A full 4 day road trip itinerary across South Australia, top things to do and places to visit

Updated: Jun 17, 2020

South Australia is easy to travel and a one of a kind Aussie experience!

It’s natural to associate South Australia with food and wine, but there is so much more to this picturesque region! It’s coastline is full of beautiful golden bays and turquoise waters, the sunsets are sensational, the landscapes of rolling hills are spectacular, and for a place that produces some of the world's best wine, we enjoyed wine tasting without the crowds.

With our Europcar rental allowing us to explore, we set off on a 4-day road trip across some of South Australia’s best regions! Bursting at the seams with activities, unique tastings and experiences, it's one hell of an epic, authentic Aussie-road trip!

Check out the below for the perfect 4 day adventure!

Day 1: Adelaide, McLaren Vale

After collecting our car at Adelaide airport, we headed for one of the inner-city beaches.

Henley beach is just a 10-minute drive from the airport.

With a few locals enjoying their weekend hangout, we took our cappuccinos and went for a walk down the promenade.

Head South along the coast towards McLaren Vale. Only 45 minutes from Adelaide, we found vineyards, so many vineyards…McLaren Vale's most famous road McMurtrie Mile sees many restaurants, wineries and breweries all along the one road. The choice of wineries and breweries in this region is overwhelming with over 100 choices!
