Experience why South Australia is the state of WOW (wildlife, Outback, and wine) on this Australia vacation. As you travel across South Australia, you’ll enjoy easygoing culture in Adelaide, taste fabulous wines in the McLaren Vale and Clare Valley, and visit one of the icons of the Outback, Wilpena Pound, in the Flinders Ranges.


This 8-day Australia vacation takes you across South Australia to taste the best of the country’s food and wine. This trip is perfect for foodies and nature lovers alike.

Your Australia vacation begins in Adelaide, the capital of South Australia and a charming city defined by its Victorian architecture and relaxed atmosphere. While Adelaide might not be as world-renowned as Melbourne or Sydney, it’s nevertheless one of the most livable cities on the planet and a great spot to get acquainted with Australia. A sightseeing tour will get you up to speed on the city highlights, taking you to the North Terrace, the National Wine Centre, the Botanic Gardens, and Botanic Park with the Bicentennial Conservatory and the Adelaide Zoo. As you pass between these landmarks, you’ll explore the city’s parklands and historic centres and get in touch with its easygoing café culture.

Continue your Australia vacation by leaving Adelaide to explore the surrounding landscape. Head to the Fleurieu Peninsula to get away from the crowds and venture through one of the country’s premier wine regions, the McLaren Vale. You’ll visit wine cellars and beer breweries to savour the region’s exceptional drink, then ride 4WD vehicles along remote tracks to enjoy gorgeous vistas of the Aussie bushland. Head on to Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park, one of the most picturesque mountain ranges in all of Australia. The centrepiece of your exploration here will be Wilpena Pound, a massive natural amphitheatre formed from a syncline between two curving mountain ranges. A flight over the amphitheatre will let you best appreciate its natural majesty.

Finish your exploration of South Australia in the Clare Valley, “the most unblemished wine region of Australia.” Boasting countless vineyards and vintage homes left over from the copper-mining days of the 19th century, Clare Valley is picturesque beyond measure. It’s also one of the best spots to enjoy a Riesling. Spend your time here jumping between the various wineries and savouring the plentiful food and wine. Return to Adelaide to close out your Australia vacation.
