South Australia’s
top places to visit.

From the hills to the city and the sea, South Australia offers the perfect mix of Australian landscapes, all so close to Adelaide.

Where else can you wake up in the comfort of a five-star hotel, trek through lush, leafy wilderness, then watch the sun set over crystal clear waters all in one day?

No wonder Lonely Planet named us one of their best regions to visit in 2017!
Now, less talk and more action. Let’s start exploring some of the top places to visit in South Australia!

Escape to the outback

Driving through the Flinders Ranges and Outback, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were navigating the unexplored face of Mars.

You will find silent, dusty red roads bordered by towering ancient cliffs and deep craters. Dawns are striking blue, and dusks, deep red.

Chill out on the coast

We may be slightly biased, but South Australia boasts some of the best stretches of coast in the world.

From the impossibly clear waters and pure white sands of the Fleurieu Peninsula, to the wild waves and rugged cliffs of the Eyre Peninsula, nothing else comes close.

Yorke Peninsula is the perfect place for a weekend away, with charming towns just metres away from safe family swimming spots.

The Limestone Coast is known for its combination of beautiful beaches, gourmet food and ne wine, while Kangaroo Island is home to kilometres of uninterrupted coast.

Back in Adelaide, Brighton’s meandering Esplanade and Glenelg’s beachside café culture are irresistible.

>> The mighty River Murray

Take it easy on the Murray River

Float your troubles away on the Murray River, travel in style aboard a historical river Steamboat or private Houseboat and see the river for so much more than a water source.

Watch in awe as you cruise past the contrasting landscapes, from sandy beaches to sheer cliff faces every glance will show you a new beauty of this diverse destination.

Surrounded by fertile lands, the towns of the Riverland showcase exceptional produce, visit a local farmer’s market and indulge in the local citrus it is second to none!

With Phil Hoffmann Travel as your guide, embark on a range of inspiring adventures, and immerse yourself in the best SA has to offer.

Savour our hills and wine regions

South Australia is synonymous with fine wine.

Our State is home to some of the world’s most famous wine labels, and proud of it.

In the Barossa you will find five-star retreats, opulent self-contained accommodation and some of the world’s best wineries.

Escape to the leafy Clare Valley – the heart of Australian Riesling – or hire a car and explore the lush, green Adelaide Hills, enjoy a glass of local vino whilst the open wood re crackles beside you, creating a warmth and ambience that is second to none.

Visit one of the many cellar doors dotted around South Australia’s wine regions and treat yourself to a day of indulgence.
