You won't be disappointed with South Australia

South Australia could be best described as wild. Vast swatches of stark outback made up of red dunes, rocky formations and more kangaroos than humans make up the interior, while long stretches of rugged coastline are a surfer's dream. Looking for a city break? You won't be disappointed if you score a South Australia vacation rental in Adelaide, often called the "City of Churches", where you can delve into its culture, museums and fine eateries, or drive out to the nearby Barossa Valley to learn about Australian wine production and taste some fine reds and whites.

Outdoor family adventures in South Australia

Adelaide might only be Australia's 5th biggest city, but there are endless things to do here when you stay at a South Australia vacation rental. The nearby beaches are pristine and just a short tram ride away from the city. Beaches not your thing? Try bundling the family in the car and driving down to the River Torrens for a picnic on its banks. If you're looking for something on the wilder side, you could head out to South Australia's stark outback, where you can set up a camp fire, look for some bush tucker and spend a night under the stars.

South Australia's jewel is Adelaide

Culture vultures should book up a South Australia vacation rental and make a beeline for the state capital, Adelaide. Just a wander through town reveals some gorgeous 19th-century buildings and swathes of green parkland. If you head up to North Terrace precinct, a spot which has been recently renovated, you'll find everything from museums to botanic gardens. Love to shop? You've come to the right place. Adelaide's varied retail spaces are good enough to satisfy even the pickiest of shoppers. There are more than 200 wineries in South Australia that open their doors for travelers to learn about wine production and sample some tastings.

A mild year-round climate in South Australia

Most of South Australia has a mild year-round climate. The summer season from December to February is the busiest, with families booking up waterfront South Australia vacation rentals and spending their days on the beach. If throngs of beach bums and sizzling temperatures aren't your thing, try to book up a rental in the cooler months. Between March and May and September and November, you can score a deal on rentals, the weather will be a little more comfortable and you'll have far fewer travelers to contend with on the trails and sand.

South Australia boasts Kangaroo Island

If you're a nature lover, you're in the right place when you book up a South Australia vacation rental. Nearby Kangaroo Island, of which more than a 3rd is national park, is one of the best places for spotting wildlife in the whole country. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for native critters like tammar wallabies and southern brown bandicoots rustling around the towering gum trees and colorful wild flowers, as well as kangaroos, of course. That's not all though. In the surrounding waters, you could catch a glimpse of playful sea lions and leafy sea dragons, among other creatures of the deep.
