Flights to Adelaide

For curious-minded travelers who want to get closer to their passions, there’s no better reward than Adelaide and the state of South Australia. This is the artisan territory, always genuinely and uniquely Australian.

Easily transit in Auckland and on to Adelaide, South Australia’s capital, a city that celebrates the art of living well. With over 270 wineries and home to some of the world's most inventive restaurants, it's not to be missed. Easily access The Outback for unforgettable adventures and experience unique wildlife in their natural habitat like on the famous Kangaroo Island.

Adelaide is almost surrounded by grape-growing regions and they all come with cellar doors that exist only to celebrate and share the glory of South Australian wines. Whether you guide yourself or join one of the many Adelaide food and wine tours available, you can sip your way through a flight of tastings or enjoy a couple of glasses in the garden, with an antipasto platter for company.

‘The 20-minute city’ is the kind of place where you never have to think too hard about your next excursion. There’s so much to do, and everywhere is easy to get to.

Where there’s great wine, there’s great food. Some of the most innovative restaurants in the world are found in Adelaide.

In South Australia you can discover the joys of destination dining; unique eating experiences that will really impress your foodie friends back home. Some of them are five-star fancy; others are super-relaxed and at one with nature.

McLaren Vale's premier destination dining venue is the d'Arenberg Cube Restaurant. Here you can ooh and ahh your way through an 11-course degustation menu, with wine pairing if you want it, in surroundings where the amazing views are equal only to the art. This place is one-of-a-kind in the global wine world.

In South Australia, you don’t have to look for wildlife. It is just part of everyday life. Start with Kangaroo Island, whose name says it all. Just a 20-min flight from Adelaide, this zoo without fences abounds with kangaroos, koalas, sea lions, hundreds of bird species, and more, all roaming about in their natural state.

Or, go a little further West from Adelaide to the Eyre Peninsula and Port Lincoln. Known as the aquatic playground of Australia, some of the experiences include swimming with seals, and (for the braver ones) cage diving with great white sharks. The region is also abundant with fresh seafood: enjoy fresh oysters right of the ocean as you tour an oyster farm (complete with hip-waders) in Coffin Bay; Or dig for cockles on the beach, where your guide will cook them on the spot.

The Outback is an iconic experience, just a short 45-minute flight (or a 4.5 hour drive) from Adelaide will put you in the real-deal, red-dirt outback of Flinders Ranges where ancient rock formations (including the breath-taking Wilpena Pound), wildlife, and Aboriginal history abound. And for something completely different, get a taste of mining life by venturing further North to Coober Pedy, the world’s largest opal mining site, where half the town dwells underground due to the extreme heat.
