About the region
South Australia has made a name for itself as a relaxed region full of wine, wildlife and natural wonder. Its capital of Adelaide is home to a sophisticated art and dining scene, and the ‘Festival City’ knows how to celebrate, with a calendar full to the brim with events. Beyond the capital city, undulating wine regions produce classic Australian drops, migrating whales glide along rugged coastline and koalas snooze among the treetops on wind-swept islands.
