South Australia Extended Tours
This is easily one the most popular destinations on our calendar. The City of Churches can lay claim to being the best planned State capital with its orderly wide streets and surrounding parks and gardens. It is also the perfect holiday stopover for visitors wanting to experience the many attractions of the Festival State. After discovering the wealth of city attractions including the Festival Centre, Glenelg by tram and the rich Port area take a day tour to the famous Barossa Valley. Taste and experience the tradition in the "Valley of Vintages" heavily influenced by the German Settlers over 160 years ago. Visit the historic village of Hahndorf and wander the speciality shops. Tour through the enchanting Adelaide Hills and discover a calm, green rural beauty found nowhere else - narrow leafy lanes, picture book villages and old farmyards around every bend.
Famous for its natural, untamed appeal and its Seal Bay where visitors can witness hundreds of sea lions basking on the shoreline. A ferry operates daily to and from the Island and accommodation packages can be arranged for tours staying on the Island at Kingscote or alternatively on the mainland at Victor Harbour
The lure of the Flinders Ranges has long inspired travellers to make the pilgrimage to South Australia. These ancient, wild, unspoilt ridges and peaks thrust majestically upward cut only by wide valleys and twisting gorges. The showpiece of the National Park is undoubtedly Wilpena Pound, a huge natural amphitheatre protected by craggy walls where visitors can walk and fully appreciate the breathtaking beauty, especially at springtime when blooming wildflowers carpet the peaks projecting a sea of colour. Considering a holiday to Flinders? Accommodation is sparse and difficult, especially around springtime so allow at least 12 months planning. And for something different why not try an Outback theme including Coober Pedy and Roxby Downs then following the Oodnadatta Track along the edges of the Simpson Desert.
Don't forget there's a coastline of wind blown beauty leading to Mount Gambier in the southern most part of the State. Follow the coast from Victoria to and from Adelaide and take in the many features of Mount Gambier, a picturesque town set on the slope of an extinct volcano. See the famous Blue Lake and the beautiful Cavern Gardens as well as other major tourist attractions.
