Wine, wildlife and wilderness – experience South Australia

South Australia is an enormous territory, with plenty to see and do. If you’re looking for a romantic break, then taste the wines and gourmet food at Kangaroo Valley. If you want to see the amazing Outback and Australian animals like kangaroos and koalas, visit a wildlife sanctuary or one of the national parks. Or you can head to the beaches to enjoy swimming and surfing. Holiday rentals are the best way to experience this part of Australia, as they give you freedom, flexibility and privacy – and you’ll find an apartment or villa to suit every need and budget.

Things to Do in South Australia

If you are coming to Australia for outdoors activities, then there are hiking trails on offer, as well as a selection of extreme sports like bungee jumping and paragliding. If you intend to base yourself on the coast, then you can enjoy traditional activities like sunbathing, swimming and surfing, as well as water-skiing and scuba diving. If you are interested in the history and culture of this area, then visit museums or one of the Aboriginal cultural centres. If you like the finer things in life, then the wine regions have some fabulous restaurants and spas, as well as vineyards. Whether you’re looking for a romantic break or something that everyone in the family can enjoy, you’ll find a holiday rental in an area that you’ll love.

Places to Visit in South Australia

Adelaide is the main city in the region – it is a relaxed city, with a pleasant village feel. The museums are some of the best in the country. The Australia Museum and the Aboriginal Institute are essential for anyone interested in indigenous culture, while children will enjoy the zoo. Kangaroo Island is a lovely place for a family seaside holiday – the wildlife is as much of a highlight as the beaches are. If you’re into wines, then the Barossa Valley is a must, where you can enjoy locally produced food and some superb vintages. If you’re looking for something a little bit different, then explore the Naracoorte Caves – an underground wonderland. The Flinders Range, particularly Coober Pedy, is a must for anyone who wants to have an Outback adventure.

Weather in South Australia

South Australia has a warm climate – and may be exactly what you’re looking for, if Queensland is too hot for you! Temperatures reach 30C in February, the hottest month. In June and July the daytime temperature is 16C. The temperature dips at night in the desert, to about 8C in winter. Whether you’re looking for hot sunshine or a holiday rental in a temperate climate, South Australia has something to offer.

                                                            Our home away from home

                                                            5 of 5
                                                            My family and I were fortunate enough to return to Beachcomber earlier this year, having holidayed there previously. Upon walking through the door we found ourselves with contented smiles saying "there's no place like home". Philip and Wendy ensured our stay was comfortable and hassle free. Beachcomber comes complete with all those little things that take the stress out of arriving following a day of travel; soaps and washing powder to salt and pepper. The kitchen is fully appointed and stocked with cutlery and crockery and there are fluffy towels and crisp sheets. The floorplan of Beachcomber is perfect for us. The main living/kitchen area is upstairs, along with the master bedroom and bathroom. The ground floor has another small living area, and two bedroom (one double, one twin), another bathroom and laundry. Parents upstairs and kids downstairs makes for a hassle free holiday. No fighting over the tv or to turn the music down. Morning breakfast is perfect on the large balcony overlooking the beach, which is a very short walk across the road. The balcony also has a barbecue and large table setting. Beachcomber's location is perfect; across the road from the beach, and easy walking distance to cafes, shops and hotels. We dined out on many occasions and enjoyed the short stroll home. I can highly recommend Beachcomber as a fabulous holiday location. Phil and Wendy provide and very friendly, helpful and professional service. We are already looking forward to a return visit in the future.

                                                            Nautilus in April

                                                            We stayed at the Nautilus for 3 nights for my daughters wedding which was on the Sunday. The home was beautiful. It had a welcoming air to it. The lounge as well as the beds were very comfortable. The shower in the ensuite bathroom was amazing. Philip and Wendy were fantastic with communication and answered any inquiry immediately. A luxurious home to stay in for a great holiday

                                                            My Favourite Place in South Australia

                                                            5 of 5
                                                            Seriously the best location in South Australia! We have stayed at Neptune and also it's sister house Meridian on many occasions each time is like returning to your own home. The location is superb with everything within walking distance, bakery, pubs, takeaway food and cafes you don't need to drive anywhere. The House has everything you need, great kitchen, comfy lounge and dining area, good sized bedrooms with crisp linen and a wonderful balcony with amazing views. We usually bring our bikes and ride to Goolwa and Victor on the Encounter bikeway, this ride has views that you just can't get to in a car. If you have kids horseshoe bay is a short walk. There are also plenty of places to explore if you want to walk or drive. Wendy and Phillip are always great to deal with. Would definitely recommend Neptune, don't look any further for your next holiday!
