Jump in, Dorothy! We’ve found you a yellow one… After popping in to see the Tin Man, our mate @wild_atmospheres took the back roads straight to @clarevalleysa, where the Wizards of wine are prepping their vines amongst the spring #canola. Just over the hill, you’ll find the heart of Australian Riesling, with vignerons plying their craft since the 1830’s. If you’ve arrived thirsty, you’re in luck – there’s over 40 cellar doors tucked into @clarevalleywine region’s rolling hills and gullies, with many connected by the 35-kilometre #RieslingTrail, ensuring you’ll be well watered en-route. Whether you’re cycling, driving, or walking, you’ll find some of the best local drops around the townships of Sevenhill, Watervale and Auburn. And hey… if you’re keen to leave the car keys at home (which let’s face it, is always a good idea!), then just hop on board with @topfoodandwinetours to take your taste buds on holiday! #SeeSouthAustralia 🌼🌼🌼 [📍Location: just a 1 hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, then a 2hr drive to #ClareValley ] #ClareValleySA #SeeAustralia #Australia

Nothing delivers scale quite like the wild and rugged seascape of @eyrepeninsula as our mate @dodd_life knows all too well. With uninterrupted views across the Southern Ocean and pounding surf at their feet, he spotted these two trading photos right on the edge of the earth - next stop… Antarctica, about 5000 kilometres to the right! Plonked out in the water on that pinnacle there’s an osprey nest, sitting superbly in isolation, having been carved by the surf over thousands of years. Just down the road, the Chain of Bays (Venus Bay to Streaky Bay) is known for its amazing waves and fishing, and with @camel_beach house perched perfectly at the southern-most tip, it’s a prime spot to breath in all that sea and solitude - with a sundowner in hand… 🌊😱 #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: 7.5 hours drive (or 50 minute flight) to @port_lincoln from #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, then a 2hr drive to ]​ #EyrePeninsula #SeeAustralia #Australia

All good things come to those who wait, and after a 2,500 kilometre #Nullarbor roadtrip, @jaxonfoale was treated to a scene straight out of Alice in Wonderland! As anyone who’s driven @eyrepeninsula knows, there’s plenty of eye candy along this coastline, including a decent plate of marshmallow here at Lake MacDonnell. These colours are the result of millions of micro-organisms producing beta-carotene, painting the place pink when they thrive. At the end of the dirt you’ll also find Cactus - one of Australia’s most legendary surf breaks, which is both feared and loved by wave riders from across the planet. Head beyond the breakers and you’ll also lob into the cool coastal hamlet of #Ceduna, who’ll be celebrating their @ceduna_tourism_events #Oysterfest from 28-30 September. Oh, and don’t take our word for it… as the locals will attest, it’s shucking sensational! #SeeSouthAustralia 🚙💞 [📍Location: a 1hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, then a 1.5hr flight (or 8.5 hour drive) to @ceduna_tourism_events, and a 45min drive to Point Sinclair ] #SeeAustralia #Australia #PinkLake

“Wait… Did I lock the front door?” When @jacquibarkerphotography spotted Karen on the hop to the the local roo-permarket, she seemed to have a few things on her mind… With the sun peeking through and the days getting warmer, the #FlindersRanges can defintiely hit a ‘purple patch’ in #spring, and it sometimes it’s enough to even bamboozle the residents. While this noxious weed – known as Salvation Jane or Patterson’s Curse (depending where you’re from) – is a real thorn in the side for graziers, it still turns heads when it appears en-masse beneath a brilliant backdrop of red craggy peaks. If you’re planning a road trip to this outback oasis, keep your eyes peeled for wildlife at every fork in the road – before resting up in your cushy @rawnsleyparkstation Eco Villa by night! #SeeSouthAustralia 💜💜💜 [📍Location: just a 1hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia and a 5hr drive to the central Flinders Ranges ]​ #SeeAustralia #Australia #Kangaroo

Don’t get all misty on us, #Clarendon… you look peachy this morning! With clear skies and barely a breeze, these glorious spring dawns around @officialfleurieupeninsula may be a tad icy, but we wouldn’t have them any other way! When @benheide_photography fumbled his way through the #fog to @hcvwines, he was given a nice warm welcome as the Sun popped up over the (almost) budding #vines! Hugging the Onkaparinga River and within easy striking range of both @visitadelaidehills and @mclaren_vale the historic township presides over some seriously good #wine country, which is known to supply grapes to many of Australia’s most famous wines. If you’re swinging through nice and early on a Saturday, be sure to call in to @willungafarmersmarket for breakfast! #SeeSouthAustralia 🌅🍷❄️ [📍Location: just a 2hr flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, then a 45min drive to Clarendon, near #McLarenVale ] #FleurieuPeninsula #SeeAustralia #Australia

Shoes off, Sun down, crowd free… Are we missing anything? #MaslinBeach may only be a short hop from the city, but it feels like a world away - and to be honest we left our watches at home... Beyond its glistening sands and gentle lapping waves, this place is known for killer #sunsets, and as @toripix86 will tell you, it’s a prime spot to soak in some sea air over a @mclaren_vale vino or two. Head to the right and you’ll wind up at Moana (even better than the movie), where you can pull up a picture-perfect car park, right on the beach. Head to the left and you’ll find a long swathe of empty white sand all the way to Blanche Point. Well, almost... This place was also christened Australia’s first nude beach back in the 1970s, so hey… if you’re inclined, why not leave your clothes at home too? Kit on or kit off, drop by @ivybrook_farm for a tipple and a good night’s sleep if you’re in town! 🏖 🌅 #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: just a 2 hr flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, and a 45 minute drive to Maslin Beach in @officialfleurieupeninsula ] #FleurieuPeninsula #SeeAustralia #Australia

We all need a change in perspective once in a while… The tortured trees of #LakeBonney in @riverlandsouthaustralia have been pulling a crowd since 1921, and while we’ve seen plenty of snaps of this spot over the years, our mate @ozzytoggy clearly took a different spin on things this night… By day, the town of #Barmera is a watery wonderland with swimmers, boaties, windsurfers, canoers, skiers, and anglers all taking full advantage of nature’s playground - and it all starts at sunrise… Once you’ve clambered out of your tent, caravan, or cabin, grab coffee and morning tea at @flavoursoftheriverland before checking out @banrockstationwines for lunch and vino with a view! #SeeSouthAustralia 🌌🙌 [📍Location: just a 1hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, then a 2.5hr drive to #LakeBonney] #MyRiverland #MurrayRiver #SeeAustralia #Australia

Team Australia: represent! 💚💛When @brylee.gilbertson and @sliceofheavan were making their way down the Flinders Highway in @eyrepeninsula, they copped an eyeful of Australian gold! With #spring weaving all it’s magic just about everywhere, you’ll find taking a #roadtrip has never been more colourful... These #canola fields aren’t lonely either – in fact, there’s thousands of bursting #yellow buds popping up right across the State, from @mybarossa and @clarevalleysa through to @officialfleurieupeninsula and beyond. Whether it’s wildflowers, waves, wilderness or wildlife that floats your boat, if you’re up for an epic #EyrePeninsula adventure of your own, jump on board with @xploreeyre or @nullarbortravel to unearth more than a few other local gems, both on and off the bitumen. #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: 50 minute flight (or 7hr drive) to @port_lincoln from #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia ] #SpringBlooms #SeeAustralia #Australia

24C in Adelaide and we’ve gone a little ‘cave man’’... Just a hop-skip-and-jump from the city, @officialfleurieupeninsula’s original bohemian #beach town has always marched to the beat of its own drum - and with a thriving food, wine and arts scene to boot, it’ll whet just about anyone’s appetite. With plenty of spring and summer weather ahead, you – like @digital_gypsea here - will find this place an amazing spot to cool down, minus the city crowds. Think: turquoise waters, white sands, cozy little sea caves and fresh fish & chips… Then throw in #sunset drinks and dinner at the spectacular @starofgreece, and you’ll be sure to find utopia. When you’re done, just follow the sand to your ultra-cushy digs at @thejettyportwillunga, before drifting off to the sounds of the sea… Honey, we’re home! #SeeSouthAustralia 🏖 🌅 [📍Location: just a 2 hr flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia – then a 45 minute drive to #PortWillunga ] #FleurieuPeninsula #SeeAustralia #Australia

The Painted Desert’s out THAT way… but who knew? Down the road from the kaleidoscopic sands of #TheBreakaways here, you’ll find @cooberpedy_southaustralia – a.k.a. The Opal Capital of the World, where residents sleep underground by night and mine for precious gemstones by day! Rest your head ‘subterranean style’ at the legendary @desertcave and you’ll also find a good night’s sleep comes pretty easy. And hey, you’ll need it… with some of the area’s most spectacular sights, including the legendary Moon Plain, Painted Desert and Dog Fence all just out of town, you’ll find staying a few nights is always a good idea! Thanks for the snap, @_shav_bird_photography! #SeeSouthAustralia 🌈 🎨 🖌 [📍Location: a 2 hour flight (or 9 hours drive) to #CooberPedy from #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia ] #Outback #SeeAustralia #Australia

Coober Pedy... It’s a little bit 'Hollywood', and a whole lot underground, as our mate can attest! Not only is this quirky #outback city known as the #Opal Capital of The World – it’s also a thriving centre for film makers, who flock here for its post-apocalyptic landscape and the legendary ‘Moon Plain’ just out of town. Think: Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, Red Planet, Ground Zero, Pitch Black and Priscilla Queen of The Desert - which were all filmed around here in recent years. On the surface, you’ll see a living, breathing testament to human resilience – a thriving metropolis plonked on the remnants of an ancient inland sea which retreated over 70-million-years ago. But beneath its lunar crust, you’ll also unearth a fascinating city underground – with houses, shops, restaurants and hotels all tucked beneath the earth to escape the searing #desert heat. Hop on board with @aridareastours to find all the local gems, both above and below ground! #SeeSouthAustralia 🌅🙌 [📍Location: 9 hour drive, or 2 hour flight, from #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia to @cooberpedy_southaustralia ] #CooberPedy #SeeAustralia #Australia

Remember that day Mother Nature threw on her party dress in #Cummins? Our mate @eidrinn sure does… Plonked just down the road from some of @eyrepeninsula’s most stunning fishing and surf beaches, this town is surrounded by rich pastoral land that produces plenty of cereal crops, including this iridescent field of canola, among many others… We’re guessing this stuff may well be destined for the towering grain silos in nearby @tumbybaysa, which were recently given a stunning paint job by world-renowned Argentinian artist, @ronmuralist. Just down the road, you’ll also find some of the world’s best seafood in @port_lincoln and Coffin Bay, with local restaurants @line_and_label and @1802oysterbar dishing up some of the juiciest, plumpest fodder, fresh from the sea! #SeeSouthAustralia 🌼🌼🌼 [📍Location: 50 minute flight (or 7.5 hour drive) to #PortLincoln from #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia – and a 45 minute drive to @cummins_south_australia ] #EyrePeninsula #SeeAustralia #Australia
