Even though Adelaide, the capital of South Australia, is located along the Gulf of St Vincent, it is still the best city in the state to base oneself for an outback extravaganza. The city rests between the Mount Lofty Ranges and the SA coastline, surrounded by some of Australia’s most enticing wine regions, including the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale. There is ample opportunity for tourists to experience the great Australian outdoors, as sites like the Flinders Ranges are within a few hours’ drive by hired campervan.
Adelaide itself is a charming city, with plenty of history. Many attractions from yesteryear continue to flourish within the city, along with a smorgasbord of cultural icons. Not far from Adelaide is the ever-popular Kangaroo Island, which provides the perfect daytrip or overnight experience for visitors. Adelaide is also just a day’s drive from the Victorian capital, Melbourne, the outback opal town of Coober Peedy, and the awesome Eyre Peninsula.
North Terrace is a must-visit area of Adelaide. One of the most important cultural attractions here is the Art Gallery of South Australia. Housed inside an old yet breathtaking Victorian building, the gallery consists of more than 35,000 works of art. In addition to its permanent collections, the building showcases world famous temporary exhibits. Also worth checking out is the Adelaide Botanic Gardens, one of three such gardens in the city. From the Bicentennial Conservatorium to the 19th century Victorian glasshouse, these gardens are perfect for a leafy afternoon retreat.
Located within the beautiful Adelaide Railway Building is the city’s casino. Established in 1985, this site is the only gaming venue in the state of South Australia, making it a popular venue for locals and tourists. This is the best place to let your hair down, unwind and enjoy the thrill of the bet.
A quick drive from the heart of Adelaide, and tourists will find Mt Lofty, the highest point in the city.

The Mt Lofty Botanic Gardens are also found here, so picnicking among the stunningly landscaped gardens and scenic views is always a memorable experience.
A short distance from downtown Adelaide is Brighton Caravan Park. This beachfront camp ground is recommended for tourists with a family, as facilities like beach access, a kiosk and playgrounds are available.

Much of South Australia is pure ‘Aussie’ outback, so before heading out, always pack plenty of fuel, water, and food, and plan the trip well. Try to know where the next supply town will be. Traffic tends to be light outside the major cities, but places like Adelaide can get congested. Always stick to the speed limits, and if driving on unsealed roads, caution is advised. Police show no mercy to drink drivers (0.05 per cent blood alcohol level).
