Map View
It's easy to bypass the mainland's southern-most state and skip from Victoria to Tasmania in an Australian tour. But South Australia is fast becoming a destination for discerning travellers. There's the wildlife, from seals to Kangaroos, a remarkable Thai cooking school in Adelaide, and some of the best restaurants the country has to offer. The Barossa is an epicurean's dream come true, and Kangaroo Island's Southern Ocean Lodge is one of the country's best places to rest after all the adventure
