Out and about in
South Australia

When travellers come back from epic laps around Australia, it sometimes comes as a surprise when their favourite places are in South Australia. Mount Gambier’s sinkholes, the pristine beaches of Coffin Bay, the outback’s glittering night sky – there’s so many amazing experiences to have in South Australia, you could explore here for a lifetime.

South Australia’s coastline is something else – a trio of dramatic peninsulas, plunging sea cliffs, empty white-sand bays and surf beaches with perfect barrelling waves. It’s the stuff of paradise for ocean-lovers, but what’s most remarkable is how it receives so little press. South Australia’s waters host abundant marine life, and with few crowds, it’s not hard to check out of reality for a while. 

Begin your experience of South Australia’s unique coastal environment along the Limestone Coast, famous for its abundant caves, craters, sinkholes and crystal-clear springs. Innes National Park on the Yorke Peninsula, and Coffin Bay National Park at the tip of the Eyre, make fantastic coastal escapes before continuing along to camp cliffside along the Great Australian Bight.

In terms of great road trips in South Australia, crossing the Nullarbor finds itself at the top of most bucket lists, and it’s also the key route into and out of Western Australia. The sealed road means any traveller can experience the tremendous sense of space that this drive is renowned for. 

The South Australian Outback, however, is where 4WDers go to get their thrills, all throughout the magnificent Flinders Ranges, as well as on tracks such as Oodnadatta, Strzelecki, Birdsville, Goog’s or the French Line through the Simpson Desert. These remote roads require a bit of extra skill, but the striking desert landscape is well worth the effort, from soft gold sand dunes to carpets of desert daisies as far as the eye can see.

If it’s a riverside adventure you’re after, consider driving the Mighty Murray Way, which starts in Renmark and wiggles its way down to Lake Alexandria and the Murray River mouth. Meanwhile, Greater Adelaide makes for a laidback city stay and is an up-and-comer in the food, arts and music scene. Exploring the city’s wine regions is a must, with Barossa, McLaren Vale and Clare Valley right on Adelaide’s doorstep.

Mount Gambier’s Surreal Sinkholes

When we say Mount Gambier was our favourite place on our lap of Australia, people are usually shocked, expecting us to say a popular beach or national park instead. But Mount Gambier is a town like no other.
