Adventure out from Adelaide, South Australia

Travel to nearby regions for short overnight stays is now allowed in South Australia, so hit the road and enjoy the journey. Drive to Flinders Ranges which takes you into the heart of this dramatic mountain range. From Adelaide it takes five hours to reach Wilpena Pound, a natural phenomenon that looks like a giant crater in the heart of the Flinders Ranges. If you have a 4WD vehicle of your own, explore the network of gravel roads through ancient gorges and over rocky, weathered peaks. 

Tucked away on South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula, just an hour’s drive from Adelaide’s airport and CBD, lies the quaint town of Goolwa. Despite its proximity to a major city, this coastal town feels worlds apart from the hustle and bustle of city living. With its unpretentious beauty, historic charm and seriously easy-going locals, Goolwa became known for its leisurely lifestyle and laid-back culture when it was titled the first ‘Cittaslow’, or ‘Slow Town’, outside of Europe in 2007. It’s the only place in the world where you can board a steam train on Australia’s oldest railway and ride a steam powered paddle-boat that is over one hundred years-old.
