Eco Tourism

Enjoy nature

Nature lovers, South Australia is an eco tourism playground!

While Kangaroo Island and the Flinders Ranges are rich in ecotourism destinations, there are lots of attractions closer to Adelaide.

In the Adelaide Hills, wildlife sanctuaries and wilderness lodges have a diverse range of native animals and plants. Leave there and inside an hour be jumping on a catamaran to swim with playful bottlenose dolphins. 

Visit the Eyre Peninsula, where there are sea lions and dolphins to swim with!

Travel to the Flinders Ranges or the Limestone Coast to see eco tourism that’s millions of years old. 

Go wild

Stay in wilderness retreats on Kangaroo Island and enjoy guided tours to Seal Bay. You’ll be within touching distance! See the island’s unspoilt beauty from the water.

Go on an outback safari on the back of a camel or jump in a 4WD for a first-hand look at Aboriginal culture.

Take one of our “wild west” safaris to take in breathtaking views of the arid interior and remote coastlines that dominate the Nullarbor Plain, the “Bight” (Great Australian Bight) and Gawler Ranges. 

Take to the water

The Murray River and neighbouring wetlands are thriving. Meander a walking trail, book a houseboat or take a cruise to experience the might Murray River!

Eco tourism doesn’t get much better than the Coorong National Park. Here, special cruise boats take you to areas inaccessible to normal vessels.

You’ve got a lot of choice for your “eco” holiday, look for the “eco-certified” logo when you book.
