Think of things to do in South Australia and the mind might drift to the ambient streets of Adelaide, or perhaps to the cool and cultured climes of Kangaroo Island. But there’s an awesome array of interesting towns to escape to in this southerly section of our kaleidoscopic country. From the former seaport of pretty Port Augusta to the ultra-quirky desert town of opal-rich Coober Pedy, there’s a thrilling range of places to rest your head for a few nights and escape your ordinary routine.
Oceanside luxury awaits in Port Lincoln, where you can down artisan cocktails before retiring to a private balcony. Or if you prefer a group trip to vineyard-fringed Clare, you can frolic in verdant landscapes before sampling glasses of smooth Pinot Noir as the sun sets. Look forward to trendy rooms with bay views and minibars stocked with tipples for your taste buds. Whatever you’re looking for, there’s something to suit every preference and budget across this wildly wonderful state.
