The dumplings are steaming, the riverbank is primed to party and Asia’s hottest acts are taking over town… yep, @OzAsiaFestival is here! A cultural feast for all senses, there’s a lot more to this #festival than the seriously delicious #dumplings (although we’ll take 10 thanks). Kicking off last night, OzAsia brings more than 60 events and 850 artists spanning music, theatre, dance, visual #art, literature and food to the @AdelaideFesCent on the banks of Adelaide’s #RiverTorrens until November 3 and it’s a cultural explosion of epic proportions. With 35 Adelaide exclusive performances, five world-first shows and 22 Australian premieres, #OzA#OzAsiaival is the biggest event of its kind in Australia and will transport you to the colourful, beating heart of #Asia without even having to get on a plane. Feeling overwhelmed? We come armed with suggestions of what to see and do at #OzAsia, just check out the link in our bio! Tonight, you’ll find us sipping cocktails and sampling dumplings as the sun goes down over the @luckydumplingmarket ... care to join us? 🎏🍹🥟 #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: just a 2hr flight from Sydney to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia ] #SeeAustralia #Australia

Call off the search party, we’ve found the ultimate #island paradise! Welcome to Western River Cove, one of @authentickangarooisland’s best kept secrets… so let’s dive in! Lounging on snow white sand and splashing in sparkling turquoise waters like @sarahbyden, you’d be forgiven for pinching yourself but we can tell you this seaside utopia is the real deal. Flanked by tranquil coves, gentle lapping waves and safe swimming beaches, #KangarooIsland's jaw-dropping north coast is the ultimate #summer destination. The perfect spot for a secluded dip, #WesternRiverCove is ringed by steep headlands on either side, boasting gleaming white sands, azure water and orange lichen-covered rock formations, and chances are, you’ll have the #beach all to yourself! Set up camp for the night, meander down over the bridge and along the Western River to this pristine little cove and get ready for some serious #fun in the #sun! #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: just a 40 min flight from Adelaide to #Kingscote or a 1 hour 40 minute drive from #Adelaide to #CapeJervis and then a 40 minute ferry ride to #Penneshaw in #SouthAustralia ]

Now that is what we call a work of art! This ancient #outback masterpiece has been 540 million years in the making and we reckon it could just be one of Mother Nature’s finest pieces! With epic towering peaks, jaw-dropping gorges and stunning red earth, the #Fli#FlindersRanges make for a pretty impressive canvas and this art gallery is well-worth exploring. Pack up the car and spend a weekend hiking, bike riding and wildlife watching around #IkaraFlindersRangesNationalPark where you can scale #WilpenaPound, cosy up at @wilpenapoundresort and stargaze from your glamping tent or kick back in a luxury eco-villa at @rawnsleypark and slumber with views of the stars from your very own sky roof above your bed. Thanks for the snap @dubstamatic #SeeSouthAustralia 🎨 [📍Location: just a 1hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia and a 5hr drive to the #FlindersRanges ]  #SeeAustralia #Australia #Travel

Welcome to the end of the earth... also known as the #BundaCliffs in @eyrepeninsula. Yep, they definitely don’t call this the #GreatAustralianBight for nothing! This dramatic and isolated coastline is home to the longest uninterrupted line of sea #cliffs in the world (all 100+ kilometres of them) and it’s the perfect spot to stop and stretch your legs on the #roadtrip from Perth to #Ade#Adelaide along the #Nullarbor as our friend @danxparsons discovered. Get a birds-eye view of this breathtaking Australian icon from the cockpit with @chintaair, or float by boat or kayak with @epcruises at Fowlers Bay! While you’re there, the gentle giants of the deep might even swing by to say hello - #SouthernRightWhales flock to these waters from Antarctica with calving season in full swing until late October. 🐋 #SeeSouthAustralia 🙌 [📍Location: 1hr 30 minute flight to Ceduna from #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia and about 3hrs drive to #HeadOfBight in #EyrePeninsula ]

Expect a warm welcome when you arrive on #KangarooIsland! 👋🐬Island living is in full swing over this way and we’d be jumping for joy too if we had some of the most pristine, protected waters to hang out in and a seafood smorgasbord to snack on. The dolphins? Well they have that too, but they also love to play with guests on @kimarineadventures’ daily tours. Their only request is that you get in and join – how can you refuse an invitation as enthusiastic as this?! Seeing #dolphins on tour is guaranteed but you’re also likely to see seals, sea eagles, sting rays and whales (May-Oct) and of course @authentickangarooisland’s impressive coastline. #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: just a 40 min flight from Adelaide to #Kingscote or a 1 hour 40 minute drive from #Adelaide to #CapeJervis and then a 40 minute ferry ride to #Penneshaw in #SouthAustralia ]

Hello pretty! #NorthTerrace is a bustling boulevard with some of #Ade#Adelaide’s most impressive and architectural 19th century colonial buildings. It’s the city’s historical precinct where our political, educational and cultural institutions neighbour grand residences, each telling the most interesting and notable stories of South Australia’s past. Take a self-guided stroll starting from The Holy Trinity Church (established in 1836), past the Adelaide Railway Station, which has been greeting rail passengers for over 80 years, and onward to Old Parliament House established in 1842 with a board of four men and the Governor. Further along, stop in to the State Library of South Australia – particularly the Mortlock Wing which looks like a scene out of Harry Potter – and on to the criti8cally acclaimed @southaustralianmuseum. There’s plenty of shade under the Plane Trees and lots to contemplate as you watch the city go by 181 years after it was first settled. 🏛🚶‍♀️ thank you for tagging #SeeSouthAustralia @joeyjoenes [📍Location: just a 1 hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia ]​

There aren’t many other roads as iconic in Australia than Cape Du Couedic in Flinders Chase National Park, @authentickangarooisland. As you snake your way up and over these impressive hills and around each bend, the views that are revealed before you are the most spectacular and southern you’ll get on the island – there’s literally nothing between @pbsucheyre and Antarctica. At the end of the road you’ll be met with the most #RemarkableRocks you’re likely to meet, with each granite boulder precariously positioned and balanced as natural work of art. #FlindersChaseNationalPark is a rugged wilderness and a hikers delight if you’re keen to get off the beaten track. In fact, over a five day discovery, you can hike the #KangarooIsland #WildernessTrail, one of Australia’s great walks, traversing 61km across the island. #SeeSouthAustralia [📍Location: just a 40 min flight from Adelaide to #Kingscote or a 1 hour 40 minute drive from #Adelaide to #CapeJervis and then a 40 minute ferry ride to #Penneshaw in #SouthAustralia ]

Pool – check. Ocean views – check. Sunshine – check. Yep, we’re not moving. Holidaying Hamptons-style and the living is easy on the #limestonecoast, just check into #TheWhiteHouseRobe and leave your winter blues at the door like @sarahbyden. A quick 90 minute drive from Mount Gambier, the picturesque coastal town of #Rob#Robe transforms from a local’s #seaside village to a bustling and chic holiday hotspot come warmer weather and with epic views over the marina and just a short stroll from long stretches of #beach - we reckon it’s a pretty good spot to soak up the sun. Start your day off with a pick-me-up coffee and breakfast at @MahaliaCoffee, sample the smorgasbord of local #seafood on offer (Robe is famed for its crayfish) and wind down with a local brew at @RobeTownBrewery. Browse boutique shops, stroll along Long Beach stretching 14km of sandy-white bliss or drive right on to the sand and spend the day enjoying the surf. Summer vibes – check #SeeSouthAustralia 🐟🦐🥂🏖 [📍Location: a 6hr drive from Melbourne to #Robe, or a 3.5hr drive from #Adelaide in #SouthAustralia ] #RobeSA #RestaurantAustralia #SeeAustralia #Australia
