Cheap flights to South Australia

South Australia, sitting (naturally) in the southern region of the Australian continent, is most known for its great wines – you may have heard of wines from Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Coonawarra (known for its Cabernet Sauvignon wines), Riverland and more, all of which are renowned South Australian wine regions. More than just an exceptional place for the growing of grape-bearing vines, though, South Australia is a region of amazing cultural attractions, natural beauty, free-roaming wildlife and much more.

Considered the gateway to some of the continent’s most exotic natural areas – many of which are on the Australian National Landscapes Register and also UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites –South Australia’s iconic attractions (e.g. Flinders Ranges, Kangaroo Island, the Naracoorte Caves National Park and many more) are worth a look at any day. The state’s famous Limestone Coast - full of exciting caves, salt lakes, sinkholes and more - coupled with its balmy Mediterranean weather further makes it the perfect destination for a lazy summer holiday with great wine and seafood, or an adrenaline-packed adventure vacation discovering the many gems the region has to offer.

Getting around

South Australia is a great place for a scenic road trip – rent a car with your buddies, load up with snacks and enjoy exploring the diverse natural terrain! Otherwise, long-distance coaches are available to help tourists get to popular scenic areas in the region.

For those staying within capital city Adelaide, you don’t need a car – the city is blanketed by an extensive network of public buses, trams, and trains.

What to see and do

There’s no Australian icon quite like the lovable kangaroo, the country’s fluffy marsupial mascot. No trip to Australia would be complete without a look at this little hopper, so grab a ferry from South Australia and sail to Kangaroo Island, the state’s designated zoo without fences. An island of unmolested nature, Kangaroo Island boasts pristine bushlands – due to its status as a Wilderness Protection Area – and hundreds of species of endemic flora and fauna, the result of hundreds of years of evolution (itself a result of the island being isolated from the rest of the world). Here you can observe hoppity kangaroos, furry wallabies, adorable koalas and other iconic Australian animals roaming about freely on the island, walk amongst wild sea lions at Seal Bay, oooh and aaah at awkward little penguins and go out on a boat to swim with wild bottle-nose dolphins in the ocean.

Besides opportunities to hang out with the wildlife, Kangaroo Island also offers you a world of outdoor recreational activities: these include scenic hikes, surfing, diving, fishing, boating, exploring cliffs, rocks, natural formations and much more.
