Natural beauty

From windswept clifftops and steep sided coves, to long sandy surf beaches and calm sheltered bays, the South Australian coastline is truly beautiful. Watch seals, dolphins and whales cruise by. The pristine waters produce an abundance of bird and sea life. Kangaroo Island is perhaps the jewel in the crown, with rare wildlife in impossibly beautiful settings.

Memorable adventures

Adelaide has a special relationship with its dolphin population. Swim with dolphins from a sailing catamaran, kayak alongside them amongst the mangroves or take a dolphin spotting cruise on the Port River.

The Eyre Peninsula is packed with adventure experiences. Cage dive with great white sharks, surf cactus beach, swim with feeding tuna or sea lions. For something a little more leisurely, follow the seafood trail and taste some local delicacies.

The Limestone Coast, Fleurieu Peninsula and Yorke Peninsula are also action packed. Fishing and boating, skydiving, joy flights and scuba diving are common activities.

Food and wine

One thing you will notice as you tour the coast is that food and wine is woven into the South Australian lifestyle. The local produce is often freshest and the best. Taste fresh crayfish, oysters, farmed tuna, kingfish sashimi, delicate King George whiting and giant snapper.

These are the things which place a tour of the South Australian coast at the top of your to do list.
