South Australia Travel Guide

South Australia is the gateway to the preserved wilderness of Kangaroo Island with its conservation areas and rare animals, the renowned Barossa Valley wine-producing region, the underground world of opal-mining town Coober Pedy - and of course the southern capital of Adelaide.  This fun-loving city makes a perfect base to explore the region and sample its varied culinary delights.
