. Whether they are underwater on the Great Barrier Reef or exploring the Daintree Rainforest, visitors to Cairns and Palm Cove are guaranteed sensational beaches, world-class luxury retreats and a climate that is second to none. Internationally recognized as the world's largest and healthiest coral reef, the Great Barrier Reef offers visitors world-class scuba-diving and snorkeling, sailing and expedition cruising. The Daintree Rainforest is an easy 2-hour drive north of Cairns along one of the most beautiful coastal roads in Australia. Explore the lush ecosystem with a local guide, take a boat trip up the Daintree River or go horseback riding along pristine beaches.
