Why Visit South Australia?
As the wine capital of Australia, the art of blending comes naturally
Here in South Australia, we blend far more than wine.
Adelaide is a short distance from Kangaroo Island, a unique wildlife sanctuary.
Our beaches, where you can swim in clear, turquoise waters blend brilliantly with dramatic seascapes, where giant southern right whales appear out of the blue.
Speaking of water, Australia’s mightiest river, the Murray River, meanders through our landscape. Mix lazy days on a houseboat holiday with the rush of high-energy water sports.
Enjoy fine food, arts and sport
We blend the freshest, finest produce in the country with chefs of world repute
Even in the ancient outback, (which is just out the back), you’ll find New Age chefs weaving their magic in the most unlikely places.
In our capital city, history and elegance sit comfortably side by side with cheering crowds, high octane adrenaline, the world’s best cyclists, global music and many more amazing events.
Our state blends a love of the arts with a passion for sport, a love of the new with a respect for the old, a warm smile with a cold glass of something.

We’re in the south of the continent (as our name implies) with a 3,000 kilometre (1864 miles) coastline. We reach far into the heart of the outback as well.
It’s all part of the brilliant blend that is South Australia.
