South Australia’s ancient outback, world-famous wine regions and impossibly beautiful coast play host to a plethora of unique experiences.
From shucking oysters in Eyre Peninsula waters to curling up by the fire with a Barossa red, there’s a time and a place for everything. To help you get the most out of your next SA escape, we’ve paired each region with its ideal month to visit. Come rain or shine, know where to go, when.
December on Kangaroo Island
Spend Christmas in paradise on Kangaroo Island. Just a 45-minute SeaLink ferry ride from Adelaide lies an island abundant with wildlife, boasting some of the best beaches in the world.
Come face-to-flipper with the locals at Seal Bay, unroll your towel at Vivonne Bay (once voted the best beach on Earth) and witness the grandeur of the aptly-named Remarkable Rocks.
When lunchtime rolls around, sink your teeth into fresh local produce at Ferguson’s Seafood in Kingscote, then wash it down with a glass of vino at Amadio Wines or Dudley Wines.
