Adelaide is the gateway to South Australia; a compact city surrounded by parks and nestled between the hills and the sea. With great restaurants and cafes, a vibrant arts scene and countless festivals and events, it's the perfect place to visit before exploring the regions.

Enjoy the journey - and the destination

South Australia is often associated with wine - and it's no wonder. With 18 wine regions, visitors are often not far from a cellar door.

With more than 200 cellar doors within an hour’s drive, it’s easy to see why Adelaide is considered the wine capital of Australia.

Sample rich Shiraz in the Barossa or crisp Rieslings in the Clare Valley.

Head to the Coonawarra region on the Limestone Coast for its glorious red wines, particularly Cabernet Sauvignon.

On the way, pass through the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula and the world famous McLaren Vale.

Have an adventure and swim with the tuna on Eyre Peninsula or soar over the Flinders Ranges in a scenic flight.

Visitors can enjoy a cruise along the majestic Murray River or explore unspoiled coastline, including a stroll among a colony of sea lions, on Kangaroo Island.
