Sun's out, canola's out! 💪🌼 Each #spring, @clarevalleysa ’s rolling hills transform into fields of gold, with #canola flowers cropping up around every corner and not to be flowery, but we can’t get enough of these sunshine yellow meadows! Taking the road less travelled has it perks as our friend @volantus_australias discovered when they took the backroads through the golden heart of #ClareValley and received the royal treatment as Mother Nature rolled out the yellow carpet. Soak up golden hour for yourself and explore the heart of Australian #Riesling, stopping-off for some snaps along the way before taking your pick from more than 40 cellar doors tucked into @clarevalleywine region’s rolling hills and gullies. You’ll find some of the best local drops around the townships of Sevenhill, Watervale and Auburn with many connected by the 35-kilometre #RieslingTrail so head down Clare’s very own #yellowbrickroad and enjoy a glass or two at @jimbarrywines , @sevenhillwines or @mrmickwines #SeeSouthAustralia 🌼🌼🌼 [📍Location: just a 1 hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, then a 2hr drive to #ClareValley ] #ClareValleySA #SeeAustralia #Australia
Dinner with a side of art? Tonight’s dinner location is pretty as a picture and we’re loosening our belt buckles for an epic #Vietnamese feast. Tucked in the heritage-listed former train station on North Terrace, when you pull up a seat at @MadameHanoi not only will you sup on a smorgasbord of Vietnamese dishes and sip Asian-inspired cocktails, you’ll also have this blushing beauty by @emmahackartist for company. We’ll take the cold rolls, bao, coconut curry and green papaya salad… come to think of it, better make it the banquet thanks! Should we save you a seat? Thanks for the 📷 @becauseican01 #SeeSouthAustralia 🍽 [📍Location: just a 1 hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia ] #RestaurantAustralia
It’s almost warm enough to get out the camping equipment and head off on a road trip with your dog! As the days become warmer we are starting to plan our #summer camping schedule cantered solely around our fury friends - the way it should be 🐶! We recently did a Q&A about camping and it was clear that the majority of you, like @jaxonfoale here, are lovers of camping AND #dogs so we’ve paired the two together and we’ll be answering all your dog friendly #camping questions on our Instagram Story tomorrow! Make sure you turn on our post notifications to tune in with your pooch, pen and paper, it’s going to be pawsome 🐾 🚐 [📍Location: 5hr drive from to @port_lincoln to #LakeMacdonnell from #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia in the #EyrePeninsula ]
Talk about pretty in pink.... #Glenelg, you’ve nailed those perfect pastel vibes! With warmer days just around the corner, there’s a definite hint of #spring in the air and this blushing beauty is prepping for a season of sunshine, sand and spectacular sunsets. Picture this: lounging on sandy shores soaking in the spring sun and sipping cocktails at @moseleybk before kicking back at the ultimate beachside abode, @seawallapartments we’ll meet you there! Thanks for the beautiful 📷 @lovechloejane 🌞🌊 #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: a 1hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia then a 20 minute tram ride to Glenelg ]
Found: the perfect spot to ‘wine down’ in #McLarenVale! Home to more than 70 cellar doors, it’s not hard to find a place to pull up a pew and enjoy a local tipple or two around these parts as @antstagram_sa discovered when he wandered in to @samuels_gorge Perched on a hill in an 1853-built farm shed overlooking the spectacular Onkaparinga River National Park, it’s a pretty good spot to spend an afternoon sampling your way through bold reds while soaking in epic views of rolling lush hills. The only thing you’ll need to decide is whether to start with #Grenache or reach straight for the Shiraz...🍷 #SeeSouthAustralia 🍁😊🍷🍂 [📍Location: just 2 hrs flight from Sydney to #Adelaide, #SouthAustralia then a 45 minute drive to #McLarenVale in @officialfleurieupeninsula ] #FleurieuPeninsula #Australia
Wine flight, anyone? Here in @MyBarossa , they take things quite literally… Forget Ubering to lunch and jump in with @barossahelicopters - the ultimate #desodriver for all your wining and dining needs in Australia’s wine Mecca. And while we’re on the topic of eating and drinking, this weekend is the perfect time to dig into the #Barossa’s famous #foodandwine as #BarossaGourmet dishes up the ultimate long lunch from September 6-8 with a smorgasbord of sumptuous events showcasing the very best the region has to offer. Loosen your belt buckle and hail the helicopter… we’ll save you a seat! #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: just a 1hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia and a 1hr drive to the #Barossa] #Wine #SeeAustralia #Australia ]
Orange looks good on you, @authentickangarooisland ! When it comes to sunrise spectaculars, #KangarooIsland knows how to put on a cracking good show as @nikkiki73 knows all too well, who snagged front-row seats to this show-stopping matinee performance over #pinkbay. Our advice? Set your alarm early, wake up from your seaside slumber at @sea_dragon_lodge_villas and enjoy breakfast with a view over your own private bay… chances are your morning orange juice will come perfectly paired with a #sunrise to match! 🍊🌤 #seesouthaustralia [📍Location: just 2 hrs flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia – then a 35 minute flight or a 2hr drive/ferry to #KangarooIsland ]
Spring picnic, #Riverland style! Take an orange leaf out of the locals’ book and wind back your clock to river time and throw down a picnic rug among the fruit trees for some serious #R&R riverside. Set in the heart of the Riverland, Renmark sits majestically on the flourishing banks of the River Murray bordered by impressive 🍊-coloured cliff tops, wetlands brimming with birdlife and orchards bursting with spring’s bounty. As @soomin_jeon discovered, it’s the perfect spot to soak in the first hint of spring… Stop in for a tipple at @23rdStreetDistillery before settling in riverside-luxury at @theframes_riverlandluxury … yep, we could be here a while! 🍊🦘 #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: a 2hr flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, and a 3hr drive from #Adelaide to #Renmark on the #MurrayRiver ]
It's a party of pink and Mother Nature's throwing her petal confetti all over town to herald the start of warmer weather! Almond #blossoms are starting to rear their flowery heads all around South Australia and here in @riverlandsouthaustralia #spring is definitely in the air. It's a blooming good time to explore this neck of the woods as Almond orchards sit pretty in pink and nature's spring bounty beckons from the plethora of fruit growers. Soak up spring and call in to Aggie's Fruit Stall just outside Berri to pick up a basket full of oranges, mandarins, butternuts, avocados and stonefruits for a picture-perfect picnic among the blossoms... the perfect post-winter tonic to put a spring back in your step! #SeeSouthAustralia 🌸🌸🌸 [📍Location: a 2hr flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, and a 3hr drive to #Berri in #MyRiverland ] #DestinationRiverland #SeeAustralia #Australia
When life imitates art pull up a seat and watch Mother Nature paint a sunset spectacular as the day slips away behind the ocean. Just a stone’s throw from @jettyrdglenelg and with front row bath-tub seats overlooking the ocean, @seawallapartments are the perfect spot to mix up a local @neverneverdistillingco gin and tonic to soak in the seaside vibes of #Glenelg - just ask @benheide_photography how it’s done! 🎨 🖌️ #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: just a 1 hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, then a 30 minute tram ride to #Glenelg beach ] #SeeAustralia #Australia
#SellicksBeach, you’re a showstopper from any angle! Reminiscent of a #Jurassic Park scene, these craggy cliffs are surrounded by rich, green pastures with some of the best views in @officialfleurieupeninsula , just ask @julia_jacque ! Beyond its picturesque, steep headlands, this local gem is a favourite in #summer where you can find a park right on the sandy shores with schools of fish as your fellow beach goers. With only 12 days left of winter (🙌 ) we’re prepping for an upcoming season of salt, sails and sunscreen... watch out the tides are about to turn! ⛱️ ☀️ #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: just 2 hrs flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, then a 45 minute drive to #Sellicks #Beach in #FleurieuPeninsula ] #SeeAustralia #Australia
You're looking blooming good, #Willunga! With less than two weeks until we escape winter's chilly clutches (not that we're counting ), we've got a #spring in our step as #MotherNature dusts off her best floral frock and wraps her warming embrace around #SouthAustralia. Here in #McLarenVale, she's been hard at work painting the town pink with a sprinkling of #blossoms heralding the start of warmer weather. As @_brad.jpg knows, #almondblossom season is one of the prettiest times to explore @officialfleurieupeninsula as hundreds of acres of century-old #almondtrees blanket the town in a soft pink and white confetti of petals - it's a picture-perfect sight to behold. While you're about the place, stop in at the @willungafarmersmarket on Saturdays and feast on a bounty of spring produce, washed down with a glass or two of @mclaren_vale wine. #SeeSouthAustralia 🌸 [📍Location: just a 2hr flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, then a 45min drive to Willunga ]
Nope, this isn’t a scene from that wacky dream you had the other night… it’s just another day in @McLaren_Vale ! The surreal world of #SalvadorDali has taken centre-stage at the wonderfully whimsical @darenbergwine Cube and the result is an out-of-this-world art exhibition like nothing you’ve experienced. Add a generous splash of some of @McLaren_Vale ’s best #wine and like @bvcellars you're set for a magical day of curiosities (and wining and dining, of course! ). After wandering through complex and puzzling art installations, head into the 360 degree video room, wine sensory room or sit down for lunch where 3D printed food is on the menu - it’s a full assault on the senses and we’re not complaining! #SeeSouthAustralia Location: Just a 2hr flight from Sydney to #Adelaide and a 45 minute drive from #Adelaide to #McLarenVale.
No filter, no worries... we woke up like this! As our friend @nikkiki73 discovered, @authentickangarooisland is photo-ready no matter the time of day but early risers are sure to catch this blushing beauty at her dreamy best! Imagine waking from your slumber to this pink and purple haze as the sun slips above the ocean... yep, #sunrise is a special time of the day here in #Kingscote. Time for an island escape? [📍Location: just 2 hrs flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia – then a 35 minute flight or a 2hr drive/ferry to #KangarooIsland ]
But seriously, can we talk about those colours! The famous staircase at South Port #beach never fails to put on a show come #sunset, even in the middle of #winter when fiery skies turn the heat up on crisp evenings. As the sun slipped behind the horizon, @flowcreator was more than happy to stop for this red light and pulled out his camera at just the right moment. Truth is, winter probably churns out more #sunsets than soups around here - and with 70km of west facing #beaches stretching all along our city coastline to @officialfleurieupeninsula it’s clear why #Adelaide’s fast becoming known as Australia’s #sunsetcity. #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: just a 1 hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, and a 45 minute drive to Port Noarlunga ]
Tonight, you'll find us nestled up by the fire drinking red wine in an igloo! #Glenelg knows how to turn up the heat no matter the season and @moseleybk have found the perfect remedy for those cold wintry nights. Open from now until October, cosy up beach-side and book one of the two #igloos and tuck in to some of the best local food and winter-inspired drinks like mulled wine, warm buttery rums and winter cocktails. Rain, hail or shine, take the city tram to @jettyrdglenelg and in minutes you'll be retreating to your own private den after a brisk beach walk. We'll save you a spot by the fire ... ❄️ #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: just a 1 hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, then a 20 minute tram ride to Glenelg ]
There's plenty of fish in the sea, and we'd say our friends here are pretty glad about that right now! The crystal clear @eyrepeninsula waters are one of the few places in the world - and the only place in Australia - where you can get up close and personal with a #GreatWhiteShark in their natural habitat. Dive into the deep end with @calypsostarcharters for a nature show unlike any other... and don't worry, fish is on the menu today! #EyrePeninsula #SeeSouthAustralia 😱🦈 [📍Location: just a 2hr flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia and a 50 minute flight (or 7 hour drive ) to @port_lincoln ]
Blue, pink or purple - it all looks good on you, Port Adelaide! With character-laden streets awash with street art, cobbled laneways, heritage architecture and beautifully preserved 19th century warehouses, we guess it's not hard for this #maritime treasure to look this good… If you haven't been to @ourportadl lately, it's time to join the cool kids and soak in the wharf-side vibes like @philaments , who discovered this neck of the woods is teeming with eclectic spots dishing up some pretty tasty grub. You'll find us tucking into tacos at @lapopulartaqueria before strolling over to @piratelifebeer to wash it all down with a few brews! #PortAdelaide #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: just a 1 hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, then 25 minute drive to Port Adelaide ]
Adelaide, you look good in the spotlight! We see some pretty spectacular shows here in #Adelaide but this heavenly performance deserves a standing ovation... our friend @julia kral had front-row seats to this showstopper as the city basked in the glorious #winter sun - talk about good lighting! While we're on the topic of good shows, we might just wander down there and catch one of the final #bookofmormonau performances at @adelaidefescent followed by a post-show dinner at @seanskitchen for encore. Bravo Adelaide! 👏#SeeSouthAustralia 🌃 [📍 Location: just a 2hr flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia ] #SeeAustralia #Australia
‘Tis the season of the #milkyway and we’re certainly not complaining that we have our fair share of dark skies in South Australia. So this weekend, we’ll be sitting back with our eyes to the skies like @blntpencil did at #Carrickalinga on the @officialfleurieupeninsula This kind of night time entertainment is our idea of living life on the edge, quite literally! In fact, this road is a journey of epic proportions as it hugs the coast and weaves through majestic rolling hills with views over to @authentickangarooisland …Time for a road trip? ✨ 🚗 #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: just a 2hr flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia – then a 70 minute drive to Carrickalinga]
Paradise found, right here at @earthshipironbank in the @visitadelaidehills ! Someone please pass us some bubbles and fan us with those big green banana leaves, because we've just arrived in #jungle heaven. Speaking of, we might just mix up some jungle juice and pour a minty #margarita, because hey, when life gives you lemons, just add salt! #SeeSouthAustralia 🌵🍹 🍋 📷 by @holidayinsouthaustralia #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: just a 2hr flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia and a 30 minute drive to the leafy green paradise, #AdelaideHills ]
When we said, ‘paint the town red’ we didn’t expect a 30 meter-tall grain silo to be the canvas for a marvelous creation like this! The town of #Kimba welcomes weary road-trippers with sherbet-shades and a candy-coloured art installation that no road-side coffee could match. @julia_jacque can attest that this pick-me-up was a welcome sight after travelling on some long stretches of road in the @eyrepeninsula Believe it or not, it’s not an uncommon sight to come across these outdoor #art installations with #siloart blossoming across many regional towns throughout #southaustralia. We think this particular piece by @camscale is pretty, well…pretty, don’t you? 🎨🌾🚌#SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: just a 40 minute flight to #PortLincoln from #Adelaide and a 2hr and 20 minute drive to Kimba].
‘Holy’ guacamole, what a sunrise! Epic, orange skies are a regular occurrence in Adelaide (something @philaments knows all too well ), especially in summer, but we’ve been praying pretty hard this winter and the gods have delivered. When the skies aren’t as orange and we’re seeking the warmth of the indoors, you’ll find us feeding our souls with food. From charred beetroot to harissa kingfish, glazed quince yoghurts and peri peri chakalala chicken we’re heating up on the bread of life at @africola Click the link in our bio for our favorite restaurants in Adelaide, but be prepared to loosen your belt buckle! ! 🍷❄️🔥 #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: just a 1hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia]
Okay, we get why they are called #remarkablerocks … you can stop showing off now #KangarooIsland! The epic result of some 500-million-years’ worth of rain, hail, wind and sunshine, Mother Nature’s remarkable sculpture skills are best appreciated at #sunset when you’ll witness a colour show to remember as @markgrayphoto found out! These natural wonders are also 'coastal chameleons' - and no matter what time of day, the combination of light and lichens growing on the granite can transform the scene before your very eyes from oranges and yellows to purples and pinks. [📍Location: just 2 hrs flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia – then a 35 minute flight or a 2hr drive/ferry to #KangarooIsland ]
Are your teeth chattering? Better throw on your scarf and mittens and head to @visitadelaidehills , where warming up with a world class red and a hearty feast is a genuine rite-of-passage! Here at @thelittlecog , the mood is set with their open fire pits and street food. Take a peak at the #WinterReds website for a full list of cellar door events that form part of the annual #WinterReds from 26-28 July. In fact, from Friday to Sunday, you’ll find more than 30 cellar doors right across the @adelaidehillswine region overflowing with premium #wine, rustic food, cozy fires and lively entertainment, making this a perfect #winter warm up for city dwellers.

Can we take a moment to appreciate this #outback masterpiece? The rugged beauty of #thebreakaways has been stopping travellers like @jordaaaan_ in their tracks for years with an impressive kaleidoscope of colours. Here, the sun drenches the parched land in a blanket of orange, red and yellow in a spectacular lightshow come sunrise and sunset. Less than half an hour’s drive from #CooberPedy, explore The Breakaways on an outback odyssey with @aridareastours and discover this ancient landscape for yourself. #SeeSouthAustralia 🌈 🎨 🖌 [📍Location: a 2 hour flight (or 9 hours drive ) to #CooberPedy from #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia ] #Outback #SeeAustralia #Australia
Feeling brave? Step into the jaws of the alligator in the #FlindersRanges and unearth another world carved into the ancient rocks of the #outback over millions of years. Tucked in Mt Remarkable National Park, you’ll discover #AlligatorGorge home to the Terraces, a long series of small cascading #waterfalls and nope, no alligators here! Explore the ancient landscape like @mitch toft on a two or four hour hike and you might just stumble across some of the friendly locals with kangaroos, emus and a plethora of birdlife calling the area home. After all that adventuring, rest your weary legs and set up camp for the night at @rawnsleyparkstation where you’ll slumber in an outback oasis under a blanket of stars. #SeeSouthAustralia 🌄 [📍Location: just a 1hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia and a 3.5hr drive to Alligator Gorge ] #SeeAustralia#Australia #Travel
It's official, we live in a fairy tale! Step into the story book-worthy streets of @visitadelaidehills and like @antstagram_sa , you’ll discover this neck of the woods is packed with world-class restaurants, award-winning wineries, incredible local food producers, sleepy hamlets and picture-perfect views. Meander through tree-lined streets in #Stirling before grabbing a bite to eat at @thestirling and cosying up for the night perched above the #hills at @mountloftyhouse to soak in views like this over #piccadilly.

Brrrr! It’s chilly out there, and if you’re looking for hotspots to thaw out your frozen fingers this #winter, then brace yourself for the one and only @umbrellaadl , set to heat up the city and suburbs from 12-28 July! This massive live #music festival is getting ready to throw its warm vibes all over town with over 350 events across nearly 60 venues - and performers spanning all genres from pop, rock, hip hop, punk, jazz, world music, metal, folk and everything in between! With #Adelaide officially recognised as a UNESCO City of Music, this non-stop chorus of #winter wonders is a perfect grass roots celebration of all things ‘Adelaidean’, and with something for just about everyone’s musical taste, all that’s left to do is pick a venue and prime your party shoes! ☂️🎼 #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: just a 2hr flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia ]
Wanted: room with high ceilings and an ocean view! You’ll always find shelter in ‘The Woolshed’ at #TaliaCaves, as @bjm152 discovered just recently. This amazing cavern has been carved into the granite by pounding waves over thousands of years. With a honeycombed ceiling, dark crevices and nearby blowholes, this place is also home to the legendary ‘Tub’ - a large crater in the cliff joined by a tunnel to the sea. If you’re up for an @eyrepeninsula road trip like no other, drop a line to our friends at @auscoastsafaris , who’ll get you to all the best spots with great local knowledge, good humour and delicious food and drink. #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: 50 minute flight (or a 7hr drive ) to @port_lincoln from #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, then a 3.5hr drive to #Talia in the #EyrePeninsula ]
