The only Australian state to be founded entirely by free settles, South Australia was established to embody all that is good in British society such as no religious discrimination and low unemployment. South Australia contains many spectacular sites including dormant volcanoes, caves, deserts and, surprisingly, pine forests. The state is also famous for some of Australia’s finest wines. Enjoy a drop of fine wine, experience the elegant city of Adelaide and discover the varied landscape of South Australia with Best Western.
Enveloped by green parklands and a tranquil river, Adelaide, or the ‘city of churches’ is known for its arts, culture and fine dining. Enjoy a walk through leafy Victoria Square, or shop ‘til you drop in Rundle Mall. Night owls will love the nightlife on Hindley Street. Stroll along the grand North Terrace to Parliament House, the Adelaide Casino, and enjoy the Art Gallery of South Australia and the Adelaide Arts Festival. For something different, explore historic St Peter’s Cathedral or climb to the Lights’ Vision Lookout for a spectacular panoramic view of the city. Otherwise, move at a more leisurely pace with a cruise along the River Torrens or a tram ride to the Glenelg beachside.
Inspiration to some of Australia’s most well-known artists, the hills feature picturesque farmlands, charming villages and breathtaking vistas. The Adelaide Hills are so beautiful they look as if they have been made to be painted.
