With restrictions easing and the temperature dropping, it’s time to rug up, hit the road and rediscover the beauty of winter in SA.
For many South Australians, time spent in self-isolation has led to a new-found appreciation of what was right in front of us all along. In Adelaide, and throughout our stunning regions, here are 10 South Aussie experiences, guaranteed to warm your heart this winter.
1. Discover Hallett Cove Conservation Park – one of Australia’s most fascinating geological sites
Just 30 minutes’ drive from inner-city Adelaide lie the remains of ancient glaciers, said to be more than 280,000 years old. Grab a coffee to go at the Boatshed café, then stroll along Hallett Cove Conservation Park’s clifftop boardwalk, taking in wild ocean views and geological marvels.
Naturally formed glacial pavements line the walking trail, while The Sugarloaf (a conglomeration of ancient boulders and sediment, named for its red hues and resemblance to a mass of refined sugar) stands tall, watching over the ocean below.
