South Australia [1] is an Australian state with many contrasts. The southern portion of the state is pastoral, but as you drive north it becomes progressively drier and more barren until it becomes arid desert. Because of this, the majority of the population live to the south and east of Adelaide.

Get in

South Australia's main air gateway is Adelaide Airport. Which hosts both domestic and international flights. Some internation flights into Adelaide are from Singapore, Malaysia and New Zealand. There are regular domestic flights into Adelaide from all Australian Capital Cities. Train services include the Indian Pacific (from Perth and Sydney), The Gahn (from Darwin through Alice Springs) and the Overland (from Melbourne). There is also extensive roads to and from the State. Be careful though as some areas require you to surrender fruit and vegetable matter at the border to prevent Fruit Fly infestation, and decimating the fruit industry.
