South: Summer is fairly dry and hot (30), Winter is cool (minimum 8) with 80 mm of rain per month. North: Climate is extreme and unforgiving. Summer can get up over 50 while winter nights can dip below freezing. Neither season gets much rain.
Near the bottom of the continent, South Australia, the driest state, is home to wine tasting and whale watching, opals in the outback, fantastic festivals and superior surfing. South Australia is the country’s most “forward thinking” state, passing anti discrimination and racism laws in the early 1970’s.
Discover the extreme climates of Coober Pedy and the Outback and small town agricultural charm in the Barossa Valley and Riverland areas. Continuing west, the York and Eyre Peninsulas are great for whale watching or the last look at the ocean before heading across the Nullarbor Plain to Western Australia.
With so much to see and do, and a great chilled out attitude, South Australia is a backpacker’s best kept secret.
