Self drive South Australia

We’ve recently had great news from Emirates Airlines – they’ve launched a new route to Adelaide, which means that it will be much easier for visitors to reach South Australia from regional UK airports. Adelaide is the gateway to Kangaroo Island – a must-visit for those interested in Australia’s wildlife. With no predators on the island the native wildlife has flourished, with seals basking on quiet beaches, koala’s munching on gum trees, echidnas wandering in search of insects, and kangaroos, goannas, wallabies, penguins and birds at just about every turn.

Kangaroo Island remains one of the most unspoilt natural wonders of our world, with a third of the island protected as conservation or national park – half of the island has never been cleared of native vegetation. Walk amongst huge weather-sculpted granite boulders at Remarkables Rocks, and roll down the snowy white dunes of Little Sahara. Stretch out on your own little spot on the Islands 480 km’s of coastline.

Also accessible from Adelaide is the Barossa Valley – a great wine growing region, and only a two hour drive from the city. Spend a couple of days relaxing in a luxury retreat, and enjoy excellent food and wine.

Not to be forgotten is the Eyre Peninsular. The Gawler Ranges National Park has to be seen to be believed. This area is one of the oldest known lands in the world and home to the snowy white Lake Gairdner – a dry salt lake that has to be seen to be believed. Wildlife here is in abundance to say the very least – with literally hundreds of kangaroos, of all three major species, wombats and even an emu or two.

All in all South Australia has a huge amount to offer visitors, and with access to the region being made easier by the new route with Emirates, why not think about including this region in your Australia self drive holiday.
