South Australia might just be the most underrated state in the whole of Australia. Often overlooked by the massive lying on their western and northern borders, there is an incredible amount to explore in SA. 

From incredible desert road trips, to dramatic coastlines, stunning remote islands, beautiful wine regions and the beginning of Australia’s longest straight road, the mighty Nullarbor Plain. There’s an endless amount to discover in South Australia, most of which is largely untouched and considered remote.
