Flight Network has just released The World’s Ultimate Bucket List for 2018, and it probably comes as no surprise to you that South Australia has a predominant feature on the list. If you’re lucky enough to live or have visited South Australia you’ll know that there is an abundance of things to experience, not to mention our unique wildlife, a stack of music and food festivals, and incredible beaches.
After snagging the world’s attention in this year’s @nfl Dundee #Superbowl campaign, @australia’s best mate in tourism @chrishemsworth ducked in for a splash of @jacobscreekwine’s top drop in @mybarossa before retracing #Dundee’s steps on @authentickangarooisland this week! With its food, wine, beaches and wildlife all turning it on, seems ‘KI’ not only delivered a prime spot to get back to nature, but also some quality time with the family, a little surfing, and even a chance to hang out with the locals at @sealbay. After touring with @kiwildernesstours, catching dinner with @hooked_on_ki and cuddling a koala at @kiwildlifepark, it was time to jump in for a dip with @kimarineadventures and the north coast’s prolific (and very friendly) dolphin squad! If that’s enough to spark your inner travel bug, just click the link in our bio ⬆️⬆️⬆️ for a whole swag of ideas to kick-start your #SeeSouthAustralia adventures! 🐨🐬🏖🍷 [📍Location: just 2 hrs flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, then a 35 minute @qantas flight (or 2.5hrs drive/ferry) to Kangaroo Island ]
To comprise this incredible list of things to do, places to see, and adventures to embark on, Flight Network has consulted with over 800 travel journalists, bloggers, and editors to gain the best insight. Amongst several other amazing Australia destinations and experiences including snorkeling in The Great Barrier Reef, Driving the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, and taking a trip to the Sydney Harbor Bridge – exploring the Australia Outback in Alice Springs is arguably one of the most memorable and breathtaking experiences on the list.
No hurry, folks… Time moves slowly out here, as @jordaaaan_ and @harryvick know all too well… Hit the road through Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park and you’ll find it’s akin to a journey through time, with those rugged peaks up ahead having been shaped and eroded over 540 million years. Not only are these the remnants of a once larger-than-the-Himalayas mountain range, they’re also loaded with ancient fossils, animals and birdlife, with wedge-tailed eagles often seen soaring over the ramparts. But rest assured, beyond all that red dust and drama there’s no need to give up your creature comforts… If you’ve got a thirst for adventure but an appetite for comfort, rest your weary soul at @flinders_bush_retreats before watching the stars dance above – all from the comfort of your cushy eco tent or guesthouse. Sleep tight, travellers! 🌄🚙🙌 #SeeSouthAustralia [📍 Location: just 2 hrs flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia and a 5 hour drive to Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park ] #FlindersRanges #Outback SeeAustralia #Australia
Up in the Flinders Ranges is where you’ll experience the vast, red-soaked landscape that spans from the Northern to the Southern Australia coastlines. Flight Network has labelled it as one of “the most challenging yet spectacular destinations on the planet”.
Whether you go to see over 2 million square miles of rugged mountain peak views, incredible gorges, or the chance to see some of our signature wildlife – the world seems at your fingertips when you’re in the Australia Outback.
