South Australia Accommodation
Sleep easy in effortless Adelaide
South Australia's capital city is a popular destination for domestic travellers, hosting a slew of annual events such as the Adelaide Fringe, the Clipsal 500 and Womadelaide among many others. Whether you're in town for a festival or simply staying for fun, there is plenty of Adelaide accommodation to be found.
Treat yourself to a sleek stay at a 5-star hotel by choosing the Crowne Plaza, Hilton, InterContinental, Sebel or Stamford, most of which are located on or around North Terrace. Hotels, motels and more abound across this grid-lined city, especially around Victoria or Hindmarsh Squares where cafes and shopping opportunities aren't in short supply.
Where to stay in wine country
Settle down among the vineyard-covered hills by getting in early and securing your accommodation in South Australia's premier wine destinations, most notably the Barossa, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale. Home to gastronomic artisans and infused with colonial heritage, Adelaide's surrounding wine country is ideally suited for a special weekend away.
Soak in the country charm at the exclusive Kingsford Homestead or The Louise in the Barossa Valley just an hour from Adelaide, wine and dine at the Clare Country Club in the tumbling Clare Valley hills, or base yourself at an exquisite bed and breakfast in McLaren Vale directly south of the city.
Position yourself on the peninsula
The is plenty of South Australia accommodation to come across as you cruise the state's southern coast. Explore the Eyre Peninsular west of Adelaide with hotels in Whyalla, Port Lincoln, Ceduna and Tumby Bay.
If the Fleurieu Peninsula closer to the capital is more on the mark, take your pick of accommodation in the beachside towns of Normanville, Cape Jervis and Victor Harbour on the east coast. You can always venture off the mainland to Kangaroo Island from Cape Jervis, where a handful of seafront stays including the 4-star Mercure are found.
