There’s nothing ordinary about the staircase to Southport beach, as the locals at @coastmotelandapartments know all too well… These steps definitely have pulling power… In fact, after rolling up in the carpark on any given day, you’ll find surfers, #beach walkers, photographers and travellers all drawn like magnets to the silky sands below. Not just great spot to warm yourself up on a chilly late-autumn morning, they’re also just a stone’s throw from some of the most revered wine country on the planet, with the hallowed turf of @mclaren_vale just a stone’s throw from the water. After burning up the calories on a brisk stroll down below, fuel up on latin liquid at the super chilled, super edgy @alphaboxdice with some of the finest Grenache, Montepulciano, Nebbiolo, Nero d’Avola, Barbera and Dolcetto you’ll ever wrap your lips around! #SeeSouthAustralia  [Location: just a 1 hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, and a 45 minute drive to Port Noarlunga in @officialfleurieupeninsula ] #FleurieuPeninsula #SeeAustralia #Australia

Okay kids… Here’s why we always stop on RED! The late-autumn colours are flowing just about everywhere right now, from the kaleidoscopic streets of Adelaide right up to @visitadelaidehills! There’s few places packing more punch than Mount Lofty @botanicgardenssa, where @monty1854 found a peachy palette showing serious late-season flair! Amongst this mosaic of crimson, yellow and orange, you’ll find more than a few spots to roll out the picnic rug and enjoy a nice hot coffee and some @udderdelightscheese… And hey, when that chilly breeze rolls through, respite is never too far away. Duck up the road to @ambleside_distillers to grab yourself a sure-fire heart starter in their award-winning No.8 Botanical Gin! Just don’t sweat the calories… This is the ‘Land of the Long Lunch’... and you can always work it off on a stroll around Australia’s oldest German village with @hahndorfwalkingtours! #SeeSouthAustralia ️ [ Location: just a 1 hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia then a 25 minute drive to #MountLofty Botanic Garden in #VisitAdelaideHills ] #AdelaideHills #Australia #SeeAustralia #Travel

Adelaide Hills
It may be a little chilly out there this Foodie Friday, but nothing gets between Adelaide locals and our East End eats! From chopsticks and chocolate to secret bars and Belgian beer, every Adelaide foodie has a favourite hotspot on @rundlesteast. One of ours is @bistroblackwood, home to chef royalty @zonfrillo, dishing up bistro classics alongside a punchy wine list featuring lo-fi local producers. For something a little more intimate, check out his sister establishment @rest_orana_ upstairs – and recently named Australia’s restaurant of the year by @gourmettraveller. While you’re quaffing matching wines, you’ll treat your tastebuds to something totally different, savouring the unique tastes of native Australia over a 10-course dinner! Cheers for the snap @adelaust! #SeeSouthAustralia  [Location: just 2 hrs flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia ] #RundleStreet #RestaurantAustralia #Australia #Travel

Standing at Headings Lookout with a strong coffee in hand is a time-honoured @riverlandsouthaustralia tradition, as @benjamingoode can attest... Here, as the red banks glow, galahs cackle and pelicans drift in dawn thermals, you’ll find it’s easy to lose yourself in the moment. So much so in fact, that captaining your own luxury @drifttheexperience houseboat can bring its own unique set of problems - you’ll find it almost impossible to keep track of minutes, hours and days while ambling along the mighty #MurrayRiver. While floating down this ancient corridor through time, you’ll find yourself throwing away your watch, kicking back in the spa, popping the cork on another bottle of sparkling and toasting to life in the slow lane… And hey, that’s just as nature intended! #SeeSouthAustralia ️ [Location: a 2hr flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, and a 3hr drive to #Renmark in #MyRiverland ] #DestinationRiverland #SeeAustralia #Australia

Renmark, South Australia, Australia
And it was all yellow…  When @recrio was out strolling the streets of Maylands, just a short drive from downtown Adelaide, she ran into a few traffic stoppers along the way! Whether you’re in the big smoke or the ‘burbs, you’ll find plenty of pit stops around town to feast by the fire or soak in a winter warmer. Only ten-minutes away in the CBD, don’t miss calling into @prohibitionliquor in Gilbert Street, the city’s first cellar door for spirits! Not only is it a prime spot to taste and try their world-famous gin direct from the maker – you’ll also load up on local craft beer and wine, antipasto platters, cheese plates and gourmet sour dough toasties! If you roll in before lunchtime, their mates @tell_henry will also be on hand to pour a nice hot coffee just to kick start your session! Mmmm… coffee + cocktails + carbs… Where do we sign?! #SeeSouthAustralia  [ Location: just a 2 hr flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia ] #Autumn #Australia #SeeAustralia #Travel

Thought you missed it, right? Just when we thought the colour show might be ending at Mount Lofty @botanicgardenssa, along came our mate @__serio__ to deliver this peachy pie from the sky. Late-#autumn and winter is an incredible time of year to visit @visitadelaidehills, and when you’re not catching the last of the season’s colours, you’ll also find plenty of cozy watering holes tucked away around here. We’d suggest warming up with a big pint of Weissbier and a giant pretzel sandwich at @hahndorfinn before resting up your gloriously full tummy at @hahndorfresort down the road. A firm family favourite, this place also has plenty to keep the little tackers entertained, with mini golf, a jumping cushion, and even a very friendly gaggle of geese! #SeeSouthAustralia  [ Location: just a 1 hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia then a 25 minute drive to #MountLofty Botanic Garden in #VisitAdelaideHills ] #AdelaideHills #Australia #SeeAustralia #Travel

Diesel and dust, petrol and musk…. Our mates @theblondenomads aren’t the only ones hitting the road to see our incredible pink lakes right now! The road to the legendary @eyrepeninsula surfing mecca of Cactus Beach takes intrepid travellers right past Lake MacDonnell, where Mother Nature’s been spilling her palette of pink and green! This stunning strawberry milkshake - with a twist of lime - is the result of high salinity and a thriving population of ‘halobacteria’ (read: cool little micro-organisms that party in the water). A little further west, Fowlers Bay and Head of Bight are also both preparing to host hundreds of Southern Right Whales (May-Oct), currently making their annual migration here from Antarctica… Drop a line to @epcruises and @chintaair to catch the whale show from above and below - and click our bio link ⬆️ for more on our #PinkLake Bucketlist!   #SeeSouthAustralia [Location: a 1hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, then a 1.5hr flight (or 8.5 hour drive) to @cedunaonline, and a 45min drive to Point Sinclair in #EyrePeninsula ] #SeeAustralia #Australia #SouthAustralia

Cactus Beach
Are you shivering? Come stand in the Sun for a little bit! When @sjakko8 ventured down to @yorkepeninsula’s Innes National Park recently, he also found just the right spot to catch a few warming late-autumn rays... Deep in the wild scapes of this legendary ‘boot leg’ of the south, this coastline is prime territory for road-trippers and steeped in both surfing and maritime history. Home to dramatic, sweeping beaches at every turn and more wildlife than an Attenborough doco, you’ll also find plenty of spots to camp down by the sand. As the sun disappears and the cool night descends, kick back by the roaring fire at your 'million star hotel' with a hearty pint of @watsacowie’s ‘Ethel Porter’ from Minlaton. #SeeSouthAustralia ️ [Location: just a 1 hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia – then a 3.5hr drive to #InnesNationalPark ] #YorkePeninsula #SeeAustralia #Australia

And then a Unicorn appeared, and we all drank wine… When @wirrawirrawines looked out over their legendary Scrubby Rise #vineyard the other day, they topped up their glass with this ridiculously good #rainbow from the comfort of their own #wine ‘jetty’! With a philosophy revolving around pure unadulterated fun, plonk yourself at this iconic @mclaren_vale cellar door and you can always expect the unexpected... In fact, once you’ve quaffed your way through their outrageously good wine list and blissed out over lunch in Harry’s Deli, you’ll be encouraged to declare war on your fellow wine-drinkers - hurling watermelons with a giant medieval catapult! Sure, we all know every rainbow has a pot of gold at the end of it… but you didn’t really expect THAT now, did you? #SeeSouthAustralia [Location: just a 2hr flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia, and a 45 minute drive to #McLarenVale in @officialfleurieupeninsula ] #FleurieuPeninsula #SeeAustralia #Australia

Are your teeth chattering?! It’s an icy cold Foodie Friday so we’re warming up with @callumjackson and these delicious house-made pancakes with berry compote, whipped cream and maple syrup! Can’t really see us moving for a while… Maybe just to the fireplace for a hot chocolate? Twist our arm and we might even roll ourselves down the hill to guzzle boutique wine by the 360-degree open fireplace at @mtloftyvineyard… Actually, we might do lunch there too? How about some Hearth Bakery organic sourdough to start, then a little Cured Port Lincoln Kingfish and the Forest Range Chicken for mains? That should do it. Oh wait, but then there’s dessert… Some spectacular @woodsidecheese artisan goodies should finish the afternoon quite nicely! But first, back to our pancakes… Can you pass us the syrup? #SeeSouthAustralia 🥞️ [Location: just a 2hr flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia – then a 30 minute drive to #VisitAdelaideHills ] #AdelaideHills #RestaurantAustralia #Australia

Weather: cloudy, but FINE… Anyone who makes the trek just 45-minutes south of Adelaide will tell you #SellicksBeach is one sexy beast! With Jurassic cliffs, a beach you can drive right onto and the world-class wines of @mclaren_vale nestled right over those green hills, this is just one of the coastal jewels of @officialfleurieupeninsula.

Brrrrrr! It’s hard to get out of bed on these chilly #autumn mornings, isn’t it? Alas, those who rise early will always find a little gold in the #fog, as @didi_photos discovered last week in @visitadelaidehills... After a steaming cup of coffee and a delicious cooked breakfast he took a short stroll from @mountloftyhouse before walking straight into an oil painting! Right now, there’s dewy fields and wooded wonderlands at every fork in the road, and a lazy country drive will soon have you gorging on a treasure-trove of food and drink at the stunning @thelanevineyard in @hahndorf_southaustralia. Soaking in their very best wines with 360-degree views and some of the chef’s finest creations, you’ll also have time to kick back, quaff Coffin Bay oysters and Chardonnay while pondering which fireplace to park your boots at next… Click the link in our bio ️️️ for our toastiest spots in town... ️  [Location: just a 2hr flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia – then a 30 minute drive to #VisitAdelaideHills ] #AdelaideHills #SeeAustralia #Australia
