Aside from serving as the capital of South Australia and a home base for many visitors to the area, Adelaide is also a common gateway into the world-famous Australian Outback. The 950-mile (1,530-km) scenic drive to Alice Springs is a classic road trip for Aussies and travelers alike, so whether you have time for the whole multi-day journey or prefer a shorter jaunt, there's plenty to see. Here are some of the highlights.

  • Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park, set about five hours from Adelaide by road, features South Australia's largest mountain range. Be sure to visit Wilpena Pound, a massive natural basin and prime hiking spot.
  • Coober Pedy, known as the "Opal Capital of the World," attracts visitors for two reasons: its precious gems, and the interesting underground homes where most of the town resides. The drive from Adelaide takes nearly nine hours, so many tours include an overnight stay in one of the subterranean hotels.
  • The Oodnadatta Track, one of the most famous Outback tracks, is popular among first-time offroaders. Although you could drive the entire 385-mile (620-km) gravel and dirt path in one day, most travelers choose to camp along the way and enjoy stops at Lake Eyre and William Creek.

3-Day Adelaide to Melbourne Overland Trip through Grampians and Great Ocean Road
"It was fantastic! Amazing route, places, we have visited dozens of viewpoints, but also special places where there were no tourists and most of all the guide: Jiri/Jerry was the best guide ever! He knew everything about geography, biology, history and more and all that in a funny way and on time ;) I loved that trip and for sure I will go with that company someday again."..."

Self-Guided Waterfall Gully to Mount Lofty Hike from Adelaide
"Tour guide Mike was very friendly cooperative and gave good advice at the start of the hike location regarding routes and expected times which turned out to be fairly accurate. The first part of the hike was pleasant in the cool weather visiting the flowing first and second falls and passing through interesting Gully vegatation After this the steep climb commenced and apart from a few slight downhill and flatter stretches continued all the way to the summit. Other points of interest were Wilson's Bog a forest of many trees Mt Lofty Cottage and the city and suburban and ocean views from the summit After spending about 25 minutes at the summit the return journey although not requiring so much energy still required aj lot if care in the steep downhill sections. An early start is certainly a good recommendation as attempting the ascent in warm weather is not a good idea especially for those in the older age groups. My guide generously offered to take me all the way home but I did not accept his offer as I was not as exausted as he thought I was."..."
