South Australia

South Australia at a glance Australia’s best kept secret, South Australia, known as the ‘festival state’, lays claim to some unexpected facts. 50 percent of all Australian wine and 80 percent of premium wine comes from South Australia. The state boasts the finest nature reserve, Kangaroo Island, a ‘zoo without fences’ and Eyre Peninsula, superb for aquatic experiences. The opal mining town of Coober Pedy is the only underground city in Australia, and the beautiful Flinders Ranges are the largest mountain range and stretch for over 430 kilometres. You’ll also find some of Australia’s most diverse wildlife and be amazed by the planet’s oldest landscapes, all easily accessible from the elegant and graceful gateway city of Adelaide.
