Delectable Sampling of South Australia

This nature filled state has everything Australia is famous for ~ golden beaches, lively cities, vast outback, unusual wildlife, endless sky and welcoming people.

Adelaide
Bounded by rolling hills and pristine beaches, Adelaide is a vibrant, stylish city. And as the wine and festival capital of Australia, you’ll always find something going on.

Do: For parents and older children, the city has plenty of diversions – galleries, cafes, pubs, bookshops, fashion houses, antique stores, nightlife, cellar doors and national parks. Young children and adults alike will love the wildlife park where you can hold a koala.

Learn about Australia’s indigenous peoples’ culture and art at Tandanya, Australia’s oldest Aboriginal-owned and managed multi-arts center. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples guide visitors through exhibitions in the art galleries and give performances in cultural arts such as the didgeridoo and traditional dances.

The Adelaide Central Market buzzes with life all year round with fresh fruit and vegetables, meat and seafood, cheeses, cakes, and other gourmet delights. Along with the food, it’s a wonderful introduction to the colorful Aussie lifestyle.

Stay: In a Fire Station – a classic fire engine station that has been fully restored to meticulous historical standards but with welcome modern features such as a king-size spa bath and kitchen facilities. Among the inn’s many antiques and memorabilia, children love the full-size fire truck.
