Lake Eyre is not just the biggest salt lake in Australia, it is one of the most majestic and magnificent natural attractions in the state. Typical of the outback’s grim conditions, it is a truly significant testament to the rocky terrain of Australia’s rural side, shadowed only by the unrelenting Simpson Desert .

Barely an hour out of Adelaide, this beautiful and luxurious region is globally renowned for producing some of the most amazing wines, delicious cheeses and best craft beers. The secret of the Barossa Valley is that it’s not just for the borderline alcoholics or “enthusiasts” as they like to say, there are things to do for the whole family with an abundance of beautiful picnic spots and intricate cycling and hiking tracks. Beginning at Port Augusta further along the coastline, all the way down to Mount Gambier near the Victorian border, you’ll find pockets of heavily urbanised areas, with lots of activities, events and hundreds of local attractions. The regions around Adelaide include the Adelaide Hills, the Riverland Region and the Murraylands which denotes the townships and centres that are based along the Murray River. To discover some picturesque localities and exquisite tourist attractions, be sure to visit these regions. After all, most of them produce wine so at the very least, you can drink the night away with good friends and even better wine!
