South Australia is a state in the southern central part of Australia with a total land area around 380K square miles. It is similar to the rural landscape of west Texas although much larger in size and sparsely populated. Almost 75% of the state’s 1.7 million people live in the metropolitan area of the capital, Adelaide.
We visited South Australia in October 2018 which is early Spring season in Australia. We flew from Sydney to Adelaide and then stayed with my cousin Mizan at the picturesque town of Strathalbyn, a 90 min drive from Adelaide. We then visited nearby port towns of Goolwa, Port Elliott and Victor Harbor. Below are some photo highlights from that trip. Enjoy!
