South Australian Tourism Commission has created a list of experiences, attractions and accommodation for visitors.
What’s great about this list is it was designed to offer accessible travel options for everyone, including injured servicemen and women competing in the Invictus Games in Sydney next month.
So, for example, there is a beach with wheelchair access (Seacliff Beach has a mat extending to the water).
Suggestions include spending a day exploring 50ha inner-city oasis Adelaide Botanic Garden, before heading to the National Wine Centre of Australia, which has more than 120 wines.
“Taste some of Australia’s best cool-climate wines, food and produce straight from nature’s top shelf in the Adelaide Hills,” the list explains.
“Explore the charming town of Hahndorf, lose yourself in the leafy wonderland of Stirling, then stop for lunch at Uraidla’s Lost in a Forest — a quirky renovated church, serving South Australia’s finest gourmet pizzas.”
Kangaroo Island’s Flinders Chase National Park is one of the State’s top destinations.
“Watch the sun disappear beneath Admirals Arch, a giant natural cathedral, dripping with fossilised tree roots; or take a seat at Remarkable Rocks, a cluster of gigantic granite boulders overlooking savage cliffs and deep-blue swells,” South Australian Tourism Commission says of the island.
“Seal Bay has been home to an Australian sea lion population for thousands of years and offers one of the most exceptional nature-based experiences in the world.”
