Using a long weekend, we made a four-day trip in South Australia. Our destination names were not on the hot list of Australia’s must-do. But we were owed by what we saw. It is hard to believe that we could experience all these fantastic places just by ourselves.
Although I am not a big fan of Adelaide – a bit too quiet for me – I loved my trips to South Australia. It was my second time there after a trip to Kangaroo Island a few years ago. I found wildlife was already amazing back then. I did not imagine it could get better than this. I even gave this title to my blog article: My Fabulous Wild Encounters On Kangaroo Island Will Be Hard To Beat. Well… this new trip kind of beat it! Wildlife was not the only highlight of our voyage. We also enjoyed fantastic sceneries all along the journey. We were surprised that even Australians don’t know much about these jewels we visited.
This article features the links to my articles about our 4-day trip in the north-west of Adelaide across the Eyre Peninsula, the Gawler Ranges, Lake Gairdner and the Clare Valley.
Details of the road trip in South Australia, day by day:
- Day 1: The beautiful Eyre Peninsula: Whyalla & Streaky Bay
- Day 2: Swimming with Sea Lions and Dolphins at Baird Bay
- Day 3: The incredible Lake Gairdner
- Day 4: Wineries in the Clare Valley
