South Australia is one of the top 5 regions in the world to visit

by 1st Contact | Nov 29, 2016
  • Australia is a great place to live. Just last year it was ranked by the UN as the second best country in the world for its quality of life. While economic hubs like Sydney and Melbourne are usually the first places people think to relocate, Southern Australia can’t be ignored. Untouched, crowd-free beaches stretching across the coastline and vast outback landscapes wait to be explored. It’s no wonder it was named the number five must-see region for 2017 by Lonely Planet.
  • Australian beach

    Globally renowned travel bible, Lonely Plant, categorised the Australian state as an “offbeat destination demanding [their] attention” because of the quintessential “Australia experience” it delivers.

    Attractions range from beach to bush, but without the hordes of tourists you’ll find in more popular destinations like Queensland or Melbourne. Adelaide, the capital, was also ranked by the publication as one of the top 10 cities in the world in 2014. Below are a few of the region’s top highlights.

    Kangaroo Island

    One of the main attractions is Kangaroo Island. Often referred to as “a zoo without fences”, wild kangaroos and koalas roam freely amongst the indigenous fauna and flora. The island is just a two hour ferry ride from Adelaide.

    Barossa Valley

    South Australia is home to one of the country’s oldest wine producing regions. Barossa Valley’s first vineyards were planted in the mid-19th century and it is famous for old vine Shiraz wines. Visitors can enjoy a winding tour through picturesque vineyards and cellars.

    Adelaide Fringe

    South Australia is known as “the festival state” and the most famous is the Adelaide Fringe. This four week arts festival is the largest in the Southern Hemisphere and the second largest of its kind in the world, with 376 venues, 1,058 events and over 3,875 sessions.

    Adelaide Fringe is one of the most diverse arts festivals on the planet – and there’s a good reason for that. Unlike most curated arts festivals, anyone with any kind of show, exhibition or cultural event is welcome to register be a part of the festival.
