The stunning wine country of South Australia, nestled in the valleys and rich earth are only the beginning to the wondrous landscape of the state. From geological wonderlands steeped in history to mighty rivers feeding into vast wetlands, there is such dimension to this interesting terrain.


South of the state is dominated by rugged coastlines with dramatic peninsulas and isles whose cliff faces offer a wild backdrop to pristine beaches. Hugging the coastline and interspersed throughout the state are a glut of dense forests within national parks and nature reserves. Many of the lusher areas are due to the sustaining effects of the rivers and floodplains.

In distinct contrast, the arid featureless expanse of the Nullarbor Plain is offset by the striking beauty of pure white salt lakes, the rising mountains of the Flinders Ranges and the dominating Remarkable Rocks — monoliths weathered by the elements for millions of years.
