In the latest episode of our Arnhem Australia Travel Guide Series we're sharing our South Australia travel guide 

Must explore…

There are so many places that we have visited on our road trip around Australia that deserve a mention, but our more recent travels through South Australia have just blown us away! We have spent time hugging the coastline of the Eyre Peninsula, tasting amazing wines through the famous South Australian wine regions and exploring the beaches on the Fleurieu Peninsula. The Eyre Peninsula is a 7 hour drive from Adelaide, remote enough that it means pristine, white sandy beaches. On both the Eyre & Fleurieu peninsulas, they’re the perfect places to spend your days soaking up the magical coastline and enjoying sunset swims in the ocean. The wine regions are another favourite, driving through the rolling hills with a landscape that is full of vineyards, it is a magnificent sight!

Favorite beaches…

Where to even begin, South Australia is most definitely home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the whole of Australia…. but to name a couple of special places!

Sellicks Beach on the Fleurieu peninsula, South Australia has such a beautiful rugged coastline, the best part is it’s so accessible from Adelaide, it is the perfect place to watch the sun disappear over the ocean.

Almonta Beach is in Coffin Bay National park, another beautiful spot on the southern trip of the Eyre Peninsula. Driving through the National park has you feeling like you’re in Europe! The landscape and terrain feels different to other parts of South Australia, and the white sands at Almonta beach are just something else all together! A special place to spend the day.

Picnic Beach in Point Drummond is the perfect bay to take a swim. We saw dolphins every single day during our stay at the campground here.

Southport beach at Port Noarlunga. It is pretty convenient from Adelaide but when you’re there feels miles away from any kind of city. The stairs leading down to the beach are also a very picturesque spot.

Best places to stay...

For a bit of luxury, we recommend checking out the Greenly Carriage which is the most beautiful converted train carriage turned into a tiny home at Greenly Beach on the Eyre Peninsula. We also fell in love with the areas around the Barossa Valley, where you can camp up amongst the wineries.

After spending a few days in the vineyards across South Australia, it would have to be the incredible wines in the Barossa and Clare Valley regions. These areas are well known for their resiling and shiraz, there are over 100 wineries to visit and taste the local wines and produce. Jacobs Creek winery was a favourite as you can take a walk around the grounds and learn a bit more about the grapes used.

Best coffee…

I have to be biased and say ‘Naia the bus’ as my husband makes the best Oat cappuccino around! But apart from that, Goodness Coffee at Aldinga is delicious. Drift at Streaky Bay is another great spot overlooking the water.

Do in a day…

Start with a coffee at one of the many good cafes, beach hop down the Fleurieu peninsula and take a long walk along the dramatic coastline. Enjoy the rest of the afternoon with a picnic at the beach and end the day watching the sunset over Sellicks.


Vanlife with @twosometravellers as we explore South Australia in our travel guide series


For a weekend trip...

Take the 2 hour drive to the wineries in South Australia, our favourites are the Barossa Valley and Clare Valley. If you take or rent a campervan, there are so many awesome places to stay amongst the vines and enjoy a wine tasting session at the delicious boutique wineries. The drive is absolutely beautiful too, the little towns along the away are gorgeous and worth a stop to have some lunch and take a few snaps.

Insider’s tip…

As we have been camping in our motorhome during this trip, apps such as Wikicamps and Campermate are so helpful to find beautiful places to stay while visiting this region. It also has other helpful tips including places to visit, beaches and points of interest along the drive.

The pink salt lakes at Lochiel. Lake Bumbunga is worth the short detour from Clare Valley - it is such a unique sight in Australia!
