Soak up spring in South Australia

Soak up spring in South Australia

Shake off the winter blues with our top spring experiences in South Australia.

There’s no better time of year to get out and explore all that nature has to offer than in spring. Drive along idyllic streetscapes painted pastel by springtime blooms, picnic in gorgeous gardens and explore the great outdoors – all without leaving marvellous South Australia.

Explore canola crops in the Clare Valley

Every year, as we wave goodbye to winter and welcome spring, the Clare Valley erupts into a dazzling display of golden fields, stretching as far as the eye can see. Canola season is the perfect time to check Clare Valley off your bucket list! A drive through the region will see you passing by fields upon fields of these bright yellow flowers, and the photo opportunities are endless. It’s important to keep in mind, though, that these fields are private property, so you’ll have to admire them from a distance.

Take a ferry to Kangaroo Island

If there’s any place in South Australia where you’ll be able to reconnect with nature and get your dose of the great outdoors after a winter spent inside, it’s Kangaroo Island. This spectacular island is bursting at the seams with incredible natural wonders – from native wildlife and jaw-dropping landscapes, to world-class beaches.

Explore Mount Gambier

Mount Gambier, also known at the heart of the Limestone Coast, is full of natural wonders and geological delights that are sure to keep the entire family entertained. A favourite is the iconic and fascinating Umpherston Sinkhole/Balumbul, which is also known as the sunken garden. The sinkhole sits in what was once a limestone cave, which collapsed and created this incredible sinkhole garden. The beauty of the garden can be admired from the viewing platforms at the brim, or you can venture into the sinkhole to immerse yourself in the beauty of the garden.
