South Australia

A blend of epicurean delights, South Australia is a heritage state with enviable traditions in wine making and picturesque colonial towns, fused with contemporary culture that manifests in a world-famous calendar of festivals and performances. From the Clare Valley and Barossa Valley to the Murraylands, Flinders Ranges and the outback, South Australia has a multitude of vistas and visitor attractions packed into a picturesque, compact state.

Adelaide is a city of great visual harmony and has a classical elegant style, superbly set beside the River Torrens between the Adelaide Hills and waters of Gulf St Vincent. Colonel William Light got it right in 1837 when he laid out his broad streets and surrounded them with a generous green cushion of parkland. The result is a place where traffic seldom jams, the inner-city highlights are all an easy walk away and it's virtually impossible to get lost. Within minutes of arriving in Adelaide you'll soon realise that it's not trying to be some other place. It has its own quiet confident air of individuality that gives it instant appeal.
