South Australia is almost embarrassingly rich in scenic delights and exciting activities. From the desert to the coast, there's so much to explore. Get in on the action with these top-shelf experiences.
Raptor Domain, Kangaroo Island
Raptor Domain has provided a second chance for injured, rescued and orphaned birds that are no longer suited for release into the wild.
See owls, eagles and other birds of prey in full flight, and watch how the clever black-breasted buzzard opens an emu egg. Get up very close and personal with Australia’s unique reptiles and, if you have the nerve, check out the action in the Venom Pit – home to some of the country’s more toxic denizens.
Camp and 4WD in the Flinders Ranges
So many choices! From the craggy ramparts of the Gammon Ranges in the north, to the valleys and canyons of the southern Flinders, there are remote campsites and rugged 4WD trails galore.
For high adventure and low-range action, tackle the tracks on one of the station properties that have opened their doors to visitors. Head deep into the Ranges through rocky gullies and along ridgetops to find your own patch of secluded camping paradise.
