Looking for an escape to really relax and unwind? South Australia is the home to Australia’s gourmet experiences and there are over 200 cellar doors in the state for wine connoisseurs to visit.

There is no better way to experience South Australia’s wineries than staying in one of the state’s many caravan holiday parks. As Australia’s wine and seafood capital, South Australia is the perfect place to travel and stay to combine gourmet delights and quality wine. Whether it’s a big or small glass, red or white, or maybe even bubbly, South Australia is renowned for amazing wines. Sip some of Australia’s finest wines in the Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, and McLaren Vale wine regions. Or taste fresh seafood at the famous Eyre Peninsula.

Try something new and relish two of life’s passions at once by incorporating a gourmet food or wine experience as part of your caravanning or camping adventure. There are just so many ways to explore one of the richest wine regions in the world and experience award winning wines first hand. Caravan holiday parks offer a range of accommodation for all tastes and budgets, from luxurious cabins to camping and caravan sites that give you total access to the great outdoors.

You can plan an escape with your partner, or even have a girl’s weekend while the kids get a chance to stretch their legs, play, and enjoy all the facilities available at caravan holiday parks. Many parks have modern cabin accommodation with all of the modern conveniences you could dream of including stainless steel appliances, state of the art entertainment equipment and generously sized bedrooms.

If you are looking to experience some of Australia’s richest culture and heritage, you can’t go past South Australia. The capital city Adelaide, the city of churches, has some of Australia’s most beautiful heritage buildings as well as world class art galleries, museums, and festivals. Also not to be missed is the stunning Flinders Ranges, a must-do for people wanting to experience the stunning natural beauty of Australia’s biggest mountain range.

The very best way to experience all that South Australia has to offer is staying in a caravan holiday park, it’s the best way to be close to nature while also just a hop, skip, and a jump away from world class restaurants and wineries. With accommodation options for every taste and every budget, it has never been a better time to experience South Australia while caravanning or camping!
