Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in South Australia your home away from home

South Australia is the huge territory in the centre of the south coast of Australia. This sunny territory packs a great deal into its area of this huge continent with the sandy dunes of Simpson Desert, the outback at Flinders Ranges and the salt-sink landscape of Lake Eyre National Park all contrasting with the unspoilt coastline. Adelaide, the state capital, has excellent sporting and cultural attractions as well as European-style cafés and wide boulevards. It is known as the “Festival State” as there is always something happening in this vibrant territory.

Things to Do in South Australia

South Australia has plenty of things to do, particularly for those who enjoy the outdoor life. Swimming and surfing on the beaches, hiking in the National Parks and exploring Cleland Wildlife Park to feed kangaroos, koalas and emus are just some of the activities available Down Under. Visit the Mount Lofty Botanical Gardens, take boat trips, swim with dolphins or go game fishing in these warm waters. Go shopping at the Rundle Mall or head for the North Terrace to enjoy Adelaide’s rich architecture and arts culture. Dining out is no problem as there are more than 700 restaurants in Adelaide alone. Wine-lovers should head for the extensive vineyards in the Barossa Valley and Coonawarra, to tour the wineries and sample the award-winning wines.

Places to Visit in South Australia

Adelaide is the main city to visit from your South Australia holiday apartment or villa rental. With its lush gardens, wide boulevards and relaxed lifestyle it is a great place to enjoy a leisurely stress-free vacation. Visit the South Australia Museum to see Aboriginal artifacts and learn more about the indigenous culture at the Aboriginal Institute. The Adelaide Zoo is also a popular place to spend a day. Those looking for native wildlife will want to pay a visit to Kangaroo Island which is Australia’s answer to the Galapagos Islands, with its extensive local wildlife. The Naracoorte Caves National Park is one of the area’s highlights within easy reach of your South Australia holiday rental. It is close to the border with Victoria and has many stalagmites, stalactites and fossils which are displayed at the Wonambi Fossil Centre.

Very comfortable getaway!

5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at Wywurry recently. As a family of 5, there was plenty of room, and we all enjoyed it immensely. Kitchen well equipped with everything we needed. Thanks again for a lovely time away in a beautiful location! We stayed in January 2018, not 2017 - but the option for 2018 hasn't yet been added! :)

Beautiful Hydeaway Bay!

5 of 5
We stayed at Hydeway Bay over New Years and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience on many levels. When we first entered the house it very welcoming, clean, well maintained and was well stocked with anything you could possibly need. There was a lovely note from Helen on the table and a fantastic folder filled with everything that you would wish to know about Meningie and the surrounding areas. The remainder of the stay was spent kayaking on Lake Albert, bird watching/ feeding and relaxing while taking in the beautiful views of the lake. We took our two small dogs with us and they where more than excited, running about the garden and playing in the water. The dogs could also go outside free through a doggy door which led into a safe and secure a dog run at the front of the property. Helen was absolutely fantastic and kept us updated on special events in Meningie during our stay. Thank you Helen and Brenton for letting us stay at your beautiful Hydeaway Bay. We can’t wait come back.
