South Australia

From the coast to the Outback, every part of South Australia has adventure activities to get the adrenalin pumping. Adventure seekers can surf with Southern Right Whales, dive through the wreckage of a scuttled Navy destroyer along the coast, water ski on the mighty Murray River, hike the formidable Heysen Trail, or cycle along the Mawson Trail from the Adelaide Hills. For serious thrills, explore subterranean caves, climb a mountain, or go diving with some of the most fearsome sharks on the planet.

And if you appreciate fine food and wines, tour the National Wine Centre, or the fabulous Adelaide Central Market, bustling with people seeking gourmet specialties. It's also less than an hour from the capital to some 200 cellar doors and tempting food and wine trails.
