Destinations in SA - Holidays & Places to Visit

In Adelaide you will find colonial architecture, museums and a top rated shopping mall. Ayers House Museum, Art Images Gallery, Old Government House, and the Hill Smith Gallery are a great way to get to learn about the history in South Australia and the impact it has made on the country. Spend a day driving your car hire to visit the wonderful vineyards, such as, Ashton Hills Vineyard, Rocky Ridge Vineyard and the Cradle of Hills McLaren Vale Winery. Other attractions in Adelaide include swimming with the dolphins at Glenelg Beach, picnic at the beautiful Botanic Park, or take a boast and sail through the rose gardens in Rymill Park.

Barossa Valley is a city that any wine enthusiast will want to visit. Take your Budget rental and head to the Butcher, Baker, Wine Maker Trail and sample quality locale produce and world-famous wines. Some of the vineyards along this trail include Yalumba, Seppelts, Penfolds and Two Hands. When done with the trail head to the neighboring town of Gawler and experience the stone churches, galleries and museums of this picturesque heritage town.

If you want to learn more about life under the sea, in Australia, and hoping to get an up close and personal look then take your rental car and drive over to the Eyre Peninsula. When there you can swin with sea lions at Baird Bay, snorkel with cuttlefish in Whyalla or go cage diving with a Great White shark in Port Lincoln. At the Bight Marine Park you can get in some enjoyable whale watching or do some bird watching at the Lake Newland Conservation Park. If you head to the Fleurieu Peninsula you can dive or snorkel with sea dragons from the Rapid Bay jetty, watch migrating whales at Victor Harbor or canoe past wetland birds in the Coorong’s Lagoon.

Of course, no holiday in Australia would be complete without a visit to the Outback. Explore the majestic, yet rugged, Flinders Ranges, visit Wilpena Pound and walk the rim of the amphitheatre or take a scenic flight and observe the beautiful sights down below or head to Coober Pedy and dig for some fossil opals in the unique underground town.

Other amazing towns to visit while in South Australia include Clare Valley, Kangaroo Island, Limestone Coast and Murray River.

Many of our locations are unable to obtain insurance for under 21 year old drivers who are therefore required, prior to the start of the rental, to present an original Insurance Certificate of Currency - not a cover note - that indemnifies the replacement value of Budget's vehicle and third party property damage up to $20 million for any one occurrence. The certificate must be issued by a reputable insurer (as opposed to a broker) and is accepted at the discretion of the prospective location with which arrangements should be made directly.
