Welcome to Adelaide, where the skies are sapphire, the city's park-lands are emerald but the jewel in Adelaide's crown is a sparkling spectacle come game night. @adelaideoval is so close to the city that the roars of goal scoring can be heard from the west-end laneways lined with small bars and eateries ready to welcome post game celebrations. In the #summer, the stadium is primed for cricket and in winter, #AFL and #NRL, but throughout the year there’s concerts, shows and celebrations that keep the atmosphere alive. With the recent AFL 2020 season fixture announcement, round one kicks off on 21 March with the #Crows and #Swans going beak to beak, but feathers will be ruffled at the showdown between the Crows and #Port (🍐) on the 28th March. 😜 Thank you for the video @nathangodwin! #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: just a 1 hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia ]

We think @__serio__ just found our new favourite springtime cellar door, nestled among the greenery of the @visistadelaidehills and perched #lakeside at @K1wines. With an avenue of London Plane trees that lead to the romantic lake-house cellar door, you’ll soon see #K1Wines is perfect from the inside out. Sitting pretty in the #AdelaideHills, the vines here grow in idyllic cool climate conditions and are known to have some of the most premium, single estate wines in Australia. You’ll find us sunning ourselves on the deck sampling their range from #Merlot to #Moscato. #SeeSouthAustralia 🌳🍷 [📍Location: just a 2hr flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia and a 30 minute drive to the leafy green paradise, #AdelaideHills ]

A sea of stars will welcome you to the darkest, clearest skies in the @murrayriverlakescoorong. Just 90 minutes from Adelaide and on the banks of the #RiverMurray is officially one of the most magnificent places on #Earth to see the #nightsky. The @Idadarksky has just announced the River Murray as the first International Dark Sky Reserve in Australia and only one of 15 in the world. As the fifth largest reserve and 130-million years in the making, the #MurrayRiver International #DarkSkyReserve is now formally protected from urban light pollution. So set up camp and spend the night being entertained by one of the most rehearsed and spectacular acts you’ll see. Otherwise, choose from one of the three @jugglehouseexperiences #stargazing tours where you’ll witness over 5,000 stars with your naked eye and more through their telescope or hone your astrophotography skills with their night time know-how. Before you know it, you’ll be as gifted as @blntpencil! #SeeSouthAustralia ✨⛺[📍Location: a 2hr flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, and a 2hr drive to #BigBend near #SwanReach on the #MurrayRiver ]

We'd be happy to stop and wait for this red light ALL day... And after meandering for around 130 million years through South Australia from the border to Goolwa, the #MurrayRiver doesn't seem to be in any rush either! A stone's throw from this historic river port where the #MurrayMouth and Southern Ocean meet, here you can stroll right onto the sand and take your front row seats to spectacular sunsets over the #Coorong while casting a line for tonight's dinner. It's a lightshow worth taking pause for, just ask our friend @jesse_ehlers who captured this fiery showstopper as the sun set the sky ablaze with incredible reds, pinks and oranges. Not a bad end to a day well spent exploring towering sand dunes, meandering down quiet waterways, roaming along snow-white sandy #beaches and getting to know the local wildlife! 🎣🔥 #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: just a 1 hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia and a 1 hour drive to #Goolwa ] #SeeAustralia #Australia #Sunset

That night the Murray River decided to pop on her pink crown 👑 …This stretch of #river sure knows how to put on a show fit for royalty and Headings Cliffs lookout near Paringa is one of the best spots to stop and soak it all in. Perched above the river, from here you'll have a magical gun-barrel view downstream where the banks are lined with golden-hued cliffs that glow at sunset. After the show, clock onto river time and retreat in riverside luxury at @theframes_riverlandluxury with a local G&T or two from @23rdstreetdistillery and learn how to relax like royalty, #riverland style.

Beyond the yellow brick road… lies an ancient wonderland abound with jaw-dropping wonders! Sitting on the doorstep of #MountRemarkable and surrounded by yellow fields of #canola come #spring, Melrose is the oldest town in the #FlindersRanges and gateway to the wonders that lay beyond in Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park. Follow the yellow brick road like @australian_scenes and her mate Skippy and continue onto one of the dusty trails snaking through 540 million years of history… at the end of the road you might not find a wizard, but we think the gigantic natural amphitheatre of #WilpenaPound is just as magic! After a big day on the road, rest your head at @flinders_bush_retreats where you'll discover a luxury glamping experience tucked on a sixth-generation #outback station... yep, we're definitely not in Kansas anymore! #SeeSouthAustralia 🌼🌼🌼 [📍Location: just a 1 hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, then a 3hr drive to Melrose in the #FlindersRanges ] #SeeAustralia #Australia

Golden hour is a pretty special time here at very own Jurassic Park... as the last rays of daylight hit the ancient craggy clifftops of #sellicksbeach, it’s an unforgettable opening act before the blockbuster lightshow begins. Pull up your front row seats to the sunset spectacular on the beach or find a spot in the cliff-top dress circle like @__serio__ and kick back as the sun slips away behind the #ocean. With less than a month until #summer, a sunny sequel is just around the corner and we're already picturing ourselves lounging on these sandy, secluded shores and splashing in turquoise waters. As for movie snacks? Beyond its steep headlands, this local gem sits just down the road from the world-class vines of @mclaren_vale so you can sip a vino with the show...

Beam me up, Scotty… destination: Mars! Well, almost. Traversing the expansive, rugged landscapes of the #outback, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d been transported to the unexplored face of #Mars but thankfully, the other-worldly sandstone tablelands of #thebreakaways are a little closer to home. Hidden on the outskirts of #CooberPedy this remote outback masterpiece emerges from the red #desert landscape with kaleidoscopic sands that really do have to be seen to be believed. It's the perfect spot to seek secluded solitude come sunrise and sunset, when the sun drenches the parched land in a blanket of orange, red and yellow in a spectacular lightshow as @pianemec can attest. Ready for lift off? Your outback odyssey awaits! #SeeSouthAustralia 🚀🌌 [📍Location: a 2 hour flight (or 9 hours drive) to #CooberPedy from #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia ] #Outback #SeeAustralia #Australia

It’s underwater playtime with our favourite friends, the rare Australia #SeaLion. Swimming in the wild is the only way we like to interact with our marine life in South Australia which means you may or may not receive a wet, whiskery kiss. But, chances are high so be prepared to pucker up like @wanderingwilsons 😘 between September and June in the @eyrepeninsula which is when the sea lion season is in full swing with @adventurebaycharters. Follow the rules of the locals and duck-dive, weave, twist and turn when you’re in the water because that’s how playtime goes around here. Swipe right for the dance moves ➡️ Half-day tours run regularly and it’s an absolute must-do when you’re in @visitportlincoln! #seesouthaustralia [ 1 hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide and a 30 minute flight or 8 hr drive to #PortLincoln in #SouthAustralia] #adventurebaycharters #eyrepeninsula #summer #seeaustralia #australia

Over the hill but not too far away are (some of) the best city beaches you’ll find in Australia. With sunsets behind the ocean’s horizon, squeaky white sand and lapping waves, it’s how Adelaidians welcome the long balmy evenings where the sun doesn’t set until around 8:30pm in summer. Some may say it’s a healthy, simple lifestyle, and some may say it’s the only lifestyle, but either way our coastline is dotted with cafes where brunching and lunching is a staple on the weekend. In fact, you’ll find us at @folklorecafe…we’ll take the Eggplant Shakshuka and a freshly squeezed OJ please! #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: just a 1 hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, then 30 minute drive to #Semaphore ]

There’s nothing wrong with being castaway in a kayak with these views. The sights of #SecondValley reward the intrepid, especially from the water with the imposing, towering limestone cliffs that open way to sandy caves. But drop below the waterline with a tank and regulator (or a snorkel and fins) and you’ll see Leafy Sea Dragons, cuttlefish, Eagle Rays as well as caves to swim through and overhangs. If you’re happy cruising in a kayak like @flowcreator to seek out the famous @officialfleurieupeninsula views, drop into @second_valley_caravan_park to hire a stand up paddle board or #kayak! #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: just a 2 hr flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, then a 1hr 20 minute drive to Second Valley #fleurieupeninsula ] #SeeAustralia #Beach #BeachCaves

When the whiting are biting, you know it’s time to get to @authentickangarooisland, well #EmuBay more specifically. The 5km white sandy #beach on the north shore of our ‘island home’ is a local’s favourite for fishing, swimming and snorkelling because these clear, turquoise waters are protected from the elements and a ocean crossing from mainland crowds. We’ve found just the spot to spend a bare-footed week with your friends in affordable style. Waking up with the blues takes on a different meaning down here at @hamiltondune but we couldn’t be happier! 🌊🐬 #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: just a 40 min flight from Adelaide to #Kingscote or a 1 hour 40 minute drive from #Adelaide to #CapeJervis and then a 40 minute ferry ride to #Penneshaw in #SouthAustralia ] #KangarooIsland #SeeAustralia #Australia

Summer’s here baby! Well, not officially but with the week of glorious sunshine ahead, we’re preparing to hang our “Gone to the beach. Be back never.” sign. When the mercury rises #Adelaide has long stretches of sandy beaches to keep us cool, and with blazing red BEACH sunsets to take top it off? It’s not a bad place to be. @__serio__ is quite right when he says that we don’t have to rent an umbrella or sunbed to secure a spot on the #beach, much less fight for some space. Instead we get to drive onto the sand and park our car just shy of the waterline before spending the day lolling about in the water…that’s the unique way of #beachlife in South Australia. What Adelaide beach would you recommend to visiting family and friends? #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: just a 1 hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia – then a 40 minute drive to Silver Sands Beach in @officialfleurieupeninsula ] #fleurieupeninsula #SeeAustralia

#MountGambier always turns it on with natural pools and wonders all just a stone’s throw between each other. #LittleBlueLake (not to be confused with its famous cousin #BlueLake) is a local swimming hole just 10 minutes from the city of @discover_mount_gambier. This #sinkhole is also a cave diving site where 47 metres below the waterline lies artefacts from times gone by including a car, but today, we’re perfecting our pontoon dives… we’re giving @_aswewander a score of 9.5 with a 1.2 degree of difficulty!

Anyone for a slice of watermelon? We’ll take a generous helping of this #clarevalley fruit salad, thanks! Located in Lochiel, #LakeBumbunga is known to change colour from pink, to white, to blue depending on the salinity of the water throughout the year as @volantus_australis can attest after capturing her sitting pretty in pink. And we reckon this #pinklake beauty in @clarevalleysa is the perfect spot to wrap up the weekend... just pair this watermelon water with a few grapes (ahem, #wine). With the famed @clarevalleywine region just around the corner, after admiring these bubble gum pink shores we recommend a colour-coordinated glass or two of @clarevalleywine rosé.

A cultural feast for all senses, there’s a lot more to this #festival than the seriously delicious #dumplings (although we’ll take 10 thanks). Kicking off last night, OzAsia brings more than 60 events and 850 artists spanning music, theatre, dance, visual #art, literature and food to the @AdelaideFesCent on the banks of Adelaide’s #RiverTorrens until November 3 and it’s a cultural explosion of epic proportions.

Their only request is that you get in and join – how can you refuse an invitation as enthusiastic as this?!

Hello pretty! #NorthTerrace is a bustling boulevard with some of #Adelaide’s most impressive and architectural 19th century colonial buildings. It’s the city’s historical precinct where our political, educational and cultural institutions neighbour grand residences, each telling the most interesting and notable stories of South Australia’s past. Take a self-guided stroll starting from The Holy Trinity Church (established in 1836), past the Adelaide Railway Station, which has been greeting rail passengers for over 80 years, and onward to Old Parliament House established in 1842 with a board of four men and the Governor. Further along, stop in to the State Library of South Australia – particularly the Mortlock Wing which looks like a scene out of Harry Potter – and on to the criti8cally acclaimed @southaustralianmuseum. There’s plenty of shade under the Plane Trees and lots to contemplate as you watch the city go by 181 years after it was first settled. 🏛🚶‍♀️ thank you for tagging #SeeSouthAustralia @joeyjoenes [📍Location: just a 1 hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia ]​

There aren’t many other roads as iconic in Australia than Cape Du Couedic in Flinders Chase National Park, @authentickangarooisland. As you snake your way up and over these impressive hills and around each bend, the views that are revealed before you are the most spectacular and southern you’ll get on the island – there’s literally nothing between @pbsucheyre and Antarctica. At the end of the road you’ll be met with the most #RemarkableRocks you’re likely to meet, with each granite boulder precariously positioned and balanced as natural work of art. #FlindersChaseNationalPark is a rugged wilderness and a hikers delight if you’re keen to get off the beaten track. In fact, over a five day discovery, you can hike the #KangarooIsland #WildernessTrail, one of Australia’s great walks, traversing 61km across the island. #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: just a 40 min flight from Adelaide to #Kingscote or a 1 hour 40 minute drive from #Adelaide to #CapeJervis and then a 40 minute ferry ride to #Penneshaw in #SouthAustralia ]

Pink paradise awaits on the @yorkepeninsula and this long weekend you’ll find us strolling through strawberry fields that go on forever... 🍓 Sitting pretty between pristine beaches, untouched wilderness and laid back coastal towns, #pinklakes dot the landscape around these parts and you’ll find a plethora of blushing beauties around the seaside village of #Yorketown. Surrounded by some 200 pink lakes, just slip off your sandals and dip your toes in the strawberry milkshake waters like @chloektodd and start exploring. Of course, there’s a logical explanation behind these tickled #pink lakes; you can thank high salinity levels, combined with the presence of salt-loving algae and pink bacteria. The less water in the lake, the more concentrated the salt and the brighter the colour. Now, with all this talk of strawberries and salt and the long weekend just around the corner, we’ve only got one question… can someone pass us a strawberry margarita? #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: just a 1 hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, and a 2.5 hour drive to #Yorketown in @yorkepeninsula ]​ #YorkePeninsula #SeeAustralia #Australia #Travel
