Attractions

If you’re travelling to South Australia for our conference, this page is a quick guide to some of our favourite places and activities that you might like to experience while you are here. For more ideas and to plan your trip, head to southaustralia.com

Kangaroo Island

Kangaroo Island is one of South Australia’s most popular tourist attractions. A day’s journey from Adelaide, it is a pristine haven for wildlife including kangaroos, seals, sea lions, penguins and migratory birds. Fly with Rex or QantasLink from Adelaide or take your car on the Sealink Ferry or travel with KI Connect.

The Barossa Valley

Just one hour’s drive north east of Adelaide, the Barossa is an internationally acclaimed wine region with more than 150 wineries and 80 cellar doors. You can tour by bike, car or hot air balloon, dine at gourmet restaurants and visit the farmers markets for local produce.

Cleland Wildlife Park

Visit Cleland Wildlife Park and feed kangaroos, wander wetlands, and surround yourself with over 130 species of Australian wildlife, all just 20 minutes from Adelaide. Cleland Wildlife Park is one of only a few places in the world where visitors can hold a koala.

Adelaide city attractions

The Central Market is a must for any food lover visiting Adelaide. The oldest and probably the best market in Australia; it is full to the brim with produce, cafes and characters. Friday nights and Saturday mornings are a highlight for people watching.

If you are keen on cricket you can catch the Adelaide Strikers playing Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane at the iconic Adelaide Oval either side of the conference dates.

The Art Gallery of South Australia, the SA Museum and the Adelaide Botanic Gardens are all within a few minutes walk from the conference venue.

Tarnanthi

Tarnanthi (pronounced tar-nan-dee) is a world class festival and exhibition that presents works of artistic excellence, courage and innovation by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists from across the country.  The name comes from the language of the Kaurna people, the traditional owners of the Adelaide Plains. It means to come forth or appear – like the sun and the first emergence of light.

Tarnanthi is showing at the Art Gallery of South Australia from 19 October 2019 through 27 January 2020.
