When we think of Australia, Perth and Melbourne often take the spotlight. But have you ever thought of visiting Adelaide? This capital city of South Australia is home to various locations of wondrous beauty and natural splendour. The best thing about it is it’s accessible by car. Perfect for an adventurous road trip! You’ll get to see a hidden side of Australia, reserved in its natural state and experience the beauty up close and personal. But if you don’t know any of the must-see locations in South Aussie, we got you covered, mate!

Read on to find the hidden beauties of these four regions that you NEED to see in a Melbourne-to-Adelaide road trip:

This is the entry point to the South Australian border. And much like its name, you can expect to see an abundance of Limestone caves along with other shades of nature from the colourful greenery of the wilderness to the vibrant blue ponds. Fun fact: ever tried the world-famous Wagyu beef? This is the origins of it!

What to do in Limestone Coast:

  • Check out the aptly-named Blue Lake that mysteriously turns blue-er in spring, or go snorkelling in the crystal-clear waters of the Kilsby Sinkhole.
  • Step inside the Umpherton Sinkhole, a sunken garden oasis or explore the wonders of Limestones in the Tantanoola cave.
  • Ride along the seemingly never-ending coast of Long Beach in Robe or go wine-tasting in the Coonawarra wine region.

The Adelaide Hills’ charming little town of Hahndorf, located just a short drive away from Adelaide, will make you feel like you’ve just stepped into a fairy tale wonderland. This is where you should go to experience the Ozzy wildlife, picturesque villages and some of the best produce and wine that South Australia has to offer.

What to do in Adelaide Hills:

  • Pick an unlimited amount of fresh strawberries at the Beerenberg Family Farm or visit the Jurlique Farm, home to the globally-known skincare brand Jurlique, to get a preview of how the products are developed and delivered from seed to skin.
  • For a more adventurous day out, explore the Cleland Wildlife Park to meet some adorable furry friends like the koalas, kangaroos, wombats and more!
  • Lodgings such as The Studios by Haus or The Stirling Hotel will definitely give you a refreshing stay as well as some good ol’ OOTD shots for the ‘gram.

The Fleurieu Peninsula stretches between the city and the southern coast, turning it into a picturesque natural backdrop and is home to some of the most aesthetically pleasing wineries in the world, perfect for a calming holiday. You can also spend time discovering its charming towns or have an adventurous day out with the wildlife.

What to do in Fleurieu Peninsula:

  • Satisfy your tastebuds (and your IG feed) by visiting unique wineries such as Down the Rabbit Hole (that’s made out of a double-decker bus) and The d’Arenberg Cube (shaped like a Rubik’s cube).
  • Rough the day out with a 4×4 buggy tour at the Softfoot Alpaca Farm or go swimming at Oceanic Victor with the fastest fish in the sea, the Bluefin Tuna!
